For ten days July 1–10, FREE BIKE will be whatever people like you make of it. Inspired by Pedalpalooza in Portland and Velopalooza in Vancouver, FREE BIKE invites anyone to host their own group rides, parties, discussions or anything else you can imagine. We will gather the details into one convenient, bike-fun-packed calendar.
Express yourself, meet new people and explore your city like you’ve never experienced before. That’s what FREE BIKE is all about.
There are only a few rules to being a host: You take full responsibility for your own event, and it must be free to participate.
Want to share your knowledge of neighborhood history? Lead a tour by bike! Is there a social issue near to your heart? Lead a bike ride to rally around the cause! Ever dreamed of cruising down Broadway with your bike posse blasting Sir Mix-A-Lot? I will join if you make it happen!
Submit the details for your event to the FREE BIKE calendar today. Or read this post for some helpful tips and tricks to hosting a fun ride. We will also be hosting in-person workshops for anyone who wants help finalizing their events. Stay tuned…
