Labor Day may be approaching, but biking season is far from over! These upcoming rides support the Bicycle Alliance’s work to grow safe, enjoyable bicycling in communities across the state:
Camp Korey’s Camp Challenge Ride on September 8 is a new ride. With a start and end in Carnation, this ride takes you through scenic Snoqualmie Valley on a 25- or 64-mile loop. This ride is a fundraiser for Camp Korey, a program that serves children with serious and life-altering medical conditions. There is a gourmet BBQ at the end of the ride.
Ride the South Sound, also on September 8, is a new event organized by Capital Bicycling Club. Routes vary from family-friendly to challenging. This ride offers spectacular views of south Puget Sound, the farmlands and forests surrounding Olympia.
Cycle the WAVE returns on September 16. This all women’s non-competitive ride has something for all levels of riders, and benefits domestic violence programs. The ride starts and ends at Issaquah High School.
