Bike to McGraw Square tomorrow (Friday) morning between 7 and 9 a.m., and you’ll get free coffee, a bagel and probably some swag.

Commute Seattle hosts the event every year, though I feel like we got fried chicken one year (or was that a dream?).

Anyway, here are more details from Commute Seattle:

In celebration of National Bike Everywhere Month, Commute Seattle is hosting its 6th annual Bikes & Bagels event from 7-9 a.m. on Friday, May 13 in McGraw Square (Fifth Avenue and Stewart St in Downtown Seattle). Bike commuters are encouraged to stop by for free Caffe Vita coffee, wood-fired bagels from Eltana, free bike tune-ups and raffle prizes. We will be joined by our partners at Seattle Department of Transportation, Pronto Bikeshare, Velo Bike Shop, Zipcar Seattle, and volunteers from Cascade Bicycle Club.

Commute Seattle has partnered with Seattle Met to offer attendees the opportunity to pose with their friends and colleagues in our onsite photo booth. Photos will be featured in The Met Pages July Issue and online.

“Bike month is going great so far. The weather is nice and the Alaskan Way Viaduct closure helped to encouraged more riders to join in,” said Commute Seattle Executive Director Jessica Szelag. “Bikes & Bagels is a great way to thank people for choosing an active and carbon free way to get to work each day.”

    There was some fried chicken back when Via6 was promoting itself (maybe before it was done being constructed), provided by Skillet’s truck. I think it was in the winter even! Or at least, I have a picture of myself there on a rainy day wearing a lot of layers.

    SDOT will be at the thing tomorrow? If anybody is stopping by ask about the rollback of the downtown bike lane plans.
