Sustainable Commute: Celebrate Bike Month in Bellevue

May is Bike Month in the Heart of Bellevue! It's a time when cyclists of all ages and abilities come together to celebrate the joy of biking and raising awareness about the benefits of this sustainable mode of transportation. With its many trails, bike lanes, and bike-friendly infrastructure, Bellevue is an ideal place to celebrate Bike Month and enjoy all the fun and fitness that cycling has to offer.

Hosted by Choose Your Way Bellevue, one of the highlights of Bike Month in Bellevue is the Annual Bike Everywhere DayStop by the Bellevue commute stations on May 19 starting at 7 a.m. for refreshments, goodies and more!

Here's where to find the three stations in Bellevue:

  • SR 520 Bridge at Evergreen Point, Medina
  • Bellevue Transit Center: 108th Ave. NE and NE 6th St.
  • I-90 East Enatai Station: I-90 Mountains to Sound Trail entrance at SE 34th St. and 109th Ave. SE

If you're new to biking, Bike Month is a great time to give it a try. There are plenty of resources available to help you get started, including bike safety classes, group rides, and workshops on bike maintenance and repair. There will be two separate FREE Bike Classes by Cascade in the Bellevue Library this month! May 20 will be a “Intro to Maintenance” class and May 27 will be an “Intro to Bike Commuting” class. With these classes and so many great bike routes in and around Bellevue, there's little reason to not see all of the beautiful scenery on two wheels.

While Bike Month holds plenty of exciting competition and prizes, it's also an opportunity to raise awareness about the many benefits of biking. Choosing this more sustainable commute improves your health, reduces traffic traffic congestion and air pollution, and lower transportation cost! By encouraging more people to ride their bikes, we can make our communities healthier, happier, and more sustainable.

Whether you're a seasoned cyclist or a newcomer to the world of biking, there's something for everyone to enjoy during Bike Month in Bellevue. So grab your helmet, hop on your bike, and join the fun!
