Bikes and Bagels!

SDOT and Commute Seattle recently teamed up for “Bikes and Bagels,” an event to celebrate biking as part of Bike Everywhere Month. A steady stream of bike riders met up at McGraw Square downtown for coffee, bagels, and an opportunity to chat directly with Seattle transportation staff.

People shared lots of great feedback with SDOT, including ideas for future projects, best practices to maintain cycle access at construction projects, and general thoughts about biking throughout the city.

Whether you’re a biking newbie or a veteran, SDOT has a host of bike resources for you. Commute Seattle has also been hard at work throughout the month, offering bike tune-ups at Bike Month transportation fairs, and hosting other events, like a free, online Bike Commuting 101 Seminar.

If you missed “Bikes and Bagels,” don’t worry, there’s still plenty of time to participate in Bike Everywhere Day and Bike Everywhere Month! Get started on becoming a regular bike rider or get more bike information here.
