In late January I wrote a post inviting your participation in the University of Washington’s Bicycle Urbanism Symposium. Several months have passed and now we are just two weeks from the event. We have a fantastic group of presenters and participants lined up, including folks from all over the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, China, Australia, The Netherlands, Ireland and more. While the presenters are already arranged it is not too late for you to attend. Registration is still open here.
In addition to the symposium itself there are a number of interesting bicycling events around the Summer Solstice.
There is a Disaster Relief Trial on Friday afternoon which promises the fun of a scavenger hunt on laden cargo bikes.
On Saturday the 22nd of June is the famous Fremont Solstice Parade including body painted bicycle riders. Come and watch or participate.
On Saturday night there is an all night bicycle scavenger hunt, Nine to Five, which is put on by Go Means Go. Nine to Five is a highly entertaining event which I participated in last year and wrote about here. You can register for the event here.
The Kickoff Reception is June 19th from 6-9PM in Gould Hall. The event is open to the public and tickets are $20 for those not registered for the Symposium. Even if you can’t attend the entire symposium come by the reception on Wednesday evening to chat with the international entourage of bike people and have a drink and some snacks.
