The first Bicycle Sunday of 2011 is May 8, kicking off a series of car-free Sundays on Lake Washington Boulevard this summer. The event stretches from Mt. Baker Beach to Seward Park, creating a long, temporary lakeside park.
This year, there will be a couple fewer Bicycle Sundays compared to the past two years, according to Biking Bis:
Seattle’s Bicycle Sundays returns to the shoreline road along Lake Washington for 12 Sundays this summer beginning May 8.
The 2-1/2 mile scenic stretch of Lake Washington Boulevard will be closed to motor vehicle traffic from Mount Baker Beach to Seward Park between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Unfortunately, the number of dates offered by the Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation has been cut back from 19 the previous two years. There are two in May, June and August, and three in July and September.
Usually the road is closed to cars every Sunday during the summer, except for special events such as Seafair Weekend and marathons.
