I was finishing up the racing season at Pacific Raceways (a crash fest, when it started raining) and missed the Bicycle Master Plan Public Meeting. The Seattle PI reports that 400 cyclists showed up to hear transportation officials discuss a “$300,000 project that will guide improvements to streets, bridges and trails to boost rider safety and encourage more Seattleites to pedal instead of drive.”
I checked the blogosphere this morning and haven’t seen reports from the meeting. There are two more meetings planned.
Scott, our hip designer and brand manager, took this self portrait with a camera phone while biking to the store in a Hugger tshirt.
We’ve also got a Canadian Contingent wearing them. Hello Canadians!
A reminder that the Bicycle Master Plan Public Meeting is tonight at Gould Hall, UW Campus, 3949 15th Ave NE at 6:30 - 9:30 PM. On the agenda is an open house, presentation, and interactive workstations.
- On-line Questionnaire
- KUOW Program Archive discussing the plan and bicycles in Seattle
- Toole Design Group, design firm hired to draft the plan.
Bike Hugger will “represent” at Interbike this year blogging the booths, exhibits, culture, and most everything else. Interbike is North America’s largest bicycle trade event and show and we’re excited to meet bike industry people we’ve only corresponded with in email, including the long list of manufacturer’s parts going into Bettie, our project bike.
