Adaptive-cycling test rides Sunday at Alki Point’s newly reconfigured Healthy Street

“We can get almost anyone on a bike,” says Outdoors for All, which is coming back to West Seattle this Sunday (June 9) for another adaptive-cycling demonstration, with free test rides. Outdoors for All, which is partnering with SDOT for the free event, says it’s “for people with disabilities or anyone that can’t ride a 2-wheeled bike due to balance issues.” They’ll be there 10 am-2 pm Sunday, with trikes, handcycles, and tandems, free of charge to take for a ride. No need to register in advance: “Riders can complete their liability waiver and registration at the event.” Outdoors for All came to the same location last August for a similar event.

    This is awesome! Just one of the many great things this change brought about!

      There’s been a paved 3-mile bike/rolling lane at Alki for decades and it doesn’t abruptly steer cyclists, skaters, and joggers into the street.

        Until you reach a little bit past 64th Ave and it doesn’t connect with this healthy street.

    No question that adaptive biking is a plus. With regard to the Beach Drive portion of Alki – It will be interesting how they merge with the existing single lane, two way road shared with cars and bikes (as it is currently marked)

    Ms.Wheelchair Washington 2020-2021 here! I’d love to come out and support if they are looking for a cheerleader or anything like that!
