Bike Everywhere Day is May 17th

May is bike everywhere month and Friday May 17th(Syttende Mai!) is bike everywhere day! Our Idle Free Ballard lead Polly will be tabling with our community partners Ballard-Fremont Greenways at their Celebration Station from 6:30am-9am located at NW 53rd St and 11th Ave NW. So bike by on your way to everywhere!

There will be snacks, coffee and donuts donated by Top Pot (starting at 7:15am), swag from local Ballard Businesses, and you can also enter a drawing for some great prizes. Ballard-Fremont Greenways will also be hosting a happy hour at Urban Family Brewing at 5pm – everyone is welcome! Help us celebrate recent wins in road safety!

Don’t own a bike? Our friends at Electric & Folding Bikes NW have rental options. Please practice safe biking practices including wearing a helmet. You can get a free helmet at the City’s customer service center in Ballard(next to the library). Get more info on SDOTs free adult helmet program by clicking here. Biking is a great way to stay healthy, eco-friendly commute, and enjoy our beautiful parks & trails. Join the fun!
