Join neighbors and Kirkland government leaders for a Friday ‘policy ride’

kirkland-policy-rideKirkland could be on the verge of a walking and biking revolution, and its up to the people who live, work and play there to get behind it.

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.

Details from the event listing:

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.

On the ride, Cascade’s advocacy staff and Kirkland City Council Members will discuss potential neighborhood greenways, bike lanes, bike overpasses, and the Cross Kirkland Corridor. Afterwards we’ll head to Wilde Rover where we can discuss next steps to maintain public and political support for making Kirkland a safer place to ride.

Sunset is at 5:58 p.m. on February 28, so don’t forget your lights!

    It’s funny how local government always schedules outreach events for when most functioning people are at work.
