In 2014 – 2017 the third Wednesday in June was proclaimed by the City of Tacoma Mayor as Walk Tacoma Day.  Since 2018, the month of June has been proclaimed Walk Tacoma Month.

Pedal with Politicians

In late 2020, some of your Tacoma City Council Members biked around Tacoma to get up close and personal with the existing (and missing) bike and trail networks in Tacoma. Since we can’t gather in person for a bike ride and discussion, their rides and stories are posted here as a Pedal with Politicians video blog series, so you can see the routes and neighborhoods that your elected officials traveled, and get more familiar with infrastructure and opportunities for bike advocacy.

The best way to advocate for bicycling in Tacoma is to get out and ride. And the best ways to encourage our local government to better our roads for people on bikes is to virtually ride “alongside” them, and send them your feedback about bike infrastructure and access throughout Tacoma!
