Over 100,000 people are expected to attend Hempfest this weekend in Myrtle Edwards Park, Friday, Aug. 19 through Sunday Aug. 21.
Bicyclists will need to dismount and walk bicycles through Myrtle Edwards and Centennial Parks (approximately 1.5 miles). If you are not actually going to Hempfest this weekend, you may want to use an alternative route:
Urban confident: Ride the bus/bike lanes on Elliot
Multi-modal: Throw your bike on the bus to avoid foot and car traffic. Routes 15, 18, 19, 24 and 33 ply this corridor.
Low traffic with big gears: Up and around western Queen Anne.
If you have a suggested route, please post it in the comments.
Bicyclists should expect trail impacts following the event from break-down and clean-up, possible through Wednesday. Crews will NOT be working between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. to minimize impacts on the morning commute.
