They’re back! Bicycle Sunday returns to Seattle on May 4.
First introduced in 1965, Bicycle Sunday closes a three-mile stretch of Lake Washington Boulevard between Seward Park and Mount Baker Beach to motor vehicles on scheduled Sundays from May to September. Many a Seattle child has learned to ride a bike at Bicycle Sunday. Residents stroll, jog and skate along the car-free route.
Bicycle Sunday is sponsored by Seattle Parks & Recreation and Cascade Bicycle Club. A total of twelve have been planned for 2014, all between 10am and 6pm:
- May 4, 11 and 18
- June 1, 15 and 29
- July 6 and 13
- August 10 and 24
- September 14 and 21
