It's Bike Month!

May is National Bike Month, and in the Puget Sound we call it Bike Everywhere Month. Do your part (along with Everett and Mukilteo mayors) by joining the Bike Everywhere Challenge - look for a BIKES or Snohomish County team or "league."

Bike Day Stations, 6-9 a.m. May 18: Get up early to stop by a Celebration Station on your way to work or activities. They’ll have coffee, snacks and goodies for you. B.I.K.E.S. will have a table at Everett Station and we still need a few volunteers to help. Contact Kristin, bikenbus@gmail.com

Benefit Concert 5-9 p.m. May 18: Celebrate Bike Everywhere Day with eclectic music and some bike-themed raffle baskets in support of Sharing Wheels Community Bike Shop @ Cafe Zippy in Everett.

Men in Lycra Movie June 7

BIKES club is hosting a public showing of MAMIL (Middle-Aged Men in Lycra) in Everett on June 7. We need at least 50 tickets sold in advance (otherwise, you won't be charged). 5% of ticket costs will go to the club, but that's just a bonus for a fun night out at the movies with your bike friends. 


Club Elections

We have a new slate of officers who have stepped up to the lead the club. Please welcome them and know that everyone has a part in making BIKES a friendly, active, safe, and engaging club. President: Rick Proctor. Vice President: Jim Bloss. Secretary: Kathy Riddle. Treasurer: Debby Grant.

The next club meeting will be in September. Until then, see you on a bike ride!
