Well, summer is supposed to start one of these days, which means three months of great cycling weather. While there’s a whole season of biking to look forward to, there’s an opportunity you shouldn’t pass up right now: get your voice heard in the update of the Seattle Bicycle Master Plan.
The Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) still has two great online tools available for collecting your opinion and gathering data on what Seattle needs in version 2.0 of our bike plan. As we have written before, there’s a short survey on bicycling in Seattle, as well as an online mapping tool where you can record all of your preferred routes, as well as areas that you know need improvement.
The survey and mapping tools are only available through the end of the month, so please take advantage of them while you can. Also, please pass them on to others you know – even (especially!) if they don’t bike. SDOT wants to hear from everybody during this public outreach effort, including those that haven’t yet felt comfortable enough to pedal around town.
So before SDOT hunkers down for the summer to produce some new materials, get your opinions heard and help us create a bold and visionary plan for bicycling in Seattle.
