2015 Bicycle Sundays kick off May 3.

May is Bike Month, and we’re celebrating by kicking off the 50th anniversary series of Bicycle Sundays on May 3, 2015.

During Bicycle Sundays, a portion of Lake Washington Boulevard will be closed to motorized vehicles from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Seattle Parks and Recreation invites everyone in the community to bike, jog or stroll along the boulevard between the Seward Park entrance and Mount Baker Park’s beach during these times.

The 2015 event dates are:

  • May 3, 17, 31
  • June 21, 28
  • July 5, 12
  • Aug. 9, 16, 30
  • Sept. 13, 20

The Cascade Bicycle Club will sell helmets in Seward Park for $15 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. and offer professional helmet fittings on June 21 and 28, July 5, Aug. 9, 16 and 30. King County law requires all cyclists to wear helmets. Wearing a properly fitted helmet reduces the risk of severe head injury by 85 percent.

Bicycle Sundays are sponsored by Seattle Parks and Recreation, Cascade Bicycle Club and Seattle Department of Transportation with the support of the Seattle Police Department.
