U.S. Bicycle Route System in Washington

The U.S. Bicycle Route System in Washington (pdf 2 mb) is a network of regionally-significant bike routes that connect communities throughout Washington State. These AASHTO recognized routes make both interstate and international connections.

Currently, Washington State has nearly 700 miles of U.S. Bike Routes already designated by AASHTO. WSDOT, Cascade Bicycle Club-Washington Bikes, local agencies, regional planning organizations, and community groups continue to identify additional routes.

U.S. Bicycle Route Planning and Designations

Identifying U.S. Bike Routes begins at the local level. Grassroots route planning and coordination are key to identifying safe and connected U.S. Bike Routes. It all starts with bringing together local stakeholders which may include bike groups, local agencies, economic development representatives, and interested citizens, among others.  WSDOT and Cascade Bicycle Club-Washington Bikes encourages local leadership in completing the entire U.S. Bike Route System in Washington State, but also offers technical assistance to help make it happen. Adventure Cycling Association provides additonal information about the U.S. Bike Route System. If you are interested in helping to complete Washington's U.S. Bike Route System, or if you have questions about U.S. Bike Routes in Washington, please contact:
