It's the 9th Annual Seattle Bike and Pike!

Seattle Bike and Pike
February 25th, 2017

To be held at R+E Cycles
5627 University Way NE, Seattle
Saturday, February 25th 10am - 5pm

Admission is FREE!

Come join us for corn dogs, 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 2017.

That's Right!
I said Corn Dogs!

We'll have Tofu and Regular

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.

Space Needle Graphic

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 eight years, the Bike and Pike has been a great success! We've raised over $32,883 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 2017 Seattle Bike and Pike Expo is for you! Here's some of what's lined up:
