UPDATE September 25th, 2019
The bike plan meetings and timeline information below has changed. The schedule has been extended into 2020 to allow other planning work to be finished before completion of this plan. The City of Chelan has planning studies currently underway that make recommendations for trails and active transportation improvements that will be incorporated into this plan when they are complete.

About the Plan

The Lake Chelan Valley Bike Plan will develop a long-term vision for bicycling in the Lake Chelan Valley. This effort will be guided by the Chelan-Douglas Transportation Council (CDTC) with community input and guidance from local stakeholders in Chelan, Manson and surrounding areas. The Lake Chelan Valley has a number of existing planning documents and studies that address bicycling and this process will pull them all together into one document for the region.

This will be a stakeholder driven planning process completed over a series of meetings.

About CDTC

CDTC is responsible for regional transportation planning. Our work includes planning for active transportation, including bicycling and walking. We recently updated the Wenatchee Valley Bicycle Master Plan in 2018 and now our bicycle planning focus will shift to the Lake Chelan Valley area.

This plan will become a supporting document to the regional transportation plan – Transportation 2040. The CDTC Governing Board has supported the development of regional bike plans to connect our communities with safe and comfortable cycling routes that will provide residents with alternative and economical transportation options.
