Whidbey Island (WIBC) is number one in the state!
Join our team and let’s ride this home!
Today (May 13th) Nicolas Perera is leading by a decent margin. Who will unseat him?
WIBC has joined up with Whidbey Coffee for double stamp day for anyone that shows up at one of their store on Whidbey Island, Friday with their bicycle.
For bicyclists of all stripes, there’s nothing like Bike to Work Day (BTWD)! It’s an annual celebration of active transportation.
Go here to download the The U.S. Census Bureau’s data. Seattle (us) is listed “Gold” in Bike Commuting growth. We’re in 4th place behind Portland, Minneapolis and Washington DC.
Weekly Saturday ride
Saturday, May 16th, WIBC will have two groups riding out of Honeymoon Bay Coffee in Oak Harbor at 8am.
Our usual 18+mph group on the full route, and a moderate route riding a slightly shorter loop at 15 mph average but a no drop regrouped along the way.
Request for help
Sunday, May 17th – A local Boy Scout and WIBC member, Mitchell Carroll, are doing an Eagle project in Rhododendron Park.
If you would like to help, please contact Mitchell by email(firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Scout is asking for help clearing brush in the campground area, so tools for cutting & removing salal are needed.
After the work party there will be a ride a Rhododendron ride at the Kettles. Meet up at the kiosk on the Kettles trail at the Confusion/Roy Evens trail head at 2:30pm. Matt (Plush) will have some basic routes set up to enjoy the Kettles and Ft Ebey.
Remember if you park in the State Park you will need a Discover Pass.
Another fun ride for a good cause is coming up. Save the date – June 7th – and register for the Tour De Forts in Pt Townsend.
