SR 99 Tunnel project crews will close the bike/pedestrian shared-use path under the Alaskan Way Viaduct between Yesler Way and South Washington Street Monday to Friday, Dec. 10 to 14, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Bicyclists are directed to merge with vehicle traffic under the viaduct.
They didn’t steer reindeer, but they had plenty of red lights to show the way. And yellow, white, green and blue ones, too!
A trio of Critical Lasses, Jennifer, Madi and Robin took the sleigh by the reins on Sunday evening, and, through fog and mist, lead a cheerful Critical Lass ride to take in the fantastic holiday lights of Olympic Manor:
Meet at Loyal Heights Community Center, ride in and around Seattle’s festive Olympic Manor. It will be dark out, so make sure your bike is equipped with lights. Extra lights are even better if you want to glow with holiday cheer–*we’ll* be part of the holiday light display. The brighter and more colorful, the merrier (and safer!). We’ll wrap up at Grumpy D’s (7001 15th Ave NW) for warm drinks. Children in trailers, bike seats, and on trailer bikes are welcome!
Here’s Kevin’s trip report, along with a map of the ride. And here’s a video of the evening:
Looking for another easy-going, festive ride? On Tuesday, Bill is leading Afternoon Lite/Reindeer,etc.
This Saturday, Al takes Spokespeople on a Ride to Lake Forest Park Bakeries, Shops, and More.
That’s just a sampling. We’ve got a full range of distances and paces on our Daily Rides Calendar. Check back often, as rider leaders post rides throughout the week.
Imagine riding the city on a network of cycle tracks, protected bikeways and safer streets and bridges. Together, we *will* make it happen. http://www.cascade.org/give
It does not matter that I don’t speak Danish. I know what he’s saying.
When I go to Denmark, I’ll be riding a bus. Well, if you can get me off of a bicycle. I hear they give out hugs to people on bikes.
As the city of Seattle looks toward building more protected bikeways like other cities are doing across North America, KING5 rode along with Evan Manvel to see what it looks to ride on urban roadways. They also visited the Linden Ave. complete streets project, which includes a new, but not yet finished, protected cycletrack.
