The City of Lynnwood hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday to celebrate the completion of the first phase of construction in the regional Bike2Health project, a collaborative effort to complete 11 critical missing links of the existing regional bicycle network in south Snohomish County.

This segment of the project included a green way-finding sign. The path is near the Lynnwood Transit Center (20100 48th Ave. W.), on the west side of the 44th Avenue West Bike/Pedestrian Bridge.

Bike2Health will offer opportunities for community members in Lynnwood, Edmonds and Mountlake Terrace to learn more about safe cycling through bike rodeos for children and other engagement opportunities during the next three years.

The next bike rodeo is just around the corner at the Health & Fitness Expo taking place on Saturday, May 20 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Edmonds School District Stadium, 7600 212th St. S.W. in Edmonds.

  1. Thanks for the added safety in taking our bikes onto the streets around us.
    And for connecting the ‘missing pieces’ of bike paths for us all.
