Come by foot, car or bus to pedal on the Sammamish River Trail on a Trek Cruiser Classic at Marymoor Park in Redmond, the newest site for the national Dasani Blue Bikes community bicycle program. If you don’t have a bike of your own or don’t want to transport your bike to the park, the free rental “cruisers” are a great way to explore the scenic, flat Sammamish River Trail’s 11-mile route from the park. At Blyth Park in Bothell, the paved trail connects with the Burke-Gilman trail.
King County residents 18 and older can sign up for a card that opens storage lockers near the park’s Velodrome during daylight hours to check out a free rental bike. A photo ID is all that’s required to sign up for the cards at the Marymoor Park Scheduling Office, open 9:30 a.m-3 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Riders are required to bring their own helmets to ride the one-speed, pedal-brake bikes, and are asked to return the bikes before dusk.
Twenty bikes are available in 19- and 21-inch frame sizes with adjustable seats. The program celebrated its grand opening last week and, so far, availability of bikes has been good.
