For 47 years, the city of Seattle has closed a section of Lake Washington Boulevard to vehicles on select spring and summer Sundays and turned it over to bicyclists and walkers.
In fact, “Bicycle Sunday,” sponsored by Seattle Parks and Recreation and Cascade Bicycle Club, is one of the older open-streets events in the country. About 2,500 people take advantage of the eight-hour car-free ambience of the beautiful street and lake view each opportunity.
The 2.5-mile route, which will be open this Sunday, stretches from Mount Baker Beach (2301 Lake Washington Blvd. S.) to the Seward Park entrance. It begins at 10 a.m. and ends at 6 p.m.
Future dates are:
•June 2, 16 and 30
•July 7 and 14
•Sept. 1, 15 and 22
