Bike Everywhere Month 2021

 

Welcome to the hub for the Bike Everywhere Month presented by Cascade Bicycle Club!

What is Bike Month?

Bike Everywhere Month is a time to support, encourage, and celebrate all things bicycling. Join us and the League of American Bicyclistsin proving that no one celebrates pedal power like Washington. Get ready for warm-weather riding with a host of virtual events and some in-person activities.

  • Bike Everywhere Day is May 21, 2021. Keep scrolling to find a celebration station near you.
  • The Bike Everywhere Challenge runs the whole month of May. Form a team and earn points while you ride. 
  • Cascade will be hosting virtual classes, seminars, and workshops about how to get rolling.  Take a look at our calender for details.

The best way to celebrate Bike Everywhere Month is simply to get on a bike: ride to work, ride to the grocery store or just ride for the sheer joy of being outside and soaking in the sun after a long winter.

Bike Everywhere Day

An all-day celebration on May 21, 2021!

To build a network of support and fun for the thousands of cyclists on Bike Everywhere Day, Cascade Bicycle Club and our local partners host dozens of celebration stations along major bike routes in the region. We've provided our station hosts with suggestions on how to host no-contact stations and we encourage everyone to follow local public health guidance.

Stop by and:

  • Pick up a free souvenir (at select stations)
  • Join Cascade Bicycle Club by signing up for a membership (Fremont area Station only).
  • Take a selfie and share it on social media with the hashtag #WABikeEverywhere
  • Enjoy socially distanced waves and smiles!
