News Release


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Friday, May 12, 2017

Gear up for Lake to Lake Bike Ride

The Lake to Lake Bike ride on Saturday, June 3, will provide riders of all levels and abilities with an opportunity to experience Bellevue by bicycle. Riders can choose between two different routes -- a mostly flat, approximately eight-mile Greenbelt Loop perfect for families or less experienced cyclists, and a more challenging 22-mile Lake to Lake loop with some climbs.

To register, visit www.myParksandRecreation.com and enter activity code #117822 or call 425-452-6885. Space is limited, so preregistration is recommended. Pending availability, on-site registration will take place 8 to 9 a.m. on event day.

Both rides start between 9 and 10 a.m. at Lake Hills Community Park, 1200 164th Ave. SE. Terrain on both routes includes low-traffic roads, bike lanes and gravel trails. The course will be well-marked and supported by staff and volunteers until noon.

All riders under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult, and the event is not suggested for children under nine years old, unless riding in a trailer or tag-along.

The event will feature prize raffles, refreshments and freebies for all participants. All participants will receive an event T-shirt.

The cost is $15 per rider with preregistration, and $20 per rider on the day of event. Proceeds will benefit the City of Bellevue Youth Camp scholarship fund to help make healthy and fun recreation accessible to all kids.

Chaplin's Bellevue Subaru and Overlake Medical Center are the title sponsors. Event sponsors include the Bellevue Downtown Association, Choose Your Way Bellevue, Cycle the Wave, Skout Back Country, Zico Water, Soulcycle, Cascade Culture, John Duggan Cycling Attorney, Organic Valley, Therapeutic Associates, Crossroads Bellevue, Gregg’s Bellevue, Blue Steel, Whole Foods and State Farm agent Malinda Zampera.
