Bike. Eat treats. Win. It’s that easy!


May is #BikeMonth, and we’ve got just the sweet treat for you to get riding! Join Commute Seattle’s Bikes and Bakeries Challenge, where you can win amazing bike-related prizes just for riding your bike and supporting bakeries across the city!


Participating is as easy as 1-2-3:


  1. Ride a bike to one of the participating bakeries.
  2. Scan the QR code at checkout and let Commute Seattle know which bakery you visited. Forgot to scan the code? Click here to submit your entry.
  3. Visit four bakeries during the month of May and be entered to win amazing bike-related prizes from local bike shops! Each additional bakery gives you another chance to win.


Check out the participating bakeries!

15 bakeries are participating in the Bikes and Bakeries challenge! Use this interactive map to see them all.

Don’t forget: you can #ShoptheSqueeze and win a $100 pre-loaded ORCA card or Visa gift card!


Bonus: if you visit a bakery in a Downtown-area neighborhood, you can also enter to win a $100 ORCA card or Visa gift card through the #ShopTheSqueeze contest! Shop the Squeeze encourages folks to explore Seattle’s small business scene via bike, bus, walking, or however you choose to get around without driving solo.


Entering #ShopTheSqueeze is easy:


1. Visit a small business in Belltown, Chinatown-International District, the Downtown Retail Core, Little Saigon, or Pioneer Square via alternative transportation

2. Post a photo from your visit to your Instagram, Twitter, or the OED Facebook page and tag or include the name of the business

3. Finish your post by using #ShoptheSqueeze and tell us how you got there in your caption!


That’s right—you can enter two contests for the price of one! Check out for contest details.


And, once it’s all over, let’s CELEBRATE! ?
