December bike stuff to do: Family biking advocacy workshop, Basic Bike Network ride + more

It’s real! Let’s ride on it together.

Sure, it’s December and the winter solstice is just around the corner, but don’t let anyone tell you to put your bike in the garage until spring. Seattle is a year-round biking town, and there’s still so much biking to do before the year is over.

Of course there are fundraisers. The Transit Riders Union are hosting a happy hour fundraiser 5:30–7:30 p.m. this evening at the Flatiron School. And Transportation Choices Coalition is hosting a happy hour fundraiser December 10.

And the US Cyclocross National Championship is in Lakewood December 10–15. We don’t usually write about racing events, but it’s not often that we get a national championship nearby.

  1. Has anyone else noticed that Lime bikes are now 29¢/ minute? It’s sad that what started as $1 per 30 minutes is now over $10 (after tax), but I understand wanting to make the business model sustainable. Hopefully Jump remains at 25¢ but I think that’s unlikely.
