    The 9th annual Lake to Lake Bike Ride, presented by the City of Bellevue and Overlake Medical Center & Clinics.

    Saturday, June 11, 8 a.m.-1 p.m.

    Explore Bellevue's hidden treasures and award winning park system by bike, on this non-competitive ride. The ride utilizes low traffic roads, bike lanes and part of the Lake-to-Lake trail (non-technical gravel) and traverses much of the City. Greenbelt Loop - mostly flat 8 mile route; Lake Loop - more challenging 24 mile route with significant elevation gain. The course is well-marked and supported by staff and volunteers. Riders under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Routes are approximately 80 percent paved road and 20 percent small gravel.

    Afterwards, enjoy a post-ride party with prize giveaways, and a free kids ride in the park for children 8 and under. 

    Proceeds benefit the City of Bellevue's youth camp scholarship fund.

      Past participants have ridden these courses on all types of bikes. Over the 8 year duration of the ride, past participants tell us they prefer a cyclo cross adventure type bike with tires with some traction or a mountain bike.  The event will have bike mechanics on site at the start to assist with safety checks and minor repairs. All riders must wear helmets.

      Here are some of our favorite sections of the courses. Share your favorites with #COBLK2LK

      If you do choose to ride on your own, or with members of your household, remember that “Ride SMART” principles advised by Cascade Bike Club, still apply.

      We encourage you to follow these safety tips:

      • Wear a helmet. 
      • Make sure your bike is in good working order. Check out this article in the Seattle Times, or go to one of our long-time supporters, Gregg’s Bike shop
      • Dress for the weather. 
      • Be visible, wear brightly colored clothing. 
      • Tell a friend or family member where you are riding. 
      • Take your phone. 
      • Bring a family member. 
      • Remember to physically distance. 
      • When stopping, pull to the side of the trail or road. 

      We will continue to add more of our favorite places on the courses. Enjoy your ride!
