So What Happens at a Summer Parkways?

Bike Decorating Rides again on June 22, 2011

Add to the fun of Summer Parkways South Hill event on 6/22/2011 by decorating your bike.  Stop by the Two Wheel Transit tent at Comstock Park and show ’em your stuff.  They’ll have prizes just for taking part in the fun.

Here are some memories of the 2010 Two Wheel Transit Bike Decorating Contest:

Thanks to all the creative folks who turned up with decorated bikes for the first ever Summer Parkways event and thanks also to our fabulous judges: Mayor Mary Verner, and Councilmen Bob Apple and Richard Rush!

The judges deliberate…

Best Group:  These were also some of our youngest competitors, and they went all out with wings, balloons, and noodles decorating their window box bikes. Very creative, very functional, very cute!

Best Individual: There was a tie for best individual, and both chose to make a statement with their decoration. The first, Olivia Keen, tasseled her bike with strips of newspaper and attached cans, bottles, and more to create the “Green recycle bike”.

Joanne, our second winner, wheeled in on “American Spirit”, bedecked in stars and stripes, tailed by an American flag.

Best Creature on Wheels: The most creative creature on the course was also one of the first people to arrive all day, Duane Lemay, decked out in orange and tiger stripes, accompanied by at least 2 Tigger stuffed animals. His “Tiggerific” bike took home the top prize, and his tiger pal was safely wearing a helmet.


Coolest Family: This bike pack looked great, and rode away with the coolest family on wheels prize, congratulations to all!

Inspiration from around the world

Spokane is joining hundreds of other cities around the world in closing their streets to cars and promoting cycling, walking and other active forms of transportation in Ciclovia-inspired events.




Watch the original inspiration, a Bogota, Columbia Ciclovia video here; it’s easy to see why a group of Complete Streets advocates, health professionals, cyclists, and the Spokane community have rallied around bringing this concept to life here.

Scope out some other inspiration events below:

Bike Miami

Chicago Sunday Streets

Streets Alive San Mateo County

El Paso Scenic Sundays
