Riding my electric cargo bike is my favorite thing

Paul Tolmé

  • We have a full calendar of fun rides, events, classes and celebrations throughout May in recognition of Bike Everywhere Month.
  • Donuts, Sounders games, bike demos, book presentations, breweries, and more!

Priority Current e-bike

May is Bike Everywhere Month and we’ve filled the calendar with opportunities for you to come ride with us–and celebrate the joy of bicycling. 

Registration for our annual Seattle Bike n Brews closes at midnight tonight (Thursday, May 4) so register now and check out the other great bike events planned throughout the month. 

Free Priority Bicycles Demo, May 6

Shopping for a new bike? Test ride some commuter, electric, cargo, and adventure bikes from Priority Bicycles at the Cascade Bicycle Club offices in Magnuson Park (map and directions) on Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. The event is free!

Priority 600

Priority specializes in low-maintenance belt drive bikes and e-bikes with advanced drivetrains that are perfect for foul Northwestern weather. Instead of chains and derailleurs, Priority Bicycles have grease-free Gates Carbon Drive belts paired with Pinion gearboxes, and Shimano Alfine or Enviolo internal hubs. No more greasy hands or rusty chains!

Priority will have the following bikes available: the Current e-bike, the 600 with a Pinion gearbox, the 600X designed in collaboration with adventurer Ryan Van Duzer, the Continuum with an Enviolo hub, the Apollo gravel bike with a Shimano Alfine 11-speed shifter, and the Sauce retro trail crusher.

Adventure Biking Presentation with Ryan Van Duzer, May 6

Adventure bicyclist Ryan Van Duzer has the ultimate dream job. He travels the country and the world exploring by bicycle, meeting people, and sharing his adventures on Youtube. Some of his videos have more than a million views. Check out his latest video of bicycling Rwanda’s Congo Nile Trail.
