Earth Day Market Ride, Coming April 19

Earth Day Market Ride: Saturday, April 19, 2014
(stay tuned here or on our Facebook page for last-minute details)

Meet neighbors, enjoy a Saturday bike ride into town and get a head start on your BCC miles while you're at it! The miles you ride this day can count as your first commute trip on your mileage log. The Earth Day Market Ride is also a great opportunity to build community and meet other riders in your neighborhood.

Volunteer leaders will lead groups of cyclists from their neighborhoods to Heritage Park Fountain, arriving at around 10:45am. (Coffee and pastries await, courtesy of Batdorf and Bronson, and San Francisco St Bakery). Meet your neighborhood Ride Leader at one of the neighborhood meeting points- meeting points shown below. You'll bike with your group down to the fountain (across from the Oyster House restaurant), following all rules of the road. After a welcome by Intercity Transit Authority Chair Karen Messmer and a group photo, we all proceed to the Olympia Farmers Market. Once we arrive, you can register for the Bicycle Commuter Contest, catch some great live music and enjoy the food and shopping at the Market!

We ride by the rules of the road. A bicycle is a vehicle on the road, and we'll be obeying all traffic signals even if it means spitting up the group. We can always regroup. Helmet and liability waiver required. Helmet and liability waiver are required.
