Primary ballots are in the mail! Here's what candidates say about safe streets #SEAbikes

Approximately half the city’s population is running for City Council right now. Lucky for you, the new district elections system means you only have to know about three of the races (two city-wide and one where you live). There are a lot of great people…

Check out the ten miles of car-free Summer Parkways in the Central District and Ballard #SEAbikes

Seattle is stepping up its open streets game in 2015, remaking the old Summer Streets program into the bigger and more active Summer Parkways. Basically, the events will smash together Summer Streets (neighborhood street fairs) with the car-free family…

It's not I-35: Support a safer 35th Ave SW at two open houses this week #SEAbikes

In the past ten years, more than 400 people have been seriously injured in traffic collisions on just one street in West Seattle: 35th Ave SW. Five people have been killed. If we don’t take action, 400 more people will be injured in the next ten years,…

Newly-paved section of the East Lake Sammamish Trail is now open #SEAbikes

The newest paved section of the E Lake Sammamish Trail has opened, and it’s far more than just a trail. King County recently opened a 2.6-mile segment of the rail-trail stretching south from the segment already paved in Redmond. A very bikeable gravel…

NE 65th St is dangerous by design, and we know how to make it safer. What's stopping us? #SEAbikes

EDITOR’S NOTE: This story is a follow-up to yesterday’s report about Vehicular Homicide charges against Lucas McQuinn in the alleged DUI collision that killed Andy Hulslander. I suggest reading that story first. The dangers on NE 65th Street are not news.…

State will fund UW Burke-Gilman remake, Northgate bike/walk bridge, Eastside bike share + a lot more #SEAbikes

Today, the WA House passed the appropriations part of the 16-year transportation package, earmarking money for lots and lots of highways and highway debt. We here at Seattle Bike Blog are certainly distressed by all the new and expanded highways, but…

They already collect taxes for trails. It is called the general fund. Cars and trucks don't even pay their full amount. Car excise and fuel taxes only cover about 40 percent of the costs of highways. Local roads are taken care of by the general fund. You know what is crazy is the cost for 520 and the tunnel projects for like 4 miles total. And trails are used by pedestrians also how are you going to tax them?

City and contractor rethinking sudden 2nd Ave bike lane closure #SEAbikes

The moment fences went up blocking the 2nd Ave protected bike lane just south of Pike Street, I started getting tweets and emails from baffled people who, rather than having a protected bike lane were detoured mid-block into the general traffic lane: Holy…

Bus-bike-backpacking on the Iron Horse Trail is simply unreal #SEAbikes

It’s early on a Friday morning, and we’re waiting at 4th and Lenora, an unassuming corner in downtown Seattle where so many great bus-bike adventures begin. This is the first stop for Sound Transit’s 554 express bus to Issaquah. Within hours, we’d be deep…
