Biking event attracts about 100 riders
June 8, 2010
On Bike to Work Day late last month, about 100 cyclists stopped by the station set up by the city and Cascade Bicycle Club at state Route 900 and Northwest Sammamish Road.
Pacific Bicycle Co. performed light tune-ups and adjustments for riders at the station, and the Lakemont Ladies Cycling Club motivated riders, provided information and sold Cascade Bicycle Club T-shirts.
The club tallied 14,251 riders at Bike to Work Day stations across the region during the May 21 event.
Morning commuters enjoyed clear weather, but rain fouled the afternoon trip. In Issaquah, Bike to Work Day ended with a free barbecue for cyclists at Pickering Barn.
