FamilyRide: Save the date for disaster

Seattle Disaster Relief TrialsWhat would happen if a major earthquake hit the Seattle Fault, causing roads to collapse and public transit to shut down? Portland explored how bicycles could help in just such a scenario during last year’s Disaster Relief Trials and more recently in the real world, bikes played a big role in Sandy relief.

We in Seattle will climb from the wreckage of our own mock earthquake on Friday, June 21st at 3:00 p.m. The event is part of Bicycle Urbanism Symposium and registration will be available soon at the event’s website.

Here’s a video from last year in, of course, Portland:

    I watched this whole video last year and it seems like a trailer, is actually easier to move around serious blocking things because it splits the load. However I want a Larry vs Harry c/ battery assist and would prefer for a disaster to just load/unload it. And a the cargo bikes with the long wheel base seem the least expensive and the more general purpose. Oh well.
