When I say ‘Bike Everywhere Month,’ I mean EVERYWHERE

Photo of people with bike checking in with people running the long and busy bike corral area.
The bike corral at the Sounders game last weekend was packed.

The long winter finally ended recently in Seattle, just in time for the year’s first heat wave. The sun is out, so biking energy is endless. Seattleites in sunlight are like sharks: they must keep biking in order to breathe.

Bike Everywhere Month is well underway, and the number of events is not slowing down. For example, Commute Seattle will convene a bunch of local agencies and organizations for Spin into Bike Month 4–6 p.m. today (May 11) on the east side of Sam Smith Park along the I-90 Trail. So perhaps your evening needs to take a little detour. What else are you going to do? Bike Happy Hour isn’t until 6 p.m. at Gas Works, so you can do both. You can sleep when it’s October.

Speaking of Commute Seattle, Tara Peters recently compiled a helpful list of local “Cycling Groups for Shared Identities” complete with info on how to join up.
