Bridging with Bikes
During much of May and July, the I-90 Bridge will be undergoing repairs and traffic is expected to be backed up much more than usual. Although some may decide that waiting in traffic for an hour is inevitable, you’ve got the inside scoop on a far better solution: the bicycle.
Want to get to work on time? The I-90 bike trail is open during the construction!
Our Bridging with Bikes Program will support commutersnew and veteran alikewho decide to take on the bridge to avoid congestion, save time and build in a healthier routine that can last all year long.
Join us for Breakfast on (near) the Bridge!
We’ll be thanking bicycle commuters for riding (and, perhaps, making car drivers jealous) with coffee and snacks from 6-9 a.m. on Fridays during construction (July 10, 17, and 24). We’ll be on the west side of Mercer Island, right along the trail, just west of West Mercer Way in the grassy I-90 Park on the Lid. Stop by to fuel up, greet fellow riders on your way across, talk to Cascade Bicycle Club staff about your commuting questions, or meet up with a bike pilot.
Ride with a Bike Pilot!
Not sure how to get from A to B? A Bike Pilot can guide you to your destination! Stop by the booth for a guided ride to destinations such as Mercer Island, Downtown Seattle, the U-District and Bellevue.
Are you an experienced rider who would be willing to pilot a new commuter? Contact us to volunteer your navigational services.
