April is Earth Month and April 22 marks the 45th anniversary of Earth Day. Riding your bike is a great way to honor and celebrate our planet. Here’s a sampling of some bike-related Earth Day and Earth Month activities:
April 18 – Earth Day Market Ride in Olympia. Organized by the Thurston County Bicycle Commuter Contest crew, this ride has multiple start points. Find one near you and join others for a bike ride to the Olympia Farmers Market. More details can be found on the BCC blog.
April 20 – Join Washington Bikes for Earth Week at the Latona Pub in Seattle. We’ll be on hand to share the bike love and hoist a pint of Hales beer. A portion of the proceeds will benefit our work to grow bicycling.
April 22 – Commuter Bike Train: Geographical Tour of Tacoma. Learn about the earth on this bike ride. Although not billed as an Earth Day event, this bike ride will offer Tacoma cyclists a peek at the city’s geology and geography.
April 22 – Celebrate Earth Day with a bike ride at your favorite Washington State Park! Entrance to state parks will be free on Earth Day.
