Several bike rides this weekend — Tweed Ride, Port of Seattle bike tour, Ballard rain garden tour

Say—The most dapper of Seattle’s citizenry will be in attendance for a celebration of the centennial of Seward Park!

You, fair Seattleite, are invited to don your finest tweed and join the noble faction Go Means Go for a grand display of velocipede gaiety!

Your fellow citizens will ride the finest boulevards in all of Seattle, dating back to the turn of the twentieth century!

The gathering begins in the eleventh hour of the fifth of June at Denny Park.

Port of Seattle Tour

If tweed ain’t your style, perhaps you prefer international trade and travel authorities. Well, you are in luck! The Port of Seattle is hosting a free bike ride from the Shilshole Bay Marina, across the Ballard Locks, through Interbay along the Elliott Bay Trail to Pier 66 downtown.

From the Port:

Registration opens at 10:30 a.m. and the event wraps up at 4:00 p.m. Start early or simply take your time and enjoy the ride. You are encouraged to stop at Port properties along the route and experience some “Then and Now” photo posters highlighting the importance of the Port and the changes over the past 100 years.

And, if neither of these rides suits your fancy, People for Puget Sound is hosting a bike tour of Ballard’s rain gardens June 4. Ride starts 10 a.m. at Bergen Place Park (5420 22nd Ave. NW). My Ballard has the details.
