It’s officially bike season so grab your calendar and get ready to save some dates! This Spring is already shaping up to be one of the bikiest yet, and we can’t wait to hit the road and celebrate life on two-wheels. Let’s check out what’s coming up!
National Bike Challenge – Kicks off May 1st
First thing’s first, next week kicks off this year’s National Bike Challenge! People for Bikes is back at it again with their nationwide celebration of the people that push pedals. Join the challenge, the Pure Fix team, and stack those miles to show the world where you ride and help PfB make the world a better place for bikes! This year’s prizes include our very own People for Bikes ride, and we’ll be sourcing our own swag for the top riders on our team too. Don’t wait, start riding!
Bike to Work Month – All May Long
Ask your boss about Bike to Work Day, your mayor about Bike to Work Week, but if you ask us, we’ll just point to the month of May. At Pure Fix, all month long we applaud and encourage commuting by bike. Our employees that make the ride in every day unlock some sweet perks (even those of us that ride year round) and we love to see other companies jumping on board too! We’ll also have our now-famous Bike to Work pit stop set up, pop-up commute cheering, and some sweet surprises, so make sure you start riding into work next week!
LA Bike Festival & Mother’s Day – May 8th
Imagine a Disneyland-esque theme park for all things bike right in the heart of downtown LA. That’s exactly where we’ll be on May 8th when the LA Bike Fest kicks off its inaugural run in Grand Park! Bike demos, games, music, food, and all the smiling faces you usually see rolling through the city. Oh, and we’ll be there with a booth of our own, giving free test-rides, goodie bags, and soaking up the sun. Ride on out and say “hi” (and don’t forget to bring Mom! It’s her day too after all).
CicLAVia – May 15th
Our favorite open-streets event, CicLAvia is back on May 15th with the Southeast Cities route! Nowhere else can you experience the city streets free from their usual automotive overlords (except ironically in car commercials, where you’ll only ever see the “star” car cruising through a deserted downtown). On May 15th, the roads will be returned to the people, and tens of thousands of Angelenos will again head out on bikes, shoes, and skates to share the streets with their city-mates. If you’ve done a CicLAvia before, you’ll definitely be there. If you haven’t, you won’t want to miss it!
Encino Omnium 2 – June 5th
Ready to get racy? Dust off your velodrome certification (or come by early to get your 2016 race card) and let’s hit the track! Our first day of racing was such a success, we couldn’t wait to do it again. Multiple fields, multiple events, one big party. A day at the races is never a day wasted, so whether you want to hustle or just soak up the competition, make your way to the Encino Velodrome on June 5th. We’ll be showcasing the latest and greatest from our Track series, the Pure Fix Race Team will be in full force, and this is your chance to ride with the best. Fast.
