Connect Seattle

Connect Seattle is a long-term citywide campaign to create a complete network of bikeways connecting neighborhoods across the city so everyone can ride safely. The campaign is powered by a network of neighborhood teams led by teams of caring neighbors working together.

Connect Seattle's long-term priority is to secure funding to build 250 miles of new protected bike lanes, neighborhood greenways, and trails in the next decade. Our short-term priorities include important projects in Ballard, Downtown, Northgate, Portage Bay, Rainier Valley and the Westlake Corridor.

Connect Seattle Summit

On Saturday, January 31 (Noon-3 p.m.), the Connect Seattle teams and all bike activists in Seattle are invited to attend the Connect Seattle Summit to set Cascade's grassroots organizing priorities for the year. Click here to learn more and to RSVP >>
