Tonight is the Seattle Likes Bike ride!
On Monday, June 2, we will meet at Westlake Center at 6pm, then ride together at 6:30pm along this route. The first half of the route consists of a loop around the South Lake Union Trolley (aka S.L.U.T.) tracks, as well as following the signed route along 9th Ave N that the city has suggested as an alternative to Westlake.
The second half of the ride, up Eastlake, is along one of the proposed routes for streetcar expansion service, and leads us to the College Inn Pub (near the University of Washington), where we plan to convene so we can meet all of you, eat chili, drink something cold, and talk about bicycle advocacy in Seattle as look to the coming year of riding bikes!
Seattle cyclists are everywhere in this beautiful weather and the city is making progress in terms of including cyclists in street-planning, but Westlake Ave N still lacks adequate signage, bike lanes continue to be striped in door zones, and cyclists on the road continue to face a lack of driver education as to cyclists’ rights, including what sharrows markings really indicate (they are visual on-road reminders to all that cyclists always have a right to the road unless otherwise indicated).
Please join us as we celebrate the successes of last summer, and plan for the next year!
