It's All Bikes, All The Time At Spoke-Ed Day

Do you think about riding your bike a lot but don't actually do it? Do you have good intentions but fall short when it comes to bicycling? Well, REI's third annual Spoke-Ed Day is coming and it's a great opportunity to be inspired, educated and initiated into cycling organizations and opportunities for riders of all interests and skill levels.

The weekend of Sept. 8 and 9 is a celebration of all things cycling at Spokane's REI store. There are lots of great groups signed up to tune up your bike, help you choose a bike that fits you, recommend good places to ride based on your skill level, and find new ways to involve your family in Spokane's cycling community.
This is a free event so bring your bike and your questions.
Organizations participating include Riverside State Park, Evergreen East cycling club, Women on Wheels, Spokane Parks & Rec, SpokeFest, Cycle for Life, Centennial Trail (Spokane and Northern Idaho), Belles & Baskets, Bicycle Alliance of Washington, Spokane Bike Club, Hiawatha Trail, Yakima, Camelbak, Spokane Bike Swap, Purple Ride Spoke-d’Alene, and the Beacon Hill Trail folks.
