Bike Smart

Bike Smart LogoHow much do you know about getting around Seattle on your bike?

With the City of Seattle committed to becoming the most bicycle-friendly city in the country, the Seattle Department of Transportation has launched BikeSmart. BikeSmart has two primary goals: to encourage more people to ride their bicycle and to improve bicycle safety. These goals were written into the Seattle Bicycle Master Plan:

  • Increase use of bicycling in Seattle for all trip purposes. Triple the amount of bicycling in Seattle by 2017.
  • Improve safety of bicyclists throughout Seattle. Reduce the rate of bicycle crashes by 2017.

Follow the links below or on the sidebar to learn more about the types of bicycle facilities SDOT has installed on our streets, to request a bike map, or read the rules of the road.
