Happy Halloween from the Family Ride kids!

Quite unintentionally, my kids’ Halloween costumes have mirrored improvements to Seattle bike infrastructure over the last few years:

2010: Old style man-in-a-house sharrow (and mail carrier)

2011: Bike box and [winged] bike lane man icon

2012: Neighborhood Greenways

Halloween 2012: Neighborhood Greenways

I guess this should have been the year of the bi-directional cycle track, but the kids have decided to come up with their own non-bikey costume concepts.

The nationally-focused Alliance for Biking and Walking have collected other transportation-themed costumes on Facebook. Are you dressed as something bike-related or have you costumed your bike?

    I didn’t dress up this year, but I did carve a greenways pumpkin! :)

      I figured that was yours, Andres! It’s the best!

    I am so glad you shared the link to Alliance for Biking and Walking. I found the “road diet” and “bike lobby” to be especially hilarious, but it took me a few minutes to catch on to all those bike puns… However, I think my favorite from the bunch is your little mail carrier!
