Below are some events to get you rolling.


9th Annual Tacoma Bike Swap

April 29 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Tacoma Bike Swap is an annual event hosted every April. This exciting community event is free to attend and is great for people who are looking to buy or sell bikes and bike-related accessories. The Bike Swap gets over 1,000 attendees most years. At the Bike Swap you can meet other people who enjoy bicycling and learn about great places to ride. Past years have also given attendees the opportunity to practice putting your bike on the bus, let kids practice riding in a bicycle rodeo, screen printing items from home with Stadium High School students, and more. Make sure you mark this event for next April! Want to volunteer? Sign up here: bit.ly/BikeSwapVolunteer

Bikes and Bagels Presented by Commute Seattle

May 12 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am

It is that time of year! The sun is making an appearance, and the days are getting longer. The wet weather is at least getting warmer, which means it’s time to tune up your bike and get on it.

May 12th is the 7th Annual Bikes and Bagels celebration and this year we will be in two locations.

Join Commute Seattle celebrating biking in the city! Swing by on bike or on foot and celebrate your active commute with a bagel and coffee on your way to the office.

Grab a goody from Eltana Bagels, Grand Central Bakery and Conduit Coffee. Get a quick tune up from Velo Bike Shop or Mobile Bicycle Rescue. Enter to win raffle prizes like a bike light, gear or gift certificate. Grab some info and swag from sponsors like PRO Sports Club, Cascade Bicycle Club, The Seattle Department of Transportation and The Downtown Seattle Association and more!
