Bellevue (WA) seeks to close “missing link” for bicycle riders

You hear a lot about the “missing link” on the Burke Gilman Trail, but there’s also a “missing link” in the Mountains to Sound Greenway trail as it passes through the Eastgate and Factoria sections of Bellevue.

The city of Bellevue is presenting its latest conceptual design plans to close that link with a 3.6-mile bicycle and pedestrian trail on the south side of Interstate 90 on Wednesday.

The city staff is inviting feedback on its planned route. You can see the general layout of the proposed trail, proposed cross sections and other designs from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday (Sept. 26) at Saint Andrew’s Lutheran Church, 2650 148th Ave. SE.

This being a picture-perfect day in Seattle, I figured I’d head out to a perfect picture-taking location for the halfway point of 30 Days of Biking.

At left, you can see a cyclist in yellow jersey admiring the view after completing the 1.75-mile crossing. Those are the snow-capped Cascade Mountains in the background. ….

Enjoying the bike ride across Lake Washington

Sometimes I take for granted some of the great bicycling assets right in my own back yard.

One of those is the bike lane across the Interstate 90 Lake Washington bridge that links Seattle with the Eastside suburbs.

The proper name is the Homer M. Hadley Memorial Bridge, and the bike lane has been part of the bridge since it opened in 1989.

I discovered this bike lane on the westbound floating bridge soon after moving here 11 years ago. I use it on my occasional bike rides into Seattle or down to the ferry terminals for rides on the Olympic Peninsula.

Hundreds of bike commuters use it daily ….
