Join Cascade Bicycle Club and fellow cyclists at the biggest Tour de France inspired festival on the west coast! This annual family-friendly event is a great place to relax with your buddies over a summer picnic. We've lined up some new events to make Cyclefest the go-to summer blockbuster bicycling event in Seattle!
Kids kick off Cyclefest this year with a Magnuson Park Bicycle Treasure Hunt! Following the hunt, kids can strut their stuff in the kids’ bicycle parade. We have also lining up a very special attraction this year - Ryan Leech, world-class Norco mountain bike stunt rider. Later in the evening, racing action heats up with head-to-head road sprints by some of the fastest sprinters in the area!
Great brews will be on tap in the New Belgium Beer Garden to wash down tasty food from Seattle Sausage Company and Athena's Gyros. At dusk (approx 9:15 p.m.), the racing takes off with one of the Tour de France's most exciting stages shown on a 15' x 20' inflatable screen. Stage 16 from Martigny to Bourg-Saint-Maurice is guaranteed to be exciting, with a finish in the high mountains!
While you're at Cyclefest, be sure to also check out the fun booths and a very special Tour de France Poster exhibit, presented by Alliance Francaise de Seattle. As always and just like the Tour itself, attendance is totally free!
