Everyone, the WORST THING IMAGINABLE has happened.
Tonight, there are two different bike events with Schooner Exact beer and great bike advocacy folks happening AT THE SAME TIME. It’s not fair. Clearly a #SeattleBikeMonthProblem
Cascade Bicycle Club is hosting a policy ride and Bike Happy Hour every Thursday during May. Each ride starts at 4:30 and tours a different part of the city so people can discuss the successes and issues with biking in each area. The rides end at a bar or brewery for a Bike Happy Hour, starting at 5:30.
The rides kick off today with an E Marginal Way policy ride that meets in Occidental Park and ends at Schooner Exact in Sodo.
Yes, 5:30 is the same time as the Cycling Sojourner book release party at Washington Bikes in Pioneer Square. They will also celebrate the release of Ale-Liance, an annual Schooner Exact IPA batch that supports WA Bikes.
But I guess I had better get used to conflicting fun bike events this month. With 80+ May bike events on our events calendar, there’s just going to be some overlap. And having too many bikey things happening sure is a great problem to have.
