The 7th Annual Kalamazoo Bike Week was a success. The weather was generally good and attendance at the events was great.  Thank you to all event organizers and participants, volunteers and sponsors - we had great fun and are looking forward to our 8th Annual Bike Week!

Planning is well underway for Bike Week 2019 (May 11-18, 2019) -- and more than ever, will encompass events across Kalamazoo County.  To make a bike-related announcement or organize an event during Bike Week that you want to promote here, please contact Paul Selden at bikeweek@bikefriendlykalamazoo.org.

It’s not too late to get on board — you can come up to speed and participate by taking advantage of the links below.

We may be able to accommodate additional events and announcements up until March 31, 2019, when our Website Event and Media Release Form is due. Don’t hesitate to contact Paul for more information.
