The eighth annual Lake to Lake Bike Ride on Saturday, June 8 will provide riders of all levels and abilities with an opportunity to experience Bellevue by bicycle. Riders can choose between three routes:
- a mostly flat, approximately nine-mile Greenbelt loop perfect for families and less experienced cyclists;
- a more challenging, 22-mile Lake to Lake loop with some climbs; and
- a new, free kids ride.
