The Ballard Bike Street Party is today (Thursday) on both Ballard Ave and 22nd Ave NW from the bell tower to Market St.
It’s one part Cascade Bicycle Club party and one part Seattle Summer Streets open streets event. There’s live music, a bicycle fashion show (hosted by SBB sponsor Hub & Bespoke!), a kids bike rodeo and parade, and a BMX bike jump show.
And, of course, beer! It’s the final Bike Happy Hour of Bike Month. If you want to ride to the party in bike nerd style, Cascade will host a policy ride from downtown to Ballard via Westlake. Meet at McGraw Square at 4:30 p.m.
