Two dozen young, middle-aged and older people on bikes had a great time this morning exploring and playing in Jack Block Park and north Delridge. We saw Coast Salish art, and a steel plant and trains. We rode down a Dead End that wasn’t, if you were on a bike, and went to a giant dragonfly. We rode on gravel along a creek in a green tunnel to a salmon bridge. Some of us tried a skatepark and climbed on a climbing rock and one of us climbed up some artwork. We rode on a greenway street and got counted, and on a street with beautiful raingardens and sidewalks, and we went back to the bay where all the water all goes.
We’ll do another one! Let’s boost the family riders in West Seattle by exploring more of the public art and parks that we can enjoy by bike.
We have reached out to the Duwamish Revealed organizers. They would love to have us lead a ride to the art projects that are going in along the Duwamish this summer. Want to help plan? Your ideas and volunteering for other rides are welcome, too.
