Did you know that what we today commonly call a bicycle, was dubbed as the ‘bone shaker’ way back in 1865? It got that name because it was made of wood and had metal tires … and that combination on cobblestone roads made for an extremely uncomfortable ride.
Pull out your Boneshaker (we hope it’s more comfortable!) and join us for a scenic cycling event has everything a rider could want – including a fabulous tour around the Skagit Valley.
Enjoy the views of the countryside and beautiful Cascade mountains as you pedal off the miles on five different loops ranging from 3.5 miles to 25 miles and nearly all along flat, comfortable roads. All the rides are self-guided and will Start/Finish in the historic waterside town of La Conner at the La Conner Boys and Girls Club on N. 6th Street.
With fun rest stops, post-ride entertainment, discounts around town and at several lodging establishments, and a great staff to help you, you’ll find this event a spectacular biking event for everyone!

Another great way to join in the excitement and fun it to become a fan on The Boneshaker Bicycle Festival Facebook page!
