Cascade points out that there are two good opportunities in the U District this week to speak up in support of biking. Considering how full UW’s bike parking is, it should be easy for some of you to bike over to the University Heights Center for one or both of these:
Tuesday, Jan. 25, 5:30 – 8 p.m.First on this week’s agenda is a Town Hall meeting with Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn, as part of the city’s Engage Seattle initiative. Here’s your chance to ask questions and tell the Mayor you’re all for bike lanes, safe bicycle parking on campus, convenient bike access to coming Link Light Rail stations or whatever U-District bike projects are most important to you.
5:30 – 6:30: Information tables from city departments and community organizations.
6:30 – 8:00: Open question and answer session with the Mayor and city staff.

North Link Light Rail Brooklyn Station Open House
University Heights Center, Second Floor Auditorium
Thursday, Jan. 27, 6 – 8 p.m.
Presentation begins at 6:30 p.m.
Next up is an opportunity to really delve into biking and light rail, specifically Link’s Brooklyn Station. Sound Transit will present design options for the station and is eager for cyclists to participate. Join us to let Sound Transit know that incorporating bicycles into station area planning translates into a big win for mobility, livability and community.
