Some COVID-19 precautions below will temporarily override other information on these web pages.


Update for February 15th, 2021:  Washington state approved new Outdoor Recreation COVID-19 Requirements on January 11th, 2021 that set requirements for outdoor activities such as bicycle club rides.  BIKES Club has set a club limit of 8 maximum (or less) riders per group including the Ride Leader.

  • BIKES Club rides are temporarily for BIKES Club members only.
  • Rides on the Calendar page will be visible for the Public to see our activities and perhaps join.
  • All rides require online registration as described in the ride posting.

  • BIKES Club rides are temporarily for BIKES Club members only.
  • The Calendar will only be visible to BIKES members who are logged in.
  • All rides are RSVP to help ensure only 5 per ride group, including the Ride Leader.
  • Closed: most park restrooms, water fountains and parking at some parks.
  • Food establishments can reopen at reduced seating capacity, lines are likely.


Update for June 3, 2020:  The BIKES Club Board of Directors has approved the precautions below that we will use as we shift into Phase 2 of "Safe Start Washington: A Phased Approach to Recovery".
