Bike Vashon

Welcome to Bike Vashon, a web site & an informal organization of Vashon bicyclists.

Thanks to Coby Vardy of the Vashon Storefront Architecture Project for this great depiction of Vashon spirit

Stewart Putnam and Dodd Johnson out measuring the deviation from state and federal guidelinesYou might have noticed with dismay the recent unannounced installation of rumble strips on a major portion of Vashon Highway. We were able to halt the project before even more damage was done, but are now working with the county to mitigate that damage to all of Vashon's roadway users. Learn how you can help out on our short term goal!

Bicycle Friendly Vashon is our long range goal. We are working with the community plus the county to have Vashon recognized as a  into a model community for all roadway users. Integrating the national Complete Streets and Bicycle Friendly Community efforts, we believe we already have a good start on this - and the active support of the community.

34thDistrictLegSupport.121128Thanks to Senator Sharon Nelson, Representative Eileen Cody & Representative Joe Fitzgibbon for endorsing the current Vashon Island School District application for Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) funding of Vashon Safe Route to School (SR2S) Program application.

Vashon’s Dr. Martha Johnson is working with VISD’s Michael Soltman & staff, King County’s Susan Oxholm and WSDOT’s Safe Routes to School Coordinator, Charlotte Claybrooke, to move Vashon’s applications forward. Although we’re a relatively small community, Vashon’s strong support for SR2S is helping maintain our application’s competitiveness!
