8th Annual Cycle the WAVE Ride!

September 20th, 2015

Registration is now open – register early for the best savings

Cycle the WAVE (Women Against Violence Everywhere), is a fully supported, non-competitive, all-women’s cycling event. It is a venue created for women of all ages and fitness levels to experience camaraderie, increase awareness of domestic violence through visibility and to raise funds for domestic violence programs across Washington State.

The first ride in 2008 generated 233 riders and by 2013 participation had grown to 1,206 women riders of all ages. In 2015, we anticipate hosting a record crowd of women cyclists!  And thanks to our riders, volunteers and supporters, the event has raised over $800,000 since 2008. This money goes directly back into Domestic Violence related agencies and non-profits.

201209161008-2Riders say this is one of the best supported rides in the State. We offer four great routes and amazing themed rest stops featuring quality food & beverages. This years sponsors include Starbucks, Tutta Bella, Essential Bakery, PCC, Flat Iron Grill, Evolution Fresh, Sol Stone Winery, Postdoc Brewing, Krave Jerky and Great Harvest Breads. Have you heard about the legendary “Hot Tamale” rest stop sponsored by the Issaquah firefighters?

All routes culminate at the fantastic Finish line reception…Revel and delight yourself with the special touches that make Cycle the WAVE so unique- Signature foods, a new Celebration wine & beer garden, pampering, cheerleaders and all kinds of fun surprises along the route.

wave 3Team up with your friends or family or ride solo! You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to raise money through our awesome no-pressure fundraising program, especially now with our NEW Team Captain’s Tool Box. Of course you can opt just to pay the low flat registration fee and just ride… but you would miss out on some of the most rewarding aspects of the event. It’s all about the power of women supporting each other,  and giving back to the community!
