Seattle Bikers Get Free Starbucks Friday

May 16, 2013


Yes, the Cheap Bastard knows it’s late, almost too late for you to see this on Thursday, but he hopes you’ll see it before you head out on Friday morning, especially if you’re planning on biking to work today. 

In celebration of F5 Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 17th (that’s this Friday), participating Starbucks are offering a free cup of coffee to anyone who shows up wearing a bike helmet or other bike gear all day long. 

That’s just part of the fun for bikers, though. The day’s events include a Ride to Seattle With Mayor McGinn at 7:30 and a rally at City Hall at 8 a.m. featuring snacks and cool swag. 

There will also be lots of commuting stations where bikers can go to get free swag, snacks and other cool stuff. 

And then there are the parties. Peddler Brewing Company is offering a pint for half off to anyone who shows up on a bike between 5 and 10 p.m. And F5 is hosting an After Party at Via6 (6th Ave. North and Blanchard) from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. featuring snacks and drinks from tom Douglas Restaurants. 

Sounds like a great day to ride a bike.
