Official: $20M in projects could make Bellingham state's No. 1 bicycling town

More people per capita bicycle to work in Bellingham than in Seattle. Officials expect even more bicyclists on the street after the City Council approves a new master plan with more than $20 million in bike-friendly road projects.

"Bellingham already has one of the highest bicycling and walking rates in the entire state," consultant Peter Lagerwey told the council on Monday, Aug. 11. "So when you implement this plan, you're just going to blow everybody off the charts and be No. 1."
