The community is invited to celebrate bicycling at the annual Redmond Bike Bash.

The party takes place on Bike to Work Day, May 18 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the Redmond Central Connector trail between Leary Way and 161st Ave Northeast.

Avid Redmond bicycle commuters, weekend riders and locals interested in learning more about biking are all invited to come to the party and enjoy music by the local band “Superhit”; food trucks; Redmond Bar and Grill’s Beer and Wine Garden ; information from local bike shops; Bike skills clinics; $10 bike helmets from the Redmond Police Department; and a Bike Rodeo to help practice kid’s biking skills with prizes.

It is free to attend so the city asks locals to pedal over and help celebrate cycling. Attendees over 18 years old who log a bike commute trip on GoRedmond.com before May 18, or who bike to the event, will earn a free bike t-shirt to pick up at the Bike Bash.
