The city is finally going to fill the Roosevelt bike lane missing link between NE 75th and NE 85th. The open house is Tuesday from 7 – 8:30 p.m. at Northgate Community Center. Two years ago, the city installed bike … Continue reading
You may remember back in 2010 when concerns from some Maple Leaf neighbors delayed the completion of the Roosevelt bike lane between 75th and 85th. It was my first month of writing Seattle Bike Blog and I made a rookie … Continue reading
SDOT highlighted the recent changes to 20th Ave NW in Ballard on their blog. I had the chance to try the new lanes out the other day, and the new configuration seemed like a natural fit for the street. They … Continue reading
SDOT is moving forward with plans to create a bike route to connect Broadway and Capitol Hill to downtown via Cherry St. Today, First Hill is something of a black hole of bike routes in the city’s center, and the … Continue reading
This is late notice again (sorry!), but SDOT will be at two separate meetings at 7 p.m. tonight (May 11) to discuss projects on 20th Ave NW in Ballard and N/NE 65th St in Green Lake. Green Lake SDOT representatives … Continue reading
I am super late on this project, but SDOT has proposed installing a bike lane on Latona Ave N in Wallingford to connect the Burke-Gilman Trail to NE 45th St. SDOT staff will be at the Wallingford Community Council meeting … Continue reading
There are these wonderful moments where opponents to bicycle projects just come right out and say what they mean. It’s refreshing to hear a group’s arguments against lanes without them being distorted into, say, an Orwellian desire to “protect” cyclists … Continue reading
Work to repave and reconfigure NE 55th St near Ravenna Park is scheduled to begin April 4. The project will add curb bulbs and bike lanes to the large, strange intersection of NE 55th, NE 54th, Ravenna Pl NE, Ravenna … Continue reading
I linked to this video on Twitter a few days ago, but I’ve received so much positive feedback from people who watched it I thought I’d go ahead and make it the MLK Day video. This group of Gudalajara transportation … Continue reading
SDOT wrote a blog post summing up their bike-related efforts this year. Needless to say, this year was great and tough at the same time. Our city installed miles of very good bike infrastructure, while simultaneously calming traffic speeds and … Continue reading
Remember back when you could be riding your bike pleasantly along a relatively calm Greenwood Ave headed north, then you would reach 85th and the road would become a four-lane highway? The cars that were so recently calm would speed … Continue reading
I was beginning to wonder if they forgot. Or maybe they ran out of money, I thought. It has been months since the bike lanes on Roosevelt, 11th and near the University Bridge went in, and I noticed from the … Continue reading
Beacon Hill now has some more bike lanes. Some day this project will meet up with plans for S Columbian Way/Alaska between Beacon Ave and MLK, greatly enhancing connectivity between Beacon Hill (and the Chief Sealth Trail) and Columbia City. … Continue reading
This may seem obvious to anyone who has ever followed a diesel bus up a steep hill, but the air quality several feet away from motor vehicle lanes is significantly cleaner and healthier, according to a new study by PSU … Continue reading
By the end of the week, bikers trying to scale Queen Anne Hill on their bikes will have a little more space to do it. Josh at Publicola reports that SDOT has laid down the spray paint for a climbing … Continue reading
Now come on. You have so many other places to go. Bikes get these little slivers of space to ride in. There is no excuse for parking or driving a motor vehicle in a bike facility.
When drivers get mad about a little bike box or a couple bike lanes, show them this map. Your taxes pay for these roads, but you are not allowed to ride your bike on any of them. In fact, it’s … Continue reading
Following the city’s recent announcement of 11 new Neighborhood Street Fund projects, I will be taking a closer look at the ones that most affect cyclists. Most of the projects are focused on sidewalks and crossing improvements for pedestrians, but … Continue reading
BikePortland has a cheery report today about a group of appreciative bikers who are on a mission to bring cool treats to workers on bike infrastructure projects. Perhaps we could do something similar for our bike project workers. After all, … Continue reading
The bike lanes have been painted on 11th through the U District. Coupled with the lanes on Roosevelt, there are now bike lanes in both directions connecting to the University Bridge. And there was much rejoicing.
