And you have a great chance to do just that tomorrow (Friday) as elected officials, Kirkland Greenways and Cascade Bicycle Club hit the streets for a “policy ride” to see and discuss ways the Eastside city can improve safety, comfort and access for people who would like to get around by bike. The ride could also be a great way to meet others and get involved.
The ride meets at Kirkland City Hall at 4 p.m. and will go until 6.
Kirkland is awesome these days and one of the Eastside’s best communities to explore by bike. Building new safer bike routes to schools, creating a connected network of neighborhood greenways, and finishing the Cross Kirkland Corridor will make it even more so.
Join Cascade, Mayor Amy Walen, and Kirkland City Council Members on Friday, February 28 for our first Kirkland Policy Ride to learn more about bicycling in Kirkland and how you can get more involved.
