Bike events are roaring back to life in Seattle at a level not seen since 2019. Cascade Bicycle Club’s Bike Month calendar is packed, as is the Seattle Bike Blog Events Calendar. But that’s not all. After a two-year hiatus, Everyday Rides is relaunching its local bike fun calendar, and is hosting a relaunch meetup 6 p.m. tonight (5/4) at Good Weather Bicycle & Cafe on Capitol Hill.
“The pandemic threw everything for a loop, but the social cycling scene in Seattle is 🔥 right now and I’m super stoked for Summer,” wrote Everyday Rides creator Zach Hale in an email announcing the relaunch effort. “Come support Good Weather, have a drink, and chat about ideas for rides and events y’all would like to do this year. I’ll bring my bag of maps for folks to use and be available to help with ride planning and ideas for anyone looking for help making their ride dreams come true. Let’s fill the calendar this summer!”
Everyday Rides is not just a calendar, it’s also a tool to collect RSVPs and organize a ride group. A newly-added groups feature allows people to create and join private groups, which can post public events as well as events only visible to other members of the group. It can also host group conversations, so it can be a way to organize events and stay in touch. With more and more people ditching Facebook, Everyday Rides could be a more widely accessible home for your bike event listings.
