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, volunteers and attendees - we had great fun.

Planning for Bike Week 2019 (May 11-18, 2019) began in June 2018 -- and more than ever, will encompass events across Kalamazoo County.  If you want to share an idea, help plan, make an announcement or organize an event during Bike Week, please contact Paul Selden at info@bikefriendlykalamazoo.org.

We may be able to accommodate additional events and announcements up until March 31, 2019. Don’t hesitate to contact Paul for more information.

The last public planning meeting in 2018 took place on October 25, 2018, 4-5pm at the Portage District Library (Austin Lake Room), 300 Library Lane, Portage MI 49002.  If necessary, we will also meet as a group in 2019, with dates to be announced later.

At this point most of the planning and implementation of the great ideas we surfaced throughout our meetings held during the summer and fall of 2018 is in the hands of our wonderful individual event organizers. It can also be accessed via the links below.

Please watch this page for additional updates.
