See also

Thursday evening in spite of Seattle’s unusually cold weather, bicycle advocates, aficionados and enthusiasts overflowed WA Bikes’ headquarter offices as well as Axis Pioneer Square, gallery and event space. Among event attendees were many intrepid bike commuters, a testament to Seattle biking spirit. This second annual event was held in conjunction with the Pioneer Square First Thursday Art Walk. Along with ardent bike talk and lively conversation, attendees quaffed beers by Hilliard, one of Seattle’s fine craft breweries. Hors d’Oeuvres were provided by Veggie Grill, a vegan restaurant. The delectable spread consisted of healthy portions of totally organic, non-GMO soy, wheat and pea proteins. The selections fooled and pleased the staunchest non-vegetarians.

The event was more than conversation, beer, and eats. Art lined the walls of Washington Bikes as well as the gallery space of AXIS. Co-sponsor ZipCar was on hand to answer any questions about the opportunities of membership. Adjacent to WA Bikes offices is Back Alley Bike Repair which was open for service. Attendees entered raffles for bike swag and watched as tattoo artists competed with designs on co-sponsor TimBuk2 messenger bags. As the grand finale, one raffle winner took home a winning bag. The winner was a very happy, Sophie Luthin and the winning bag was by Andrew Schultz from Nite Owl Tattoo and Gallery located in Gig Harbor.

Once again Washington Bikes hosted an entertaining and fun-filled evening. Special recognition must be given to all those who attended, WA Bikes staff, and the generous co-sponsors: Zipcar®, Timbuk2, Hilliard’s Beer, Veggie Grill, Back Alley Bike Repair, International Sustainability Institute, AXIS.
