Weekend Guide: Messquerade, 39th Ave NE greenway opening + more

Looks like everything cool this weekend is happening on a bike. But then again, isn’t that how every weekend goes? Here’s a look at some highlights from the Seattle Bike Blog Events Calendar:

Messmann’s Messquerade – Saturday

A Halloween Costumed Bicycle Team Scavenger Hunt and Costume contest. This year’s Messquerade will consist of teams 2 or more people. Your team will have to scavenger all over the cities core for clues to the hints to find the answers to the correct scavenger questions from the Manifesto of the Dead, so have your wits about you and make your manifesto readable. Manifests will be on a points system and each answer will have a point value. Only one team with the highest points will win.

Registration will be in the Belltown Underground (2407 1st Ave — Alley Entrance off Wall Street). This is also where the after party / finish line is. Registration from 6-8PM. Hunt starts at 8. You have two hours to complete your manifesto.

39th Ave NE Neighborhood Greenway opening – Friday

Though several planned neighborhood greenways have been delayed, including projects in Ballard and West Seattle, one promising neighborhood greenway is almost complete in Northeast Seattle. Neighbors, supporters and Seattle Children’s will celebrate the grand opening of the route October 26 with a Halloween-themed Friday morning bike ride.

The route is funded by Seattle Children’s at part of their $4 million Liveable Streets Initiative.

More details from the event invite (h/t Wedgwood Community Council):

Greenway, Bike Train and Treats!

WHAT: Join neighbors, parents and students to cut the ribbon on the new Greenway on 39th Avenue NE and ride the Thorton Creek Elementary ‘Bike Train’ to the school

WHERE: The south terminal of the Greenway: Corner of 39th Avenue NE/NE 52nd Street and the Burke Gilman Trail

WHEN: Friday October 26th at 8:15am
WHY: To welcome a new way to get around our neighborhood TREATS: YES! Donuts will be provided by Top Pot
COSTUMES: YES! It’s almost Halloween!

Ballard Family Bike Ride – Sunday

Meet at the Ballard Commons Park (5701 22nd Ave NW) at 10 a.m. on Sunday, October 28 to ride along with us as we learn more about this exciting project. We’ll first explore the west side of the Greenway to see how it links with the Burke Gilman Trail, pass by the Ballard Library, then explore the east side of the Greenway before returning to the Ballard Commons and on to the Ballard Farmer’s Market. Volunteers from the Ballard Greenway will be on hand to answer questions about the project.

The ride is short (approximately 2 miles) to accommodate our younger family members. We will encounter gentle hills, roundabouts, marked and unmarked intersections, uneven and cracked pavement, traffic lights, and a bike lane. This means that it will be a perfect opportunity to teach our emerging urban cyclists about how to successfully navigate these elements in a supportive and fun environment.

Budget hearing – Thursday

Seattle Neighborhood Greenways is mobilizing a big turn out to let the Council and the City know that there is a huge broad based support for Greenway funding. Please attend if you can and wear GREEN. There is a lot on the agenda so we likely won’t get a chance to be heard until closer to 7PM. Bring your kids if you can!
