Saturday: Evergreen Mountain Bike Festival

King Country’s Duthie Hill is the site of Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance’s 5th Annual Mountain Bike Festival. Festivities begin at 9:00 in the morning and continue until 5pm.

The Duthie Hill Festival promises a packed day of mountain bike fun for all. There will be raffles, vendors, kids events, and skill clinics, guided rides, and of course a beer garden. Though entry is free to all, there is a charge of $10 (Evergreen members) or $20 (non-members) for participation in clinics, guided rides, and demos. Be sure sure to include money for raffle entries, food and that beer you’ll be thirsty for. All kids 14 and younger are free. All proceeds will continue to fund Evergreen’s development and maintenance of trails as well as advocacy to make our state of Washington an excellent mountainbiking location.

Sunday: Bike ’n’ Brews El Norte

There’s still time to register though too late for a t-shirt. Still there’s beer and a party. Pay your $50 registration fee Sunday morning at Myrtle Edwards Park on the Seattle Waterfront. Make a choice of riding 12, 38, or 48 miles so regardless of biking level, this event will be fun for all.

The original Bike ’n’ Brews by Cascade Bicycle Club was such a success, that the Club decided that it’s popularity deserved a second. This ride and brewery tour features the north end beginning at Myrtle Edwards Park at 9:00 am on Sunday, June 8. The tour will wind its way via the Elliott Bay, Ship Canal, and Burke-Gilman Trails as well as a few city streets. One highlight will be 192 Brewery right off the Burke-Gilman Trail, about a 20-mile ride. The finish line will be back at Myrtle Edwards Park where tour riders will be treated to live music and beer by both Peddler and Fremont Brewing Companies.
