To be held at R+E Cycles
5627 University Way NE, Seattle Saturday, February 27th 10am - 5pm
Admission is FREE!
Come join us for pizza, coffee, beer, bicycles, and a chance to converse one-on-one with some of Seattle's cycling gurus at The Seattle Bike and Pike Expo of 2016.
At R+E Cycles, we love Seattle, and the small companies that actually produce their products here. In October 2008, I asked our friends Charles and Rose Ann at Pike Brewing Company in Downtown Seattle if they would like to put on an event here in Seattle with other Seattle based entrepreneurs (and personalities) and they were just as excited
about it as we were.
The flavor of Seattle Small Business is unique, and sometimes gets diluted when an event gets overwhelmed with big firms that have unlimited advertising budgets. We thought it would be great to put on a smaller event that showcased unique Seattle companies and their products, while at the same time raise money for a local charity.
Over the last seven years, the Bike and Pike has been a great success! We've raised over $27,698 for Food Lifeline here in Seattle, and had lots of fun doing it.
Want to go to an event this February that's bicycle oriented and highly focused on Seattle based companies? The 2016 Seattle Bike and Pike Expo is for you! Here's some of what's lined up:
All the local vendors attending have donated excellent items for the Silent Auction or the drawing. It's all for a great cause, and you get a chance to own some exceptional Seattle Made stuff! 100% of the proceeds from this auction will go directly to Food Lifeline
here in Seattle.
Bidding: We've made it easy!
You've got no excuse not to bid for these great items. You can bid even if you are not attending! You can bid even if you're not in Seattle! You can bid online right from this link.

At The Event Feb. 27th
R+E Cycles You're invited to tour our entire facility! See where Rodriguez and Erickson bicycles are made, painted, and assembled and meet the folks who build them! Bring a friend who hasn't been here before, and we'll give you an R+E Cycles coffee mug.
