Thumbs up if you like biking everywhere

Thank You for Biking Everywhere! Now Let’s Speak up for Biking

  • Bike Everywhere Day (May 17) was a huge success. Smiling people pedaled to our Celebration Stations in Seattle, Redmond, West Seattle and across Washington state in celebration of Bike Everywhere Month presented by Microsoft.
  • Now we must turn pedal power into political power. Join me at Seattle City Hall on June 4 and tell the City Council that bike infrastructure is fundamental to our transportation future.
