VIDEO: Alki Daze Costumed Bike Parade bedazzles the beach

Alki resident Guy Olson says this is his way of extending the spirit of the city “car-free day” celebration that used to follow the West Seattle 5K – he organized a weekend of events dubbed “Alki Daze,” including the costumed bike parade that rolled eastbound down the beach this afternoon, open to all. You’ll see all the riders in our video, above; below, the pre-parade staging revealed bikes of all sizes, including some classics:


Eventually it was time to hop on and ride off:

P.S. As we’ve been reporting, the city DOES plan a “car-free” party on Alki this year – as part of what’s now called Seattle Summer Parkways – but not until September 25th.

    Thanks Guy, for another great bike parade, they get better every year. Do you think someone who took a group photo of all the costumes down at the boat launch parking lot could send it to the Blog to add to the story? That would give an idea of how many were participating. It was quite a group!

Sorry, comment time is over.
