Bicycle Master Plan update

Next week the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) releases the next draft of the City's Bicycle Master Plan Update. We know that in order to make bicycling in Seattle safer for everyone, we need at least 200 miles of safe, connected and comfortable bikeways that give people the freedom to ride a bike to where they need to go.

Wednesday June 12 from 6-7:30pm, join us at Columbia Branch Library to tell SDOT to truly commit to the vision of safe places to ride throughout.

blessing of the bicycles

Saturday, June 8, 10am at Seward Park (meet at the bike rack by the pottery studio)

The best season for biking is here, and what better way to kick it off than with a blessing of your bicycle! All ages and faiths welcome for this simple service of blessing, including a holy anointing of the bikes with chain lube, prayers for safety, and a ride around Seward Park. The more adventurous among us may wish to continue along Lake Washington Blvd.

Brought to you by Columbia City Church of Hope.

call to artists: Art Walk Rainier Beach

Art Walk Rainier Beach is a combination of a merchant association-style art walk as found in various neighborhoods in Seattle, and a small outdoor community art fair. It is intended to create a constructive and safe image for the district, build positive awareness of Rainier Beach's character and diversity, and bring the businesses, residents and visitors together to discover neighborhood treasures.
