MBBC Booth at Seattle International Bike Expo - every year!
The MBBC has a booth every year at the Seattle International Bike Expo, and volunteers from the club staff the booth over the 2-day event. We use this booth to promote bicycling in Bellingham through the Chuckanut Century, 2015 Tandem Rally, and other Bellingham Tourism events.
The Expo is the largest consumer bicycle show in the US, with 250+ exhibitor booths, exhibits of gear, travel, health and fitness. There are presentations and speakers throughout the weekend.
If you'd like to volunteer to help staff the booth, you can sign up for a 2-hour shift plus entry to the Expo on that day. Contact Doug at his Chuckanut Century email address to volunteer for a shift: firstname.lastname@example.org - or phone 410-6431.
