Happy Bike Month! + Cascade’s calendar of events

Happy Bike Month, everyone!

Bike Everywhere Day 2022 is May 20, but there are also bikey events throughout May to help encourage more people to bike or to simply celebrate how great it is to bike around this beautiful place. This is the first full-on Bike Month since 2019, as the pandemic cancelled most Bike Month events in 2020 and 2021. So get out there, meet people and show your support for local bike events.

You can find more events (or create your own) on the Seattle Bike Blog Events Calendar.
