Bike Everywhere Month
The City Council typically proclaims May each year as Bike Everywhere Month, in coordination with Cascade Bicycle Club and the League of American Bicyclists. This promotes greater public awareness of bicycle operations and safety, with the goals of increasing the amount of bicycling activity on Kirkland's roads and trails, and decreasing the rates of collisions, injuries, and fatalities. The City is committed to building and sustaining a thriving community by creating a livable, walkable, vibrant, accessible, and sustainable Kirkland for all residents.
Bike Everywhere Day
Bike Everywhere Day is the third Friday in May. In cooperation with Cascade Bicycle Club, Kirkland participates by hosting celebration stations where people on bicycles can stop by to be cheered on, receive giveaways, and learn about the latest bicycling-related developments in the city.
All are encouraged to come out and join the fun! The City will have celebration stations at Marina Park and Evergreen Point Park & Ride / 520 Trail from 6 - 9 a.m. Interested in hosting your own celebration station? Visit Cascade Bicycle Club to register.
