You can ride your bike alongside Everett Mayor Stephanson, get some free stuff and have your bike checked over this Friday as Everett marks Bike to Work day. Here’s the full rundown of events from the city…
May is National Bike Month and we invite you to stop by the Celebration Station at Everett Station (3201 Smith Ave., Everett) on Friday, May 17 to celebrate F5 Bike to Work Day.
From 5 – 9 a.m., Celebration Station staff will welcome cyclists, with complimentary refreshments, promotional giveaways and a free bicycle safety check available to all riders. Cyclists can pick up a current Snohomish County Bicycling and Trail Map, along with maps and information for cycling in other Pacific Northwest cities and regions.
Join Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson on the Celebration Ride, a short, energizing ride from the Snohomish County Courthouse to Everett Station. Departing from the plaza located at the corner of Wall St. and Oakes Ave. at 7:30 a.m., the ride will begin with a moment of silence in remembrance of City Councilman Drew Nielsen, who passed away in 2012. All participants in the Celebration Ride will receive a unique Bike to Work Day item.
