Fit & Fun
It’s a summer tradition that has been rolling along for nearly 50 years: a stretch of Lake Washington Boulevard gets closed to motorized vehicles on select Sundays. Today, June 29, is one of those days.
During each “Bicycle Sunday,” 2.5-miles south of Mount Baker Beach to the Seward Park entrance are closed to cars from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The Cascade Bicycle Club has been instrumental in keeping the opportunity alive.
