What we're about

Come Ride With Us! The Spokane Bicycle Club is a recreational and social organization that promotes lifelong cycling for fun and health. Group rides range from leisurely 10-mile social rides to longer fitness and endurance rides, as well as occasional multi-day tours. Some rides are urban and some are in the wider Inland Northwest around Spokane and Coeur d'Alene. We offer monthly meetings showcasing cycling adventures and innovation, and we advocate for safe cycling through sponsoring and supporting cycle-positive events and activities. More about our club can be found at: www.spokanebicycleclub.org.

May Bike Everywhere Month is organized by the Spokane Bicycle Club. In 2023 there will be 20 events/short rides offered FREE to the public. Events include a Bloomsday bike corral, pancake breakfast in Riverfront Park, wrapup party at the end of the month.
