Pre-event Information

September 18, 2017

We at Friday Harbor Bike-n-Brew are very excited that the event is only a few days away!  Here is some helpful information:

Weather: The National Weather Service predicts that Mother Nature will bless our event with sunny weather! Highs on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are predicted to be in the low 60’s. Those of you cycling know what to wear. The brewfest will have plenty of indoor space for those susceptible to the evening chill.

Travel and Event Locations: The Friday Harbor Bike-n-Brew website has lots of information to help you get to the island and to the event. Check out the links at the bottom of every page of the website. Reminder that those planning on driving onto the ferry should get reservations. Last, best opportunity to get a reservation is two days prior to your travel date at 7:00 AM. However, you can walk onto the ferry if you prefer. See our Travel To San Juan Island page for more information.

Event Times: Check-in for the bike event will be from 5-8 PM Friday for those arriving early, and at 7-9 AM Saturday, at the San Juan County Fairgrounds. See our event map. The bike ride will start at 9:00 AM with an escort through and out of town. The brewfest will start at Brickworks downtown at 5:00 PM. Those going to the brewfest and not participating in the ride need not check in at the Fairgrounds but instead can check-in at Brickworks beginning at 5:00 PM. Notice that Brickworks is not at the Fairgrounds. See our event map for location.

Breakfast with the Pirates: The Cutthroat Pirates of San Juan Island, a much-loved local charity, will be serving breakfast at the Fairgrounds on Saturday at 8:00 AM. Breakfast is very reasonable, and they put the money to good use. See our Breakfast with the Pirates webpage for more info.

Photos and Instagram: We would love to see the photos you take of the event. Post them to Instagram: bikesanjuans. If you have a good one that you would like to share with us, and you don’t mind that we post it on our website, email it to us at

We look forward to seeing you at the event!
