Friday Harbor Bike Fest
Sat. Jun 1, 2019 10:00am
The upcoming Friday Harbor Bike Fest is the third annual bike ride sponsored by San Juan Lions Club. In the past this event was known as the Friday Harbor Bike-n-Brew. This year’s event is being held June 1st to coincide with the 20th annual Artist Studio Tour on San Juan Island. There will be numerous ride options, a 12 mile ride, a 20 mile ride as well as a metric century. Other choices include the option to take in the Artist Studio Tour (approx. 37 miles) by biking from studio to studio or just choosing your own course on our beautiful island backroads.
The fee for the rides has been simplified; $50.00 for single riders, $80.00 for couples and $100.00 for families ((immediate). Breakfast is available starting at 8:00:am from the local Cutthroat Pirates. The rides will start at 10:00 and finish at 4:00 pm at San Juan Island Brewing in Friday Harbor. There will be SAG stops in a couple of key locations along the routes staffed by Lions members and friends of biking. The above fee includes a BBQ meal (vegetarian options will also be available) featuring local BBQ aficionado Billy Grewohd, at the end of the rides.
For your enjoyment there will also be four hours of live music provided by local bands starting at 3:00 pm. Beer, wine and soft drinks will be available at an additional cost.
This event is a fundraiser for the local Lions club. Net proceeds support local needs in our community including , but not limited to, college scholarships for local students, vision and hearing needs and etc.
Come and enjoy San Juan Island with it’s fantastic views of the Salish Sea, sounding majestic mountains and lush farmland scenes and perhaps catch a glimpse of a fox or two or maybe even experience a whale sighting.
