June 1, 2019
Friday Harbor Bike Fest is the third annual bike ride sponsored by the San Juan Lions Club. This June 1st event offers three routes exploring the picturesque roads of San Juan Island plus a 2019 San Juan Island Artists’ Studio Tour map providing a self-guided tour of our talented artists’ studios. Before the ride, breakfast will be available for a separate fee at San Juan Island Brewing, our starting and ending point.
After the ride, enjoy four hours of rockin’ music provided by three local bands while savoring an award-winning BBQ Tri Tip (vegan burger option is available) (included with the fee). A pint of beer from San Juan Island Brewing or a glass of San Juan Vineyards wine will be available for a separate fee.
This year we have three simple pricing options available for singles, couples and families. Register now.
While we expect to have fantastic weather, this event will occur rain or shine. Come enjoy the spectacular views of the Salish Sea and our lush farmland and perhaps catch a glimpse of a fox or two.
Net proceeds go to support local needs in our community including college scholarships for local students, vision and hearing needs and more.
At a festival you can pick and choose what makes you and yours happy, so we have three (3) supported rides that showcase the splendor of San Juan Island. If you are new to festival riding we have just the perfect 12 mile (click for map) course to enjoy, or if you need a little more to get your appetite working, we have a 20 mile jaunt (click for map) that is just right for a meandering pace on a spring day, while our Long course is a Metric Century (click for map), in honor of our Canadian neighbors, that is a bit tougher, but covers the entire island in 62 Miles.
The idea of a Fest is to have fun and choose your own activities. In addition to the ride choices you can start your day early with a hearty no-host breakfast preparing yourself for the shotgun start. Or you can arrive later and enjoy a more casual ride. Either way, on your return, please enjoy an afternoon of music, stories, BBQ (Tri-Tip or Vegan option) and libations (local brews or wines) with your friends and fellow bikers.
We wish you the best and hope you have a marvelous time on our Island.
