West Seattle Bike Connections hosted a celebration station where the trails meet under the West Seattle Bridge for the morning commute hours. Bob Winship led the effort. Cascade Bicycle Club and F5 sponsor the event. Alki Bike and Board and West Seattle Cyclery joined us to provide quick bike checks and adjustments. Nuun was there with sports drinks. WSBC volunteers baked cookies, brought fruit and other treats, and Starbucks donated coffee. A big thank you to all who made this happen and all who stopped or waved.
If you are just trying this out, know that it keeps getting easier more comfortable the more you ride! And we are here to make it safer, more connected and more comfortable.
