City of Redmond holds Bike Bash
The City of Redmond held its Bike Bash to celebrate Bike-To-Work Day 2014 last Friday by the Sammamish River Trail at Redmond City Hall.
The event included giveaways from local bike shops, discounted helmets and bike registration with the Redmond Police Department, free food, live music from ‘80s cover band Rewind and Caribbean Steel Drums, massages and a cash beer garden from Redmond’s Bar and Grill.
"It's a cool way to celebrate biking and bring out the people who have a great love for it," said Jill Smith, coordinator of the Redmond Trip Resource & Incentive Program (R-TRIP).
On the program, she added: "What we do is create incentives for people that bike, carpool — or any way to stay green."
City employee Dave Shaw discussed his involvement in a new bike park in the works by Hartman Field: "What we did is got a real bike-park designer and got the kids who use it the most and combined (ideas). We are installing a whole new system of more jumps."
