Making Sense of Bellingham’s Bike Lanes

The Bellingham Bike Lanes and Bike Boxes have been around for well over a year now. Are you still trying to make sense of them and their symbols? You are not alone.  We are here to offer some help and clarification to keep everyone safe on the roads.

According to the City of Bellingham, “Bellingham is created a safe, well-connected network to encourage bicycling by all members of our community. The network includes new facilities to make it safer and easier for bicyclists and motorists to share our city streets.”
