Meet up 10:30 a.m. at the Flamingo parking lot of the Woodland Park Zoo to ride with the group to the Green Lake Community Center for “kids activities and refreshments” from 11 to 1. Also, project staff will be on hand to answer all your various questions, such as, “Why don’t the bike lanes connect to N 77th Street?” and “Can the bike lanes please connect to N 77th Street?”
You can get a preview of what it’s like to ride in the new bike lanes by watching Seattle Bike Blog’s video tour.

Inaugural Bike Ride
Our week of fun begins with an Inaugural Bike Ride which will start on Saturday, July 31 at 10:30 AM. We are starting in the Flamingo parking lot of the Woodland Park Zoo located at the corner of N 50th St and Phinney Ave N. We’ll ride along the expanded bike lanes on N 50th St and then proceed north on Green Lake Way N to the new two-way bike lane! We’ll end the ride at the Green Lake Community Center where there will be kids activities and snacks from 11am to 1pm. Project staff will also be on hand to answer your questions about the new improvements.
Scavenger Hunt – Enter to Win!
In addition to the Inaugural Bike Ride, we are also hosting a week-long scavenger hunt to explore all the multi-modal improvements made around Green Lake and Wallingford, with items like our new rapid flashing beacons for pedestrian safety on the list!
To participate, post a photo of yourself completing any of the scavenger hunt activities with the hashtag #GreenLakeScavanger on Twitter or Instagram to be entered to win a gift card to one of our local participating businesses. Each activity post will give you one entry. Scavenger hunt is open from Saturday, July 31 to Sunday, August 8.
