Commute of the Century Changing A Little This Year

The City of Spokane's "Commute of the Century" event is changing a little this year for Bike Month. The 2014 Commute of the Century was focused on riding Spokane's bicycle infrastructure and gathering public feedback on it.

The 2015 event will still include group rides during Bike to Work Week and will offer a full 100-mile “century” route, but the focus will be on neighborhood connections. The group rides will range from five to seven miles and will showcase potential “greenways” – neighborhood streets that prioritize walking and biking for all ages and abilities.

Here's more on the changes and this year's goals.
