The Seattle Bicycle Advisory Board is leading a Central Seattle bikeability tour Sunday. The tour is the final in a series of tours of various neighborhoods for the citizen board, which is tasked with advising the city on issues related to bicycling.
The tour starts at Cherry Street Coffee House on 12th Ave and will go from 10 a.m. to 1.
Details from the event listing:
Please join the Seattle Bicycle Advisory Board, Cascade Bicycle Club, and Seattle Neighborhood Greenways for our sixth and final Seattle “Bikeability Tour” of the year. This one will take place in Central Seattle (Central District/Capitol Hill/Eastlake) on Sunday, November 11, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The purpose of the ride is to engage the Central Seattle community in the Bicycle Master Plan Update by identifying challenges and opportunities for better bicycling in those neighborhoods. Following the ride, SBAB will draft a report that will be distributed to City Council, the Mayor’s Office, and SDOT containing recommendations for ways to improve bicycling in Central Seattle for people of all ages and abilities. This report will be informed by the community participants and submitted as input into the update of the Bicycle Master Plan.

We will meet in front of the Cherry Street Coffee House at Seattle University (1223 E Cherry St) at 10 a.m. and ride a 7-mile route through several Central Seattle neighborhoods. We will end the ride at Grand Central Bakery on Eastlake Ave at noon for an hour of discussion of what we saw along the way over lunch.
I hope you can join us on November 11. If you have any questions about the event, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly. And feel free to help spread the word!
