Tuesday: Ride with SBAB for a SE Seattle bikeability tour

Southeast Seattle desperately needs ambitious, family-friendly biking and walking routes. Tomorrow, you are invited to join the Seattle Bicycle Advisory Board and a slew of other biking and neighborhood organizations for a two-hour biking tour from the Mountains-to-Sound Trail to Brighton to Beacon Hill.

Rainier Valley is possibly the best candidate for a neighborhood greenway in the city (and there are lots of good ones!). Aside from the dream of a protected cycle facility on Rainier Ave, there is a popular signed bike route (dubbed “the zig-zag route” by many) that Tuesday’s ride will mostly stick to. With some enhancements for safety and ease of use, the route (or something similar) could be very successful at improving the bikeability of the valley.

From Cascade (RSVP here):

    This is likely to be one really really wet and windy ride tonight.

    No mention of the bikeability tour of Queen Anne/Interbay? http://blog.cascade.org/2012/05/two-bikeability-tours-coming/
    I hope there’s no bias!
