Rain in the Rain 2020

Posted on October 26, 2020

Washington Bikes invites seasoned pedalers, new bike riders, and cyclists from all over our state to bike as much as possible for any reason during November 1-30. The idea of the Ride in the Rain Challenge is to turn a common barrier to biking — inclement weather — on its head and celebrate biking during the rainiest month of the year. We’re confident that if you can ride during the rainiest month and enjoy it, you’ll see how possible it is to bike all year round!

It's a great way to stop the spread of COVID-19, and show consideration and respect for your fellow riders.
