The Edmonds bike commuter station is from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. at Copper Pot Indian Bar & Grill, 102 Main St., near the bus, train and ferry transit hubs.
Jan Niemi of Edmonds Bicycle Advocacy Group said any bike will do.
“Last year, one lady found a bike in her garage that was dirty and dusty with a flat tire. She dusted it off, pumped it up, took the ferry across to Edmonds and went to her job in Lynnwood,” Niemi said.
“Another one came on a child's bike. It was a dad riding a purple-and-pink bike.”
“It's always kind of entertaining,” Niemi said. “Some get dressed up in zany costumes.”
A celebration ride begins at 7:30 a.m. at the PCC parking lot, 9803 Edmonds Way. For more information, got to www.edmondsbicyclegroup.org.
