    Of course, it’s completely inconceivable for this weekend’s tunnel ride to have a south-end start option for people living in West Seattle, with result being a lot of unnecessary driving and parking in downtown Seattle.

    The water taxi doesn’t run weekends, so the only non-car options are to either add an additional 16 miles round trip, which covers largely the same terrain as the ride itself, or ride a bus, which can only hold a maximum of 3 bikes per bus running every 15 minutes, or 12 bikes per hour.

    An alternate starting point, say, the parking lot under the West Seattle bridge, would go a long way, and also help better distribute the crowds and increase capacity. The exit ramp from 99 southbound to Spokane St. could be used as both the entrance and exit.
