Seattle Queer History Bike Tour

Sunday, June 12, 2022, 12:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. 

In partnership with The Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) and Cascade Bicycle Club, Certified Ride Leader and Historian Bob Svercl will lead a group of riders on a 5.6-mile bike tour from Capitol Hill through Pioneer Square to MoPOP. The ride will stop at historic and iconic sites around Seattle while Bob shares stories about Seattle’s LGBTQIA+ history. Registrants will get a promo code for two free tickets to MoPOP, valid through Labor Day.

Folks who want to continue their exploration of LGBTQIA+ stories and culture can leave their bike at the bike valet and head inside to see exhibits at MoPOP.

Meet at Volunteer Park from noon to 1 p.m. for bike decorating and pre-ride socializing. Bike decoration materials, snacks, and drinks will be provided by MoPOP.

At 1 p.m., the group will gather and head out on a rain or shine, no-drop, casual bike and e-bike friendly ride, with support from a ride leader and a sweep bringing up the rear. The ride will wrap up at the MoPOP plaza with trivia and prizes. Prizes include a MoPOP membership!
