Looking forward to all the upcoming stuff in the next 10 days for our shop I was reminded of my concerns Bike Commuters with the closure of the northbound shoulder of US 195 due to the construction of the Cheney - Spokane road Interchange. 

First, Here is What is Going-on :

Our weekly Shop Rides have resumed and one way we bring people together on bikes.  Please join us for this weekly ride from our location in Spokane's South Perry District.  This is a social road ride with two routes ranging from 12 - 18 miles for all abilities.

Calling all Junior Racers - as sponsor of the opening race this year, Two Wheel Transit is once again paying the entry fees of all Juniors on May 7.  Awesome races on the dirt for all ages and abilities.

We will be grilling burgers and brats after the race and providing the best raffle prizes of the season! Go to: Nomadz Racing for more information and registration.

Demo: Trek Factory Demo - Saturday, May 10th 10AM - 3PM
The Spokane Demo Day will be at Beacon Hill / Camp Sekani MTB Trails and located in the main parking area of Camp Sekani again this year.  Come with your riding gear and try-out some of the best new Road / Mountain / Women Specific Design bikes TREK has to offer.

Perry District Party: LADIES NIGHT OUT - MONDAY, MAY 12 - 6:30-8:30PM
Bring a friend and come hang-with the girls for food, drink, clinics on mechanics, clothing, riding, racing and nutrition, and 15% off of purchase of select clothing and accessories plus free giveaways! 

At 6:30, Debbie Judd, NP-C of the Metabolic Institute will be discussing nutrition and specific challenges for women athletes. 

With Bike to Work Week (BTWW) a week away I noted that the construction of the US 195 Interchange has once again closed the shoulders which will be a danger to northbound cyclists.  The project was supposed to be completed this past fall and looks to be about a year behind schedule. 

The good news is that they are currently paving the northbound shoulder, off/on ramps and the segregated bike lanes - hence the closed shoulders. 

Given the pace of paving, I would be very surprised if it were completed in time for BTWW so please plan an alternate route just-in-case.  As of Sunday, May 4th, the weather looks to be clear for the kick-off breakfast on May 12th though we are more accustom to monsoon-like weather.
