It’s official, the City of Kenmore proclaimed May as Bike Month!

Whether you're a novice rider or a veteran commuter, the City of Kenmore and community partners around the state are rolling out a lineup of fun, free events and activities designed to celebrate bicycling:

Bike Bingo - the month of May: Explore Kenmore by bike with a game of Bingo! Stop by City Hall (18120 68th Ave NE) to get a copy of the bingo sheet and start checking off those boxes for a reward! If you would like to print one at your own convenience, click here to view the file.

Target Zero Pop-Up Party - Wednesday, May 10: Stop by the Target Zero tent along the Burke-Gilman Trail at Log Boom Park (6101 NE 175th St) between the hours of 4:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. to grab a snack, bike and city resources, and check off a bingo square.

Bike Everywhere Day - Friday, May 19: Join us to celebrate Bike Everywhere Day on Friday, May 19, 4:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m., at 192 Brewing Company (7234 NE 175th St) located along the Burke-Gilman Trail. This free, family-friendly event will feature live music, snacks, giveaways and resources from Bothell Ski and Bike and Corpore Sano Physical Therapy.

Introductory Bike Ride - Sunday, May 21: The City is partnering with Corpore Sano Physical Therapy to host a bike ride on Sunday, May 21! This ride is intended for everyone, including those new to riding or want to go on a Sunday stroll with the kids. The event starts at Corpore Sano Physical Therapy (6161 NE 175th St) at 2 p.m. with an educational talk, and then we will ride to Bothell's Blyth Park on the Burke-Gilman Trail and back. The entire event is expected to last an hour. Helmets are required.

Bike Month activities are part of the City's education efforts in promoting the Target Zero Initiative. The Target Zero Initiative was adopted by the City of Kenmore in April of 2014 with the goal of achieving zero pedestrian and bicyclist fatalities and serious injuries in Kenmore by 2025 by increasing awareness of pedestrian, bicyclist and driver safety issues.
