Ryan Packer was the Temporary Editor of Seattle Bike Blog for the entire winter as I worked on completing the first draft of a book. During that time, they reported many important stories such as this report about an internal SDOT policy that would all but dismantle the Bicycle Master Plan. We spoke more about their time as Editor in a recap video back in April.
Ryan has since continued reporting for The Urbanist, but has also expanded to cover state transportation news, such as watching the reboot of the expanded I-5 Columbia River crossing between Vancouver, Washington, and Portland. Bike Portland has started publishing that work.
You can now support Ryan’s journalism work directly via their brand new Patreon. The independent journalism economy is broken, and getting direct support from readers is vital for enabling this work to continue. Reader support is what keeps Seattle Bike Blog going, for example. Ryan’s work is definitely worth funding.
Hello everyone! This morning I am officially launching my Patreon. If you like the reporting I do here, at @UrbanistOrg and elsewhere, I would be honored to have your support in continuing my work. https://t.co/PccsfY9V2p
