Bike News Roundup: National bikelash highlights

It’s time for the Bike News Roundup! I’m in St. Louis visiting family this week, so that’s why news here is a bit slow. But here’s a long list of interesting stuff to read. And if I missed anything, this is an open thread.

    So SDOT has officially renamed the (soon to be not) Missing Link to the Ballard Multimodal Corridor:

    They’re still moving forward with the terrible “compromise” route on Market St.

    • Dylan says:

      Are they already building the Market part of the missing link? The superior court ruling doesn’t affect that part of the project right?

      • Ballard Biker says:

        The City compromised with the litigious businesses on Market St, regardless of the Courts or the EIS findings. The businesses went back on the agreement and sued, but the City kept the compromise route, even though Courts and EIS will soon clear the way for a 54th trail.

    “This will be easier on a bike trail.”
