It’s First Thursday Art Walk in Pioneer Square, and we can’t think of a better way to send off this amazing summer than with a fun evening social! Join the gathering hosted by your friends at the Nord Building: The WAVE Foundation, Washington Bikes, and Back Alley Bike Repair.

We’ll have reps on hand from Cycle the WAVE, Washington Bikes, She Bikes Cascade and Seattle Cycle Sirens. There will be a free onsite drawing for cool door prizes at 6:30pm and 7:30pm. Be sure to visit both floors on the building, and Back Alley Bike Repair via the cool Nord Alley.

There will also be on-site specials from Nuu-Muu (fun & flattering exercise dresses) and Po Campo (functional & stylish bags) and registration discounts on the upcoming CtW event.

Libations at the bar include beer from our great pals at Peddler Brewing…and yes, it’s ok to bring the guys along ladies!


CtW “Fluff and Puff” Team

Do you remember the beautifully decorated bathrooms at Bellevue College for Cycle the WAVE 2014?  Our own “Fluff and Puff” team made it happen with their lovely DIY decorations.  Look for them again this year.  They are also working hard to “fluff” up the photo booth station with fun colorful frames to make your pictures really stand out.  Cycle the WAVE’s “Fluff and Puff” team are making sure the fun continues!
