Seattle Parks announces 2024 Bicycle Weekends on Lake Washington Blvd.

After a brief moment of excitement when Seattle Parks announced what appeared to be an expanded schedule for Bicycle Weekends this summer, the department corrected itself and confirmed that they are repeating the reduced schedule from 2023. The events previously known as Bicycle Sunday will still be a great time as they have been since 1968, but it was a bummer to get good news only to have the city take it back. There is so much demand for more community time and space on this street!

Below is the updated announcement with the 2024 dates:

On scheduled weekends from May to September, a portion of Lake Washington Boulevard will be closed to motorized vehicles from 10 a.m. Saturday to 6 p.m. Sunday.

“Seattle Parks and Recreation invites everyone in the community to bike, jog or stroll along the boulevard between the Seward Park entrance and Mount Baker Park’s beach during these times and to opt outside for health, recreation and fun!” said AP Diaz, Superintendent of Seattle Parks and Recreation, “and ask that drivers be cautious of pedestrians and obey all signage during the closures.”   

Local access: People driving to homes along the boulevard because they live there, are visiting, or making deliveries are allowed from the nearest cross street.  

Parking lots are open and will be accessible from the nearest cross street (see parking details and map below).  

The 2024 event dates are:
Saturday, May 18 – Sunday, May 19  

Saturday, May 25 – Sunday, May 26  

Saturday, June 15 – Sunday, June 16

    It’s almost like whoever designed that graphic didn’t want us to be able to read the dates.

    Question: what about disabled people that enjoy the lake and can only get to parking lots on the lake by cars with cains and wheel chairs and now its closed on some weekends to people that cant walk or bicycle.

      You can still drive there.
