Get yer bike on!
Here’s a look at some awesome bikey stuff happening this weekend. Did I miss anything? Let us know in the comments below. And, of course, remember that anyone can add events to our calendar. Just follow the instructions at the top of the page.
5th Annual Girls of Summer All Girl Alley Cat
Menstrual Monday is proud to announce the FIFTH (holy crap 5 years!!!!) ANNUAL ALL-Girl Alley Cat, Girls of Summer! If this race were a kid, we’d be sending it off to kindergarten.
Join us for another year of miles, smiles, sweat, and laughter. Last year an amazing group of 65 women came together to celebrate bikes, the city, and each other. We will have prizes in fun and creative categories to encourage new or non-competitive riders (a MOUNTAIN of prizes). Also to encourage women of all ages to race and in the tradition of road racing we will have a Master’s category. That means the first person age 35+ will get a sweet prize.
Register at the Gas Works Park starting at 2pm and race at 3pm sharp. Things to bring: map of Seattle, a lock, a pen, and of course a helmet.
After party starting around 6pm at the Boxcar Ale House. We will have $2 PBR specials for the ladies and their supporters! After the afterparty and awards stick around for Boxcar’s Karaoke.
Lake to Lake Bike Ride
Explore Bellevue’s hidden treasures by bike on the Lake to Lake Bike Ride on June 13, 2015. Bring the whole family to this enjoyable, non-competitive ride benefitting the City of Bellevue’s youth camp scholarship fund. View 2015 video about the ride.
Lake Hills Community Park, 1200 164th Ave. SE (164th Avenue Southeast and Southeast 16th Street).
Start area opens 9-10 a.m. The course will be marked and well-supported by staff and volunteers.
There are two routes — the mostly flat, nine-mile Greenbelt Loop and the more challenging, 22-mile Lake Loop with significant elevation gain. Both routes are approximately 80 percent paved road and 20 percent small gravel.
Cascade Bicycle Club’s 45th Birthday Party
Many of you joined us last fall for the grand opening of your Cascade Bicycling Center, and now we are thrilled to invite you to celebrate our 45th Birthday and celebrate the future of bicycling in our region.
Join local elected officials, Cascade staff and your friends, as we launch our Capital Campaign for the expansion of your Cascade Bicycling Center!
In our earliest planning conversations for the center, we heard our community loud and clear. We listened to the needs of those who have made us who we are today—our volunteers, members, donors and partnering organizations. The next part of the project is our answer to what you have told us: bicycling needs to be more accessible to the community at large.
With your support, we will transform your Center into a world-class destination for bicyclists of all ages. Planning is underway and will include the construction of three key additions: a Welcome Pavilion, Cascade Traffic Gardens and Fix-It Garage.
We cannot complete this project without your support and partnership.
Join us Saturday, June 13, from 10 a.m. to noon, for refreshments and a brief presentation about what is coming next at your Cascade Bicycling Center.
