Three things we’ll be talking about this week

1Fans of pedaling will be out in force Sunday for the second-ever Spokefest. Last year more than 1,200 riders hit the road for a day of cycling fun. This year, participation is expected to be even greater. Riders can tackle a 21-mile route or a gentle one-mile trek. For details, visit www.spokefest.org/.

2Spokane native and retired Utah Jazz point guard John Stockton joins some elite company when he’s inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame on Friday. The 10-time All-Star and two-time Olympic gold medalist will be inducted alongside fellow players Michael Jordan and David Robinson.

3There will be cows, chickens and horses, of course. Carnival rides, musical acts and rodeo. Prize-winning vegetables, homemade crafts and antique machinery. Corn on the cob, elephant ears and ice cream. Yep. The Spokane County Interstate Fair promises to have it all. Festivities begin Friday.
