Organizers expect hundreds of cyclists Sunday at the second SpokeFest, and late registrations are still being accepted.
The event, intended to promote bicycling among all skill and fitness levels, includes a 21-mile ride and a 1-mile ride, starting and ending in downtown Spokane.
Bill Bender, president of the SpokeFest Association, said that organizers expect between 2,000 and 2,500 riders on Sunday – compared to about 1,200 last year.
“I think people wait and look for the weather,” he said. “The forecast looks great, so we’re looking for a big turnout.”
Registration fees are $20 for adults and $15 for children 12 and younger. People can register online at spokefest.org; at Mountain Gear, 2002 N. Division, on Friday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. or Saturday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.; or the morning of the ride starting at 7 a.m., at Spokane Falls Boulevard and Post Street.
