Support the Bellevue Bike Network

Bellevue just launched a modest and much needed “Bike Bellevue” plan to add 11 new routes to the downtown bike network. Voices in support of this plan are needed NOW to make sure the city moves forward with the plan, and doesn’t water down or delay its completion.

Complete the Seattle Bike Network

Cities with a network of connected, protected bikeways enable people of all ages and abilities to get around by bike. Seattle’s bike network has lingering gaps, and completely excludes some neighborhoods. Stand with us to demand that the City of Seattle build a protected bike network!

Prioritize Bike Access on Transit

Bikes are a core first/last mile solution for accessing regional transit like Sound Transit’s Link Light Rail and Sounder Train. Investing in safe bike routes, functional elevators and dedicated bike trains is essential for people to safely access stations, park-and-lock or bring their bike aboard.

Vision Zero campaign call to action

Speak up for Safe Streets in Your Community

Making our streets safe for people biking, walking, and rolling starts with real commitment from leaders at the local level. We’re calling on leaders across Washington state to enact policies that prioritize safety on every street. Tell your City Council to adopt a Vision Zero action plan today!

Completing the Burke-Gilman Missing Link

The Burke Gilman trail is a gem in Puget Sound’s network of off road, paved trails. But, despite decades of advocacy, the lingering one mile gap in the trail through Ballard, known to many as the Missing Link, remains. Cascade continues to advocate for completion of the Missing Link.

Connect Our Communities with Trails

For many people who bike, the joy of riding on a shared use path – away from traffic and closer to nature – is unparalleled. From Eastrail, the Olympic Discovery trail, and the Palouse to Cascades, there’s so much possibility once these trails are complete. Join us in saying YES for trails.

Invest in Secure Bike Parking Citywide

Whether parking to pick up a package, for the entire day, or at home; secure and convenient bike parking is an essential component of a bikeable city. Seattle needs abundant, secure bike parking options (for a range of types of bikes) in every neighborhood, at transit hubs, in commercial centers and more.
