SPOKANE, Wash. — The Spokane Bicycle Club is encouraging the Inland Northwest to get out and ride with a few incentives.

May 16-22 is Bike to Work Week, and there are plenty of events planned out for Spokane’s local cyclists. You can participate in some short rides around the city, or you could go for something a bit more leisurely.

The club is hosting a free pancake breakfast in Riverfront Park on Monday. It’ll be at the North picnic shelter from 7-9 a.m.

There will be Roast House coffee and blueberry pancakes, courtesy of the club. It’s a great opportunity to mingle with other biking enthusiasts and find out what other cycling amenities are on the horizon.

There will also be a “Ride of Silence” on May 18 in Riverfront Park. The event is at the Michael Anderson statue at 6 p.m., and the ride will honor cyclists killed or injured on the road. A short dedication will precede the ride and helmets are required.

And May 20 officially marks the City of Spokane’s Ride your Bike to Work Day. So get those pedals ready for a nice ride to work, but if you live too far away to bike, then consider attending one of the many other biking events planned for the month of May!
