Bicycles to reflect the abilities of our whole community


One of the first things we agreed on in planning the B-Town Bike Fair is that we wanted it to reflect the entire community of Burien. We’re working at this in a few ways, one of which is our continued partnership with the Outdoors for All Foundation. Anne, who has brought their amazing collection of adaptive cycles to Burien for bike rodeos in prior years, has lined them up to be a part of the B-Town Bike Fair this year.

Their fleet includes a large variety of cycles including three- and four--wheeled bikes, hand-cycles, tandem bikes and recumbent cycles. Whatever your physical ability level, come try out something new and see the variety of cycles available.

The Outdoors for All Foundation seeks to bring the joy of the outdoors to everyone by sharing their expertise in adaptive recreational equipment. They are one of the largest nonprofit organizations providing year round instruction in outdoor recreation for people with physical, developmental and sensory disabilities. And they don’t just do bikes! Outdoors for All’s year round programming includes snowboarding, snowshoeing, cross country and downhill skiing, cycling, hiking, river rafting, canoeing and kayaking, day camps, water skiing, rock-climbing, camping and custom events.
