“Pedal with Decision Makers” Bike Ride

Bicycle Alliance of Washington will lead a short ride around NE Seattle neighborhoods immediately following the November 13 Livable Streets Workshop.  Join City Council members Tom Rasmussen, Richard Conlin, Sally Clark, and other invited elected officials and decision makers to visit areas discussed during the workshop.  This is a chance to ride with local officials to review ideas for improvements that can be made to encourage cycling within the community.  Meet at Gould Hall at 1:30 p.m. for a 2 p.m. departure.  We will return to Gould Hall by 4 p.m.  Please RSVP to barbc@bicyclealliance.org if you plan to join the ride.  In the event of rain, Seattle Children’s will provide a van for a drive-about of the route.
