A special stop for bicycle commuters is among the highlights for tonight, from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:

DIY BIKES – UNDER THE BRIDGE: Per the following announcement:

Bicycle commuters coming home from work tonight may find a surprise under the West Seattle Bridge. The West Seattle Tool Library’s Fixers Collective and DIY Bikes will be doing their monthly workshop under the West Seattle Bridge” “It’s been a long summer so far and many of our daily bicycle commuters have not found the time to work on their bicycles or take them into a local shop. We are coming to the riders to make ourselves more available.” The West Seattle Tool Library and DIY Bikes are projects of Sustainable West Seattle.
