2015 Annual Report At a Glance 2015 was an exceptional year for Cascade Bicycle Club. From the pivotal passing of the Move Seattle Levy to cementing our partnership with Washington Bikes by voting to merge to the successful completion of our capital campaign, Cascade made huge steps forward in improving lives through bicycling. It couldn’t have been done without our tremendous members, volunteers, staff and board. Education continued to grow and inspire more and more people to ride bicycles, with 24,600 students taught and a contract secured to reach EVERY third through fifth grade student in Seattle Public Schools with bicycle and pedestrian safety education. The Major Taylor Project expanded to 10 sites in four school districts, reaching 330 students who rode more than 47,000 miles. Cascade Events continued to break new ground, and new events like the Seattle Night Ride, Ride for Major Taylor and the Woodinville Wine Ride reached new audiences. Free Group Rides offerings also increased by 25 percent from 2014 to 2015. Membership exceeded 15,700 this year, and those who responded to our annual member survey gave an overwhelmingly positive response.

Thanks to generous Capital Campaign donors in 2015, this summer Cascade bike campers are enjoying the new Cascade Bicycling Center Traffic Garden!

We hit our Capital Campaign goal! This has transformed how we work and how we welcome folks — and the Cascade Bicycling Center expansion, to be completed in September 2016, will transform how our community learns to ride and gathers to bike. We transformed the region. Advocacy celebrated new milestone: the momentous passing of the $930 million Move Seattle Levy to invest

in better bikeways over the next nine years; the approved removal of Eastside railway to make room for the Cross Kirkland Corridor; and out of 40 races endorsed, the election of 36 bike-friendly leaders (Future endorsements will be carried out by Washington Bikes, now our 501(c)4 partner.) In a historic occasion, the merger with Washington Bikes was approved in December and

laid the groundwork to transform Cascade into a statewide advocacy and education organization, with a powerful partner in Washington Bikes. We’ve grown and succeeded tremendously in 2015, and your support makes it all possible. Here’s to a great 2016, and a momentous future of improving lives through bicycling statewide.
