Have you ever wondered what it would be like to do a 100-mile bike ride that takes place completely on City of Spokane bike routes? Brandon Blankenagle , of Spokane is making this dream a reality.
Blankenagle is the City of Spokane’s Capital Projects Engineer who has combined the passion for his work and bike-commuting to create an epic, week-long, bike-commuting adventure in Spokane.
Are you the type to shy away from long bike rides during the work week? Don’t let that stop you from registering for the Commute of the Century– the ride is broken up into six routes (9-17 miles each) that take place on different days of Bike to Work Week. By the end of the week, you will have covered 100 miles of Spokane!
Each group ride begins at 11:30 AM at the Rotary Fountain at Riverfront Park in Spokane during the week of May 12th-16th. Join any or all of the extended lunch-hour group rides to experience Spokane’s bicycle infrastructure over six routes across the city. Each ride will end at the same place they begin: The Rotary Fountain in Riverfront Park.
Don’t have the time at lunch? You can follow the route on your own and still get credit. Register and get more information.
Register for Spokane Bike to Work Week too, if you haven’t already. The two events are great week-long ways to celebrate the Spring riding season in Spokane! Information about both events can be found at www.spokanebikes.net
