Pancake breakfast kicks off the Kitsap Color Classic bicycle ride

Wednesday, September 20, 2017

The Edmonds Bicycle Advocacy Group hosts its annual pancake breakfast fundraiser, 7-9:30am on Sunday, September 24, at the Edmonds Masonic Center located at 515 Dayton Street. 

The hearty, all-you-can-eat, breakfast features pancakes, sausages, eggs, fruit, juice and coffee for $7. 

The annual event kicks off the Cascade Bicycle Club’s Kitsap Color Classic ride starting from the same location as the breakfast. Riders may choose from 25-, 39- and 57-mile route options on the Kitsap Peninsula. More ride information here.

“The tradition of an Edmonds Bicycle Advocacy Group pancake breakfast began 20 years ago as a way for cyclists to fuel up for one of the most popular fall rides in this area,” said Janice Corbett co-organizer for the event. 
“It’s our biggest fundraiser of the year. The profits from the breakfast, and donations collected at the event, support bicycling in South Snohomish County. Previously, funds raised paid for new bicycle racks throughout Edmonds and bicycles for children.”

The group also partners with local city governments, non-profit organizations and the Edmonds School District.

Community events include kid’s bike rodeos at area events such as the City of Edmonds Health and Fitness Expo in May, Bike to School Day, and the “Lets Go” bicycling education program in Edmonds School District physical education classes.

Thousands of students have completed the instructional and hands-on program to learn safe bicycling practices.
