About F5 Networks Bike Everywhere Week

Join us and the League of American Bicyclists in celebrating bikes all week this September 21 to 27:

  • The F5 Networks Bike Everywhere Weekend! September 26 and 27 get ready to celebrate Bike Everywhere Day for two days straight!  In person activities, giveaways, DIY activities.
  • We are also joining a week-long celebration of National Public Lands with our partners at Mountains to Sound Greenway.
    • The theme for this year is trash!  Pick it up and help keep our public lands healthy.
    • If you'd like to create a work party or event on a public use trail by bike, please let us know and we will advertise it here.

The best way to celebrate F5 Networks Bike Everywhere Week is simply to get on a bike: ride to work, ride to the grocery store or just ride for the sheer joy of being outside soaking up the last rays of sun before autumn arrives in full!

So Get Rolling!

Whether you're a veteran cyclist, returning after a break from the bike or a brand new rider, F5 Networks Bike Everywhere Week is the best time of the year to get in the saddle. Keep riding with us year-round by joining us for our volunteer-led Free Group Rides, including virtual Zwift rides from the comfort of home.
