Bike to Work Day
Tomorrow, Friday, May 16th is Bike to Work Day, part of Bike Month, sponsored by Cascade Bicycle Club. Here is a link to some of the great events that are still scheduled.
We are so excited to be participating again this year with not one, but two commuter stations! Look for the Lake Forest Park commuter station on the Burke Gilman Trail at Ballinger and Bothell. The Ravenna station will be right outside the store at 65th and 20th NE.
We'll be giving away some great bike swag including tire levers, seat covers, and coupons for Third Place and Performance Bicycle .
Hop on your bike and head over to one of our stations we'll be there from 6:00-9:00AM. Hope to see you bright and early tomorrow morning!
Some of our awesome swag!
And one of our resident cyclists suggests this bike book:
In the City of Bikes: The Story of the Amsterdam Cyclist by Pete Jordan
This lighthearted yet thorough look at cycling in Amsterdam strikes the perfect balance between cultural history and memoir. The author's enthusiasm for his topic shines as he explores his new home's relationship with the bicycle, from 1890s high-wheelers bumping over cobblestones, through the Nazi occupation, and into the modern day. Wonderful! - Emily A.
