Symphony for Singing Bicycles

Via the Bike Show, I started reading about Godfried-Willem Raes’ Symphony for Singing Bicycles, a rotating peloton of sound with specially-equipped bikes.

Now imagine performing a symphony on Stone Way … and having the Rock the Bike crowd close the performance.

Old School Folding Bike

After seeing this 70s folding bike with integrated rack, taking some photos, and chatting with the owner, I googled italian folding bike and found several versions of the same bike with different names. There’s the Cinzia, Hyda Bike, Barbarellas, Safari, and sometimes Bianchi. Fascinating. Anyone know the history of these bikes?

Backpedaling Bad for Seattle

Alan Durning, executive director of Sightline Institute, and Chuck Ayers, executive director of the Cascade Bicycle Club wrote an editorial this week on Stone Way, which is the cause célèbre for Seattle cyclists.

“The fate of Stone Way is particularly important to the future of green, healthy transportation in Seattle. The Seattle Bicycle Master Plan, which calls for an extensive network of new bicycle lanes, originally flagged Stone Way as a key link, connecting the increasing residential and commercial density of North Seattle to the region’s most popular bicycle route: the Burke-Gilman Trail.”

Predictable comments in the Soundoff, reminded me of this YouTube video about funding bicycle projects.

Does Stone Way matter to you? Is it your cause célèbre?
