The proposed two-year levy, on Tuesday’s ballot, could be renewed every couple of years to build follow-up routes, until as many as 20 bike and pedestrian routes crisscross the whole city, Mayor Joan McGilton said.

The movement of bike-riders in the Seattle area can be considered a response to a failing economy and rising prices in energy. Surely a biking lifestyle can save spending extra on your insurance premium for heavy driving habits.

Burien’s two-year levy would fund:

• A paved trail on Eighth Avenue South from South 136th Street to South 128th Street, where families now walk on thin grass shoulders to Cedarhurst Elementary School.

• In-road bicycle lanes, and sidewalks where needed, along 136th from busy Ambaum Boulevard Southwest to the city limit at Des Moines Memorial Drive South.
