Bicycling
100 Miles for 100 Years of Suffrage
100 MILES FOR 100 YEARS OF SUFFRAGE Bellingham, Wash.- July 1st, 2020 - September 30th, 2020 Join Shifting Gears and the WA Historical Society in celebrating the 100th year of the Suffrage Movement and the power of the bicycle to initiate change. 2020 marks 100 years since the 19th Amendment was enacted, and in honor of this significant historical marker, Shifting Gears is hosting “100 Miles for 100 Years of Suffrage.” The program features the bicycle as a vehicle to honor and remember the achievements of the Suffragists by encouraging womxn and their friends, family members and allies to ‘ride a mile for every year of the Suffragist Movement’ between July 1st and September 30th. “100 miles is a lot of ground to cover!” says Shifting Gears’ Board Member, Taylor Sinason. “Participants can take on the challenge on their own, or join as a team. You don't have to ride a 100 miles in one day- you can work towards your goal over a period of time. The idea is to encourage all people outside of their comfort zone in a way that is challenging yet supportive and remind people that the fight for equity is on-going.” With the World Health Pandemic - COVID19, Shifting Gears is encouraging all participants to recreate responsibly, keep their physical distance, wear a mask when passing other bicycles or runners and where possible only recreate with people from the same household. Cost to enter is $15, with scholarships available for those who cannot afford the entry fee. For every 10 miles completed, riders will receive an inspiring card featuring a Washingtonian Suffragist. Collect 10 cards and the rider will be entered into a drawing on October 3rd, 2020 for a unique package donated by local and national companies. In addition to the inspirational collectible cards, the $15 entry fee includes access to Shifting Gears’ private club on Ride with GPS as well as to a private Facebook Group where you will have access to routes and sharing rides with other participants.

Allied Arts Heliotrope Art 'Xtravaganza
Allied Arts is invading the Heliotrope Hotel for the second time! Artists and organizations will take over the rooms and create interactive art displays, performances and music will be all over the hotel grounds, and food trucks will keep everyone’s bellies full. All ages are invited to come wander the hotel and grounds, listen to music, participate in immersive art experiences, sip beverages and eat their way through food trucks. Artists aren’t handed the keys of their rooms until just a few hours before people begin showing up – so it’s a real feat of planning and swift artistry. They also need to completely move out and leave the room as it was after the event! Rooms will vary from performances to installations to having items on display for sale. Featured artists and organizations are all active Allied Arts of Whatcom County members and have helped to make Whatcom County known for the arts locally, regionally and nationally.
