The 520 Bicycle and Pedestrian Trail is opening! People riding bikes can now get from one side of the lake to the other. Whether you prefer aerodynamic helmets and spandex or you’re just trying out a traffic-free commute at your own pace, people traveling by bicycle (and on foot!) now have more options. Join the Choose Your Way Bellevue team, Cascade Bicycle Club and the City of Bellevue in celebrating the opening December 20 at 3 p.m.

Take the one way ride across the lake from Bellevue, or take the round trip, but either way come warm up at our booth at Evergreen Point with some complimentary hot chocolate. You can pick up a free souvenir pin, bike lights, and give our prize wheel a spin, too! You may just win two tickets to skate at the Bellevue Magic Season Ice Arena. Make sure you’ve brought your bike over to the Eastside on the bus before the event so you can bike back.

Please note that the expansion joints on the bridge have been reported as quite bumpy, so ride with caution!

If you’re new to biking or need a few refreshers, head over to Choose Your Way Bellevue’s Intro to Urban Cycling. This event will be led by a Cascade Ride Leader who will be passing on words of wisdom from the rules of the road to how to look cool and stay safe while biking. As if that wasn’t incentive enough, there will be free pizza! Just don’t try to eat it while riding… April 19, 12-1 p.m. Bellevue City Hall room 1E-112.

After you’ve become acquainted with urban cycling make your way to Eastside Packet Pickup and Captain’s Party at Geaux Brewing. This is where you’ll start your Bike Month Challenge with Cascade Bicycle Club- a wealth of information for bikers! There will be prizes, free minor tune-ups from Velofix, food for purchase from Bread and Circuses and info for riding throughout the Eastside. April 21, 3:30-7 p.m.

Now that you’ll be up to speed, stop by the Bike Everywhere Day stations at Bellevue Transit Center and the I-90 trail at Enatai Park for a morning chat and fuel up with other bikers. There will be bike swag, Starbuck’s coffee, snacks from Whole Foods, activities, and Gregg’s will be offering minor tune-ups! May 20, 6-9 a.m.

To cement biking into your future and the future of downtown Bellevue, join the Cascade Bicycle Club Policy Ride for a 5-mile lunchtime loop to explore potential bike routes as part of the Pedestrian and Bicycle Implementation Initiative. May 25, 12-1 p.m., start at Bellevue City Hall.
