Commuter

A bicycle commuter in Seattle versus cars, by Mike Kane/P-I.

More on cycling in Seattle, Seattle’s Bicycle Master Plan, and the “more than 900 riders have been injured and 5 killed in accidents since 2001.”

Car Free in Seattle

While googling for reaction to Seattle’s Bicycle Master Plan, I found the Sightline Institute’s blog and posts from their director on living car-free. Highlights include CNN hanging with them for a day and a car free vacation.

A shift in power: Seattle’s Bicycle Master Plan

Most appealing in Seattle’s Bicycle Master Plan is the intention to mainly focus on existing roadways and making them more bike friendly and improving the City’s quality of life. I posted on this topic earlier, after being convinced by the Contested Streets documentary that shows how cities have “focused on the bicycle as a primary transporter and changed their streets and traffic flow to allow for more bikes.”

Also very important is wayfinding for cyclists and I think the goal of increasing “cycling from 2 percent of all trips now, to 12 percent of all trips within 20 years” is achievable.

A master plan

Seattle released their Bicycle Master Plan yesterday and there’s a meeting tonight about it. I’ve got a holiday party to attend and won’t be there, but hope to hear from the attendees. I’ll also post a follow up on the report itself.
