Le Tour de life

While Le Tour continues, in chaos, this photo reminds me of “Le Tour de life,” where we just love bikes, that’s our dope.

Yes, no helmet, but the photo speaks for itself and also what you’re telling us in comments.

New Toys! Mavic R-SYS wheel

mavic%20wheel%2007.jpgKarlee the Mavic rep called the other day and asked if I wanted to see the new R-SYS wheelset, the new top-of-the-line all-around wheels from Mavic. These puppies are slotted to come in above last year’s $1200 Ksyrium ES wheelset (ya know, the black wheels with a single red spoke). Yeah, bring’em.

Seattle Likes Bikes

Update
We Ride: Stone Way/Fremont Wednesday August 1
Meetup:4:30 (Gasworks) Ride:5-6pm

Join Seattle Likes Bikes tonight at 6:00 pm, leaving from Gasworks for a ride through lower Fremont to draw attention to the Stone Way gap. The plan for complete streets along Stone Way North, as outlined in the Bike Master Plan, has been under attack, leaving a gap between North 40th and 34th streets without any bike facilities.

Today from Cacade’s Breaking News:

Should anti-bike efforts succeed, it would set a horrible precedent. Moreover, it would embolden cycling-opponents to strip other corridors from the plan. If this happens, no part of the $240 million, 450-mile bicycle facility network is safe.

Show your support now and contact the Seattle City Council! The future of the Bike Master Plan depends on it.

Ordinance 951 Overturned

The Seattle bicycle community enjoyed a huge victory this week, many thanks to Cascade and their work with the Burke-Gilman Legal Defense Fund. Finding in favor of a petition challenging the City of Lake Forrest Park’s Ordinance 951 (organized by Cascade), the Central Puget Sound Growth Management Hearings Board agreed that the route is an important part of the regional transportation and recreation facilities.

The Burke-Gilman trail serves as a vital non-motorized transportation artery throughout the City of Seattle and connecting residents to cities north and east. The current trail running through the City of Lake Forrest Park is horribly managed and in need of serious attention. Crossing many residential streets, trail users face poorly-placed stop signs every couple hundred feet in addition to severely cracked and dangerous pavement. This ruling allows King County to bring the current section of trail up to current safety standards, better serving walkers, runners, roller-bladers and cyclists alike.

An excerpt from the press release:

“The stakes were huge. Today, we closed the door on cities that want to apply unsafe or non-standard conditions to regional trails, thereby impeding the development and maintenance of trails according to accepted, uniform standards,” said David Hiller, Cascade Bicycle Club Advocacy Director. “This case sets a precedent for all future trail development and reconstruction.”
