I t's Bike Month -- and what better way to celebrate than by supporting Cascade's efforts to transform the Puget Sound community into a community that bicycles?

F5 Bike to Work Day is May 20—this Friday! If you’re reading this blog, we hope you’re planning on riding. If you live too far to bike the whole way, take the bus or drive for part of it and ride the rest, or bus into work and ride home. Even if you don’t bike to work for another 364 days, bike to work on May 20. Here's a schedule of what's in store: * Commute stations , 6 – 9 a.m. * Mayor’s Ride , 7:15 – 7:45 a.m. * F5 Bike to Work Day Rally at City Hall , 7:30 – 8:30 a.m. * F5 Bike to Work Day After Party Party in Ballard, 4 – 7 p.m. You know why you bike: for fun, for exercise, for the environment or because one day your car broke down and you’ve never looked back. But why bike on F5 Bike to Work Day?
