WTF Nite - Mary Ann Thomas: Asking for Elephants

In lieu of shop time this month, we are ecstatic to welcome Mary Ann Thomas in the community space next door to the Bikery for WTF (women/trans/femme) night! Mary Ann recently attended the first WTF Bikexplorers Summit (for women, trans, and femme people). There, she presented her story on a panel of Queer People of Color. Before and since this event she’s been traveling to bike communities around the country and we are stoked to welcome her to our WTF community!

WTF Bike Camping!
Sep

to Sep 2

WTF Bike Camping!

The Bikery's first official WTF bike camping trip! Open to all who identify as women/trans/femme/non-binary. We were lucky enough to snag the last campsite at Kanaskat-Palmer for September 1 for one night. It's a labor day weekend miracle!

Expect to cover about 70 miles over the weekend. That sounds like a lot, but it's not when you spread it out over two days and the good news is this is a mostly flat ride. All skill and experience levels welcome - especially beginners! We promise we won't drop you, even if you're a bit slow. 

The plan: 

-We'll meet at the Bikery (845 Hiawatha Pl S in Seattle) at 10:00 am on Saturday, September 1st and roll out at 10:30 am. We'll head 35 miles in a southeasterly direction to Kanaskat-Palmer, stopping for lunch and groceries along the way.

-On Sunday we will head back sometime in the late morning / early afternoon.

-Everyone should plan to be self-sufficient with regards to food, sleeping situations, etc, but please reach out with any questions re: gear needs. The Seattle WTF explorers facebook group is an awesome resource for questions and gear lending: https://www.facebook.com/groups/178909139505801/?ref=br_rs 

Someone is bound to have a catastrophic mechanical failure and it'll be a good story, but don't let it be you! Come to The Bikery to tune up your ride beforehand!

Reserve your spot at https://squareup.com/store/thebikery. Space is limited and available on a first-come first-served basis. No one turned away for lack of funds. Please contact Tara Peters, Programming Lead, with questions at tara@thebikery.org.

The Bikery Goes Camping

It's summer, we're going camping!! We weren't "swift" enough this year to organize a Swift Campout but luckily for you that means you get to go camping with a bunch of friends and strangers/future friends again!

RSVP NOW: https://squareup.com/store/thebikery/

This year we'll be heading to Potlatch State Park via the Bremerton Ferry. Be prepared for roughly 40 miles riding each way, less than 1k elevation gain (!), beautiful hood canal views, snack stops, a campfire, bonding, playing on the beach, and some cozy camping in our modest sized reservations!

While I can't guarantee a great, I can highly suggest that it will be! Never done this before? Could be a great chance to try it out - no one left behind! Just be sure you have the necessary gear, and feel comfortable with the mileage to get there. Questions about bike camping, the route, the gear? Send us a direct message and I'm happy to help you out!!

WTF Night - Reflective Bike Hearts

It's dark, it's cold, it's also February when things (supposedly) get all lovey-dovey. Well, my cold heart loves my bike the best. Let's celebrate this purest form of love by making some red reflective hearts. I'll also be celebrating my [Ella's] 33rd bday near this, so I figure that is as good as an excuse as any for some sparkling rose.
