Got a motorcycle? You can put the “labor” in Labor Day by joining in this citywide ride that starts in West Seattle on Monday morning. Scott sent the announcement:
Join Seattle City Councilmember Lisa Herbold and Seattle’s labor community for a motorcycle ride through Seattle and a visit to some of Seattle’s union Halls.
Participation in the poker-run is $20 and benefits The Labor Archives of Washington. Registration starts at 8:00 am at the Chelan Café in West Seattle. From there we journey on to several union halls before ending at the Seattle Labor Temple for the annual Labor Picnic at 1:00. And yes, there is reserved parking. An after-event is scheduled for 4 pm at Slim’s Last Chance.
You don’t have to be a union member to participate – everyone is welcome. Given the route, this is a great event for smaller bikes and scooters as well.
