    Gov Inslee,… “we need more carbon in bikes and less in the atmosphere”
    Thanks Chuck Ayers for your service and leadership! Over 900 attendees.

  2. Ellie P. says:

    I wasn’t there but I believe they handed out plaques to some companies who were recently BizCycle certified (including mine… Gold level. Woot!)

  3. Eli says:

    As frustrating as our current infrastructure can be, it is incredibly inspiring to see that our leadership gets the importance of separated infrastructure.

  4. Al Dimond says:

    McGinn promises a cycling network downtown… but SDOT just released a revised Broad Street design with the originally planned bike lane removed, on a stretch of road designated for an in-street bike facility in the draft BMP.

  5. Bob says:

    It’s not enough to have the Governor make jokes about carbon bikes and the mayor promising a network of downtown cycle tracks. If that’s really a promise, *get it in writing*. Cyclists need to stop being satisfied by lip service, which is all we get.

    A highlight for me was all the recognition of the importance of families and kids on bikes. The entire session opened with the lights turning down and a cute short DIY video of a biker kid expressing his enthusiasm for biking! Then several speakers mentioned the needs of kids and families, and the “Three Stories from the Road” video included a feature on Loyal Heights parent Shannon Koller and the Urban Cycling Club that I wrote about here on Seattle Bike Blog a while back.

  7. Jonathan says:

    The PI reported on Jay Inslee’s remarks including his pitch in favor of the Columbia River Crossing project. Sour faces all around.
