This December 20, be among the first to ride the region’s newest bike trail

Cascade and friends will be rolling across the SR 520 bridge trail just as soon as it’s open! Join us to celebrate, inaugurate and experience the long-awaited cross-lake bike/ped connection.

The new 14 foot bike and pedestrian trail on the SR 520 bridge will be complete and ready for your ride just days from now. The wide, relatively flat path unlocks myriad recreation and transportation possibilities for people on bikes.

Celebrate the opening of the bridge trail on Wednesday, December 20 with Cascade Free Group Rides from either Seattle or Bellevue.

For some, the trail means a new loop option for weekend Lake Washington rides, others will experience their regular commute as possible – or just a lot shorter – by bike for the first time.

For the region, the bridge trail represents a step toward our future: transportation infrastructure that’s accessible to all, and the ability to get more places by bike. Send a quick thank you to WSDOT Secretary Roger Millar to remind WSDOT that the state highway system matters to people on bikes.

And let’s not forget, the bridge trail will be a fun ride! With views of wetlands and lake, Mount Rainier on a sunny day, and the Seattle skyline (remember how amazing the view was when Cascade’s Emerald Bike Ride took over the SR 520 bridge in 2016 and again this May?)

P.S. If these rides don’t work for you but you’re looking for a reason to ride the bridge soon, check out the Cascade Free Group Ride Calendar where you will find many more rides posted from varying start points.
