It’s only February, so imagine my surprise at getting my first ‘Bike to Work Spokane’ email today. It used to be ‘Bike to Work Week,’ but organizers say Spokane’s biking community and events are just too big to fit into one week, so they’re designating all of May as ‘Spokane Bike Month.’
So what’s on the agenda for Bike Month this year? It’s still early, but already we know there will be a commute challenge, the local women’s bicycling group Belles and Baskets will host a couple rides, the Lilac City Century Ride will take place, a kickoff breakfast, there will be a ‘ride of silence’ (don’t have details on this but am assuming it’s for those folks we’ve lost recently in bicycling accidents), and an information fair, plus lots more. I’ll keep you updated as things develop, but wanted to remind you that riding season is right around the corner.
