Now that you’re in good riding shape from participating in your local Bike to Work events and the National Bike Challenge, it’s time to sign up for some June bike rides! There are some wonderful June rides that support the Bicycle Alliance’s efforts to grow bicycling statewide.
You’ll have an opportunity to ride with US National Team rider Logan Owen or Bremerton Mayor Patty Lent on Life Cyle – Bremerton ride on June 2. The ride starts and finishes at Rotary Evergreen Park on the city’s waterfront–easily accessed by the Seattle-Bremerton ferry. The event includes a kid’s bike rodeo and an after-ride meal.

The Tacoma Wheelmen’s Peninsula Metric Century on June 3 also showcases the beauty of the Kitsap Peninsula. This challenging ride offers panoramic waterfront views, roads through the rural countryside, lots of rolling hills, and dessert at the finish line.
The Ann Weatherill Cycling Classic on June 16 is presented by the Wheatland Wheelers Cycling Club. This eastern Washington ride highlights the beauty of the Walla Walla Valley, and treats riders to views of the Blue Mountains, wheat fields, and Walla Walla vineyards. Entry includes a post-ride lunch.
Capital Bicycling Club’s Two County Double Metric Century on June 24 takes riders on the less traveled roads of Lewis and Thurston Counties. This ride offers five scenic routes ranging from 20 to 126 miles.
Over twenty event rides support growing bicycling statewide with a contribution to Washington Bikes. View our Ride Calendar for a complete listing.
