Bring a friend on F5 Bike To Work Day this Friday, May 18

F5 Bike to Work Day is Friday, May 18, and Cascade has planned a full program of events designed to support and celebrate bicycling as transportation. Whether you'll be riding for the first time or the 3,000th, there is absolutely no better day to commute by bike than this Friday. Invite a friend and join us!

The off-the-charts good times begin early with more than 60 commute stations from 6-9 a.m., where bike-friendly local organizations and bike shops will be greeting riders and handing out goodies.

Get jazzed at KEXP radio station with a live outdoor  broadcast followed by a 7:45 a.m. ride with Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn and other elected officials to the Rally at Seattle City Hall.

After work, stop by the Ballard Street Party from 4-7 p.m. in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood and enjoy live music, bike polo, test rides and more.

New this year, MOHAI will be displaying an antique penny-farthing bicycle, Theo Chocolates will be sampling their new World Bicycle Relief Bars, and we’ll be inviting you to strut your stuff in our new “Share Your Style” Bike Fashion Show. You can also rest your tired legs and tour the Ballard rain gardens and Ballard’s proposed Greenway with the fine folks at Seattle Pedi-Cab.

Here's the full schedule:

You know why you ride--for your health, for your wallet, for the environment, or for the simple joy of getting around on two wheels--so why not grab a friend or co-worker to join in on the fun?

Check our fun-filled schedule of events, bring a friend, and let's ride!
