This year we are moving to a virtual event as we try to do our part in limiting the spread of COVID-19 for our participants, volunteers, partners, and board members.

Join Us September 4-12th for a Virtual SpokeFest ride in 2021!

Spokane and Inland Northwest’s largest bicycling event

Now more than ever… Bike. Stay Healthy. Stay Happy.

SpokeFest is honored to recognize Second Harvest as our charity for 2021

Please consider an extra donation for those in the community that are food insecure.

The 14th  Annual SpokeFest is On Its Way!

SpokeFest returns as a virtual event in 2021.

SpokeFest was developed with the non-bicycle enthusiast in mind just as much as experienced cyclists. We welcome anyone interested in riding a bicycle and families going out on a group ride for the first time. The routes were carefully chosen to be interesting, beautiful, and challenging, but not so challenging that first-timers can’t make it. The routes are easier with training, but it is not required. During this virtual event, we encourage riding in your own neighborhood or finding a new bicycle path to explore with family and friends.

Our Mission

The SpokeFest Association is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization which promotes bicycling for health and transportation. We do this through education on bike safety at school-age and adult levels, as well as the following events:

SpokeFest: Featuring our signature annual 21 mile ride with 9 mile and 50 mile options.

Bike Everywhere Month with Spokane Bikes: Promoting bicycle commuting for better lifestyles and the environment.

Spokane Summer Parkways: Returning for the twelfth year, with an event on the Solstice and several Kidical Mass rides.  A joint project with The City of Spokane. For a taste of this, Check out this video.
