The Cascade Bicycle Club is conducting a South Snohomish County online bicycle survey to learn fabout barriers to bicycling, important bike routes/destinations, and the types of bicycle improvements that would encourage people to bicycle more.
The survey is located here.
The Cascade Bicycle Club recently was awarded funding through the Verdant Health Commission to build on the work underway in South Snohomish County to establish bicycling as a safe and attractive transportation and recreation option for families, commuters and tourists alike. With the Commission’s support, over the next two years, Cascade will work with city planners, elected leaders, businesses and the community to lay the foundation for each jurisdiction to make bicycling available to people of all ages and abilities throughout South Snohomish County.
The club kicked off its work in South Snohomish County, specifically in Edmonds, Mountlake Terrace, Lynnwood and Bothell. Representatives have met with city staff to learn about the efforts in each jurisdiction to improve people’s ability to travel by bike.
In Edmonds, for example, the City is working to create a safe bicycle route connecting from the Interurban Trail into the heart of downtown Edmonds with key projects underway to realize this connection. Meanwhile, among other bicycle projects, the city of Mountlake Terrace (recent adopters of a Complete Streets ordinance) is working to complete the Lakeview Trail, connecting to the Mountlake Terrace Transit Center and future light rail station. And Lynnwood is working to complete two critical missing links in the Interurban Trail network.
The first phase of the Verdant work is focused on building relationships with city staff, community organizations and the business community in addition to learning from the community about key barriers to bicycling and opportunities for improvement.
