Early Bird tickets are on sale now through February 28, 2019
Bike Works is a Seattle-based nonprofit with a mission to promote the bicycle as a vehicle for change to empower youth and build resilient communities. Since 1996, they’ve worked to make bicycling accessible and affordable in Seattle. Bikecitement! brings together over 500 community members with a passion for bicycling, youth, community, education, access, environment, and social justice.
This year, Bikecitement! will celebrate the idea that bicycles change lives with the theme, “Where the Wild Things Bike.” The evening will begin at 5 PM with drinks, appetizers, and a chance to show off your fierce self in the Youth in Focus photo booth. Battle your fellow beasties for coveted auction items, from custom jewelry crafted from upcycled bicycle parts, to a night out at some of Seattle’s finest restaurants. Whether you’re looking to ride home on an extra-special bicycle or sip an extra-special beverage, you’ll discover it at Bikecitement!
The raucous festivities will also include a delicious, locally sourced meal, beverages, desserts from all over the city, and moving stories from the youth who learn bike mechanic skills at Bike Works.
“I donate to multiple organizations, and get invited to many auctions. This is the one I go to every year.” – Mark F, Bike Works supporter and Bikecitement! fan
