VIDEO: West Seattle Bike Connections’ ride to prep for #Realign99

Six nights until the Alaskan Way Viaduct closes forever. Got your plan for how to get around during the #Realign99 viaduct-to-tunnel transition time? Today was the day West Seattle Bike Connections offered a free guided ride to anyone interested in testing the route to/from downtown. WSBC’s Don Brubeck forwarded the video by Paul Dieter; Don reports, “28 adults + 4 kid passengers. Strong interest in this commute option!” P.S. If you’d like to meet up with WSBC pre-Viadoom, their regular monthly meeting is next Tuesday (January 8th), 6:30 pm at Neighborhood House High Point (6400 Sylvan Way).

    It would be interesting to see the number of riders during the closure and compare this to the prior closure in May 2016. There is no good time to do the closure, but bad weather is not going to help the workers on the project get it done and cold wet weather makes alternative options less appealing for commuters.

    By the way, Paul, that’s a fantastic video for what looked like a fantastic ride. Thanks!

Sorry, comment time is over.
