Bicycle Sundays are for everyone!

 

Did you know they have already started?  Bicycle Sunday is one of the oldest open streets events in the country, a time honored tradition that makes our City so great!  Hundreds of people flock to the street to enjoy one of Seattle’s most beautiful streets without cars.   Lake Washington Boulevard between Mount Baker Beach Park and Seward Park is closed to vehicle traffic, and becomes the exclusive domain of bicyclists, tricycles, walkers, runners, and baby strollers for 12 consecutive Sunday afternoons, from May to September. It is a fun, safe, free and healthy recreation opportunity available to all ages and abilities.   No matter your age, your level of mobility, or your preferred mode of non-motorized transport, everyone in the family can enjoy this event.

Lake Washington Boulevard will be closed to motorized traffic from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. for the following 2014 dates:

May 4, 11 and 18

June 1, 15 and 29

July 6 and 13

August 10 and 24

September 14 and 21

Tips for safe riding:
