I Bike SEA

 

I Bike SEA is about making cycling a normal form of transportation. It’s about discovering that you don’t have to be a ‘cyclist’ to go by bike. I Bike SEA invites you to join a two week “shift” to fun and inclusive cycling for everyone. Residents (especially you, ladies) are being recruited who’d like to try bike commuting for the first time, who’d like to bike commute more, and even those who bike commute a lot. Throughout the two week shift, neighborhood bike pools to and from North Seattle and Downtown are being arranged. Support and social get-togethers will happen throughout the two weeks—from cycling fashion tips to free basic bike maintenance to urban cycling pointers. This fun, experimental pilot project is brought to you by the Bicycle Alliance of Washington with funding support from the  Seattle’s Office of Sustainability and Environment.

Join the fun and come to the I Bike SEA kick-off event on September 6 at 5:30 PM at Nord Alley in Pioneer Square located at 314 First Ave S. There will be refreshments, inspiration, and free basic bike maintenance. Bike pools back to North Seattle will leave at 6:30, 7:00, and 7:30 PM.

I Bike SEA is a natural fit with policies and actions included in SDOT’s 2012 Action Agenda and the current Bicycle Master Plan (BMP) update. We want to make healthy travel choices the easy choices. SDOT is about half way through the public engagement process for the BMP update. Read about what we’ve heard so far in the August 1 BMP Update PowerPoint presentation given to the Seattle Bicycle Advisory Board. Also, you can sign up to be on our BMP Update ListServ to receive information on public workshops planned for early November.

Happy cycling!
