“Your excellency,” it turns out.
Ahhh, we’re less formal — in address, attire and transportation mode — than your usual ambassador. Cascade Bicycle Ambassadors are friendly, knowledgeable cyclists who are armed with maps and safety brochures. They’re itching to talk to you about safe riding, commuting options, and the services and classes that Cascade offers.
You can catch a Bike Ambassador tabling at many farmers’ markets this summer, including Madrona, Columbia City, Wallingford, Georgetown, Ballard and Magnolia. You might run into the team when you’re grabbing groceries after work at Madison Market, Fremont PCC, and the Westlake Whole Foods.
Every Friday this summer, during evening rush hour, Cascade Bike Ambassadors will be stationed somewhere on a bike trail. Last month they were on the Burke-Gilman near University Village, and this month they will set up on the Elliott Bay Trail. Stop by and say hello on your way home! Chat about the latest developments in the bike world, grab a map, meet your fellow commuters.
That’s not all. Bicycle Ambassadors roll out at Bicycle Sundays at Seward Park, transportation and safety fairs, Summer Streets events, Friday Night Racing at the Velodrome, and more. You’re sure to run into one. Give them your two cents! Curtsys not required.
