Let's Ride! Friday Forum on the Bicycle Master Plan
Seattle Bike Advisory Board member Jessica Szelag and Mayor Murray's transit and transportation advisor Andrew Glass-Hastings headline a panel about future of the city's bike-related plans.
Among other topics—such as how cycle tracks can be a boon to local businesses and how bike sharing can work smoothly— the panel will discuss the planning, implementation, and potential benefits of the recently updated Bicyle Master Plan, which calls for nearly 50 new miles of protected bike lanes and a network of bicycle facilities that will be no more than a quarter mile from every citizen.
Let's Ride! Friday Forum on the Bicycle Master Plan, Fri, June 6, Noon–1 pm, Chinook Building room 121, 401 Fifth Avenue, free.
