Bicycle Sundays begin this weekend

Seattle's tradition of closing part of Lake Washington Boulevard to motorized vehicles on warm-season Sundays begins May 1 and continues through September.

Warmer weather is on its way, and a sign of the season is this weekend's debut of Seattle's summer-long schedule of Bicycle Sundays.

On Bicycle Sundays, a 40-year Seattle tradition, a level, lakefront stretch of Lake Washington Boulevard is closed to motorized traffic and reserved for bicycles, tricycles, skaters, walkers — what have you — from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The closure is from Mount Baker Beach, .4-mile south of Interstate 90, to the entrance to Seward Park, three miles distant.

There is limited parking at Mount Baker Beach and Seward Park.

The cycling-day closures will continue each Sunday through September, with these exceptions: May 16, June 20, July 4, Aug. 8 and Aug. 15. There will be one Bicycle Monday, on July 5.

A reminder: Bicycling helmets are required by Seattle law. Cascade Bicycle Club will offer helmets for a discounted price of $10 at Seward Park 1-4 p.m. every Bicycle Sunday.
