Lime has been selected as the pilot project vendor in the City of Spokane starting September 4. Users need to download an app to rent a bike, e-bike or e-scooter, which top out at the 15 mph. Trail speed limit. You can find all the details at this website.

Please try out a Lime bike, tell your friends, share your feedback and enjoy!

Safety First
Have you responded to our Centennial Trail Wayfinding Survey?  If so, thank you! 
Civic pride for our Centennial Trail calls for better branding, don't you agree?
If not, please do so by August 31.  Your feedback will help implement safety and directional signs and asphalt markings on the Centennial Trail, as well as encourage Spokane County and municipalities to add signs from arterials to trailheads.

Recent walks on our Centennial Trail show such dry conditions and the need to mow back weeds in many places that grew quickly this spring. Given this extreme fire danger, our managing jurisdictions must proceed cautiously. As you enjoy the Trail, please keep an eye out for fire danger and call 911 immediately. And, thanks in advance for any garbage cleanup/stewardship you can provide. Hopefully our skies will be back to blue very soon. In the meantime, we remain grateful for the people and organizations dedicated to fire prevention and firefighting!

My best,  


Loreen McFaul, Executive Director
