Bike Everywhere Month proclamation

Posted on Jun 29, 2020

At the June 29 Bellevue City Council meeting, the mayor and city council proclaimed June 2020 as Bike Everywhere Month in Bellevue to recognize and encourage the hundreds of thousands of riders in Washington state who bike for travel and recreation.

Biking provides health, economic and environmental benefits. The City of Bellevue added 10 miles of new bike lanes in 2019 and will add eight more miles of on- and off-street bikeways in 2020. The city also created a Healthy Streets pilot program recently to allow people to safely bike and walk while maintaining appropriate physical distance during COVID-19.
