About Bike Fest 2019

Friday Harbor Bike Fest is the third annual bike ride sponsored by the San Juan Lions Club.

This June 1st event offers three routes exploring the picturesque roads of San Juan Island. Before the ride, scream yahoo! breakfast will be available for a separate fee at San Juan Island Brewing, our starting and ending point.

After the ride, enjoy four hours of rockin’ music provided by three local bands while savoring an award-winning BBQ Tri Tip (vegan burger option is available) (included with the fee). A pint of beer from San Juan Island Brewing or a glass of San Juan Vineyards wine will be available for a separate fee.

This year we have three simple pricing options available for singles, couples and families. Register now.

While we expect to have fantastic weather, this event will occur rain or shine. Come enjoy the spectacular views of the Salish Sea and our lush farmland and perhaps catch a glimpse of a fox or two. Also, enjoy  a 2019 San Juan Island Artists’ Studio Tour map providing a self-guided tour of our talented artists’ studios. 

Net proceeds go to support local needs in our community including college scholarships for local students, vision and hearing needs and more.

Live Music

Also from 3:00 to 7:00 PM we will have several music groups playing for your enjoyment. Local musician, Rob Simpson is a member of the Doors Legacy Band and also plays good old rock and roll, The Beach Boys, and his own compositions.

The Argyle street Jazz Band plays traditional New Orleans style jazz and guarantees that your “toes will be tappin”. Kate Schuman has sung from Friday Harbor to Nashville, and delivers an amazing collection of country and pop tunes. Her Patsy Cline program at our theatre was a barn burner.
