Bike Month In Bellevue

Bike month is on its way to Bellevue and there are a ton of fun ways to get inspired and get involved. Whether you’re a beginner or already live in your spandex, Bike Month events are a great way to network and explore your biking options!

To start things off, consider participating in the Bike Everywhere Challenge! It’s a fun, free, online trip-tracking contest where you challenge yourself and others to ride as much as possible in the month of May. Join a team or ride solo and see how far and often you can bike through Bike Month. Learn more about the challenge and register.

If you’re new to biking or need a few refreshers, head over to Choose Your Way Bellevue’s Intro to Urban Cycling. This event will be led by a Cascade Ride Leader who will be passing on words of wisdom from the rules of the road to how to look cool and stay safe while biking. As if that wasn’t incentive enough, there will be free pizza! Just don’t try to eat it while riding… April 19, 12-1 p.m. Bellevue City Hall room 1E-112.

After you’ve become acquainted with urban cycling make your way to Eastside Packet Pickup and Captain’s Party at Geaux Brewing. This is where you’ll start your Bike Month Challenge with Cascade Bicycle Club- a wealth of information for bikers! There will be prizes, free minor tune-ups from Velofix, food for purchase from Bread and Circuses and info for riding throughout the Eastside. April 21, 3:30-7 p.m.

Now that you’ll be up to speed, stop by the Bike Everywhere Day stations at Bellevue Transit Center and the I-90 trail at Enatai Park for a morning chat and fuel up with other bikers. There will be bike swag, Starbuck’s coffee, snacks from Whole Foods, activities, and Gregg’s will be offering minor tune-ups! May 20, 6-9 a.m.

To cement biking into your future and the future of downtown Bellevue, join the Cascade Bicycle Club Policy Ride for a 5-mile lunchtime loop to explore potential bike routes as part of the Pedestrian and Bicycle Implementation Initiative. May 25, 12-1 p.m., start at Bellevue City Hall.
