How to Play Seattle Bike Bingo 2022

Bike Bingo is back! Bicycle Benefits launched its Seattle 2022 bike-friendly business game this month, and it’s running through the end of October.

The game is simple: ride your bike to local businesses on your map and get something there. Participating businesses have cards for sale for $3. They should also have Bicycle Benefits stickers for $5. Give them your card and they’ll give you a stamp. Get 5 in a row to unlock a reward, like a free chocolate bar from Theo or a Central Cinema movie pass. If you continue, you unlock another reward with each line. Complete the entire map to unlock even more rewards, but you’ll need to cycle all over town to complete this feat. You have to earn it.

More details on the advantages of cycling:

All you need is a bike in good working order, a Bike Benefits sticker (available at participating businesses) on your helmet, and a bingo card ($3 from any participating location). The map lists the locations in the area that have the maps available and will stamp your map when you cycle there and make a purchase using the bike perks and/or complete a fun challenge. When you get 5 in a row (yep; BINGO!) on your card, businesses in the area are giving away some nice prizes. Just roll and show them how far you’ve come and your 5 in a row.

Don’t stop there! You can continue to complete bingo lines, win more prizes and ultimately go blackout. We’ve put some more “out of the way” locations on the map to entertain adventurers and mileage enthusiasts. Please be loving and respectful to all the amazing places on the maps and have the time of your life. Don’t forget to post photos of your epic bingo adventure.

If you don’t know what Bicycle Benefits is, here’s the scoop. With this cute little sticker ($5) on your bike helmet, you can get year-round discounts all over Seattle when you ride your bike. Simply ask the employees for the “Bike Perks Offer” each time you cycle to one of the participating locations. Program stickers that do not expire can be purchased at participating businesses and on the website Support businesses usually have a Bicycle Benefits window sticker on their storefront.
