what about the tour de lacs?


Glad you brought that up. It's a fantastic ride and a great event. Nothing showcases the beauty of our region better, however only a small percentage of the route occurs within the city of Spokane or on the city's streets.

Well Mr/Mrs Metro: it's xmass time in March. Or rather, Sept. The First Annual SpokeFest is in the works as we speak. The plan as I know it right now:
Date: Sept 7th
Place: riverfront park.
Plan: a 1-2 mile family loop through the city (the organizers are working with the city to close specific streets in teh core) and a 20+ mile loop through the city and out to 7mile and back. booths; bike expo/swap; etc.
the hope/plan/idea is to make this an annual event.


There was also an event called "Ride the Bridges" or something similar. It started in the slighlty seedy High Bridge Park, and took riders across bridges in Spokane. I think that most of the ride was on the Centennial trail though, rather than on city streets.

What about International Bike Naked Day?


"What about International Bike Naked Day?"

Ha. Awesome. Nothing would bring drivers and cyclists closer together.
