From a Community Transit News Release.
Celebration stations offer goodies and encouragement on Bike Everywhere Day
Friday, May 18 is Bike Everywhere Day and Community Transit is celebrating the use of bikes and buses at two celebration stations in Snohomish County.
On Bike Everywhere Day, people are encouraged to get on a bike and ride to work, school, the grocery store or anywhere else they need to go. Celebration stations along major routes all over the region greet first-timers and experienced riders with goodies and grins, offering lots of encouragement and support.
Community Transit encourages people to incorporate bikes and buses in their daily commute all year long. Every Community Transit bus is equipped with a bike rack, and bus riders can store their bikes in bike lockers located at park & rides throughout the county. More information, including an instructional video for using the bike racks, is available at www.communitytransit.org/bikes.
The best way to celebrate Bike Everywhere Day is simply to get on your bike and ride! Stop by one of these Community Transit celebration stations and pick up refreshments, bicycle information and transportation resources:

Bike Everywhere Day is part of Bike Everywhere Month, sponsored by Cascade Bicycle Club and F5. Bike Everywhere Month celebrates all types of bicycling, including recreational riding and biking for everyday transportation.
Events during Bike Everywhere Month include competitive team challenges, family bike rides, and bicycle maintenance classes. There’s also a social media contest, with weekly winners chosen from folks who post about their biking adventures on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with the hashtag #BikeEverywhere. Details about events and contests are online at www.cascade.org.
