Today is Bike to Work Day. Cascade Bicycle Club, Swedish Cherry Hill, the Bush School and Cafe Weekend are all hosting Commute Stations, just a few of many such stations all over the city (see map below). Each station is different, but expect lots of free granola bars, coffee and encouraging smiles.
The centerpiece event of the day is a morning ride from KEXP’s Dexter and Denny studio to City Hall for a rally. The ride leaves KEXP at 7:45 a.m., and the rally starts at City Hall at 8.
