Love bikes? You're in the right place. This year's Seattle Bicycle Expo will feature more than 175 vendors showing off the latest and greatest in bikes, accessories and more. Plus, Expo has three stages of how-to presentations, panels and expert demos. Whether you're looking to learn how to go car-free, meet your favorite authors, watch graceful bicycle acrobats or even make some pedal-powered art, Expo has something for everyone.

Our five-mile route will utilize the new temporary Mercer walk/bike path under Aurora, cut through the Seattle Center, and use the West Thomas Street Overpass to get to the beautiful Elliott Bay Trail.

We're setting out on the early side to arrive in time for the panel, Cycling wisdom by women, for women:
Featuring: Kari Studley, P.T., Jan Acuff and Windsor Lewis, hosted by Gina Kavesh
11:15 a.m.-12:15 p.m.

Calling all ladies! This presentation is specifically geared toward answering all things bike riding that might be intimidating to ask at a group ride or bike shop. Topics include:

  • What parts of a bike can be adapted to insure a better/more comfortable fit?
  • Why cycling is more fun with friends and how/where to find other women to ride with.
  • Saddles/Shorts and why we love to hate them and what can we do to not hate them.
  • How to overcome internal fears that may keep you off your bike or intimidated by riding alone.
  • And lot's more!

Please bring every question you have that you've always wanted to ask an experienced female cyclist. This talk will feature four female expert guests from the local bicycle community, including Gina Kavesh.

Note: you don't have to attend Bike Expo to join the ride! But our one-way ride will end at the bike valet booth outside the Bike Expo entrance.

See the Cascade Bicycle Club Seattle Bike Expo webpage for ticket price information. There's also a two tickets for $9 deal on livingsocial.
