Seattle Bike Blog has arrived

SeattleBikeBlog.com is your new comprehensive source for local bike news and commentary. While bike culture and bike racing are certainly necessary aspects of Seattle bike news, this site will mostly focus on issues facing anyone who uses the bicycle for transportation. The site will report about bike infrastructure, laws, activism, safety, fun events, interesting projects and whatever else Seattle bicyclists might need or want to know.

The site will also provide a forum for discussing bike issues. With thoughtful research and reporting, discussions will hopefully be able to dig deeper than the typical car vs. bike debate that takes over so many online discussions elsewhere.

Let me introduce myself. My name is Tom Fucoloro (résumé), and I am the founder/editor/designer of the site. I recently quit my day job to attempt to launch a career as a writer. My goal is to post an average of 4-5 posts per day throughout the day. Posts will range from investigative, long pieces to lighter, short commentary pieces about something I read/heard/thought/whatever.

I ride a 1983 Nishiki International road bike I bought on Craigslist for $175. It’s not the flashiest bike, but I love it and it gets me everywhere. I will not claim to be a gear nut or expert bike mechanic, but I have friends who are. I attempt to do my own bike maintenance (though I always seem to be behind), and I am constantly learning. I am a bike user and reporter, but not an expert.

Thank you for reading. If you want to follow along, subscribe to the RSS feed, follow @seabikeblog on Twitter or just come back whenever you’ve got time.

If you would like to discuss writing for the blog or have any feedback/thoughts/story ideas for the site, email me and we can talk.

    Of course you would start something awesome like this. Certainly I’ll be keeping an eye on this, to better prepare for the day I finally do move to Seattle with my Olmo. Have I told you I’m selling my car?

      That’s great news! And Seattle is a great city to not own a car…

      I don’t think I’ve ever ridden an Olmo. Sounds like a sweet ride, though.

  2. I am impressed with how much bike news you manage to find. I never knew that there was so much to be aware of! Keep it up!

  4. […] hard to believe that Seattle Bike Blog is already three years old! The official first post went live July 8, 2010, promising to “report about bike infrastructure, laws, activism, […]

  5. […] my earliest posts can make me cringe (lots of “bikers” vs “drivers” talk), my introductory post is still pretty much spot on. I still consider myself a journalist who rides a bike, not an expert […]
