It may be football season and the kids are back in school, but keep your bike handy for some weekend riding! These upcoming bike rides support our statewide bike advocacy and education efforts:
This Sunday is the 6th Annual Cycle the WAVE. This women-only bike ride offers a choice of four fun routes that start/end at Issaquah High School, and puts on a festive finish line reception. Look for our booth at the finish line!
Get ready for some heat on September 21 with the 1st Annual Blazing Saddles Bike Ride! Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Colville, this fully supported ride offers century, metric century and 40-mile course options, plus a Family Fun Ride. Riders will get views of Columbia River/Lake Roosevelt as they pedal through the woodlands and agricultural areas of rural northeast Washington. And if the ride doesn’t heat you up enough, sample the entries at the Northwest International Chili Cook-off. Your ride wristband is your admission to this event.
The fun continues into October when the Town of La Conner presents the Boneshaker Bicycle Festival on October 26. This family-friendly, Halloween inspired event is a celebration of all things bicycle. Seven self-guided routes offer Cascade views as you pedal through the scenic Skagit Valley. The festival also includes entertainment, guest speakers, bike rodeo, bike decorating and other crazy contests.
