Where to celebrate Bike Everywhere Day in Snohomish County

April showers bring May flowers — in the form of spinning bicycle spokes.

May is National Bike Month.

In much of Snohomish County, Cascade Bicycle Club is organizing Bike Everywhere Day activities on Friday. It’s also known as Bike to Work Day.

“Celebration stations” will greet cyclists at Everett Station, Boeing Everett, at Beverly Park Road and Commando Road near Paine Field Community Park, on the Interurban Trail near Martha Lake, at the Lynnwood Transit Center, on the Edmonds waterfront, along the North Creek Trail in Bothell, the University of Washington Bothell campus, and along the Centennial Trail behind the Snohomish Library.

Community Transit will host four of the celebration stations, where staff will unveil a new 2017 Snohomish County Bike Map. There also will be free souvenirs, snacks and drinks, and drawings for prizes. Mechanics can check out your bike for you, too.

Find more details at www.cascade.org/celebration-stations.

Meanwhile, Washington Bikes offers the Bike Everywhere Challenge, a team effort that awards prizes for skipping the car and hopping on a bicycle instead. The goal is motivation. In fact, new riders score double points for their teams — so there may be time for you to catch up to the rest of the field. Find out more at www.lovetoride.net.

If you want a more low-key start to cycling, you can take your first group ride free with the BIKES Club of Snohomish County. Find a list of club rides at www.bikesclub.org/clubrides.
