I’ve mentioned in previews that I’m not very good at guessing distances for park walking paths. My method consists solely of visualizing my junior high’s quarter-mile running track, and then trying to decide if a path I walked is longer or shorter than going around the track. I think we can all agree this is an unreliable method for judging distance.
Have you ever wanted to take a scenic walk or bike ride on a Seattle street without having to dodge vehicle traffic? Then Bicycle Sundays are for you.
From May through September, Lake Washington Boulevard becomes a promenade on select Sundays. The road is closed to motorized traffic from 10 am to 6 pm. You can saunter, jog, run, skate, or cycle along the lake between Mount Baker Beach and Seward Park. Take the family. Take a picnic. See two Seattle parks in one recreational outing.
