Weekend Guide: Alki Summer Streets, Bike to Farmer’s Market Day + 2 BTWD after parties

Bike Month is barely half over, and the number of bike events going on show no signs of slowing down.

Here’s just a sample of some things to do this weekend, from our Events Calendar:

Alki Summer Streets

summer_alki_clip_image001While not specifically a bike event, you gotta love any open streets event where you can hang out and play freely and without traffic.

Alki Ave SW will close to traffic at 9 a.m. for the West Seattle 5K run. The street fair starts at 11 a.m. and goes until 5 p.m.

Here’s how SDOT describes it. Do you need any more convincing that this?

This free event opens the city’s largest public space – its streets – so people can walk, bike, roll, run, skip and shop – without having to watch out for cars!


The Alki Beach Creeps Bicycle Club wants you to ride and party with us again on Alki Car Free Day. This is our second year throwing this parade and party celebrating freedom in the streets. The parade will start at 1:00pm, on the corner of 63rd and Alki Ave, please wear a costume. All ages are welcomed to join us. The parade will travel to the Don Armeni boat launch on Harbor Ave, then loop back around to the 2600 block of Alki Ave for the street party. This year we have put together a skidding competition. Complete with 1st and 2nd prizes from El Chupacabra for longest skid marks (on the concrete). Two DJs, spinning actual records. A live hip hop show. Buckets of sidewalk chalk. Please join us!

 Bike to Work Day After Parties

When you get off work today (Friday), you’ll have two different Bike to Work Day after parties to hit up.

The official after party at Via6, 4:30 – 6:30.

Timbuk2’s Bike to Work Day birthday bash, 6 – 9.

Bike to Farmer’s Market Day


Bike to the Ballard Farmers Market and stop by the Cascade booth to receive a free tote bag (while supplies last) and get your picture taken to enter our photo contest!

We’ll be taking photos of cyclists and will post them on the Bike Month Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CascadeBikeMonth.

Folks will win prizes for Most Creative Produce Transport, Largest Group Biking to Market Together, and more.

See you there!
