Robb Mason was killed while biking home to his wife Claudia (both pictured below) in July. He was a loving husband, a caring friend and gentle soul.
Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident. Last year was the deadliest year on Seattle’s streets since 2006, with 30 lives lost. This year is shaping up to be just as tragic.
As we laid out in an open letter to the mayor this summer, these deaths are preventable with proven solutions that his administration can implement now.
Join fellow safe street advocates, the new SDOT Director Greg Spotts, a representative from the Mayor’s office, and Claudia Mason and family and friends in a memorial ride on September 30th to honor Robb Mason’s memory, and raise awareness of the need to invest in traffic safety improvements on the streets of Seattle.
Date: Friday, September 30
Start time: 5:30 pm
Starting place: City Hall Plaza, 600 4th Ave (if you prefer not to bike, you can also meet us at the crash site on the east side of the West Seattle low bridge).

With your help we will get Vision Zero back on track, and create a transportation system where no one loses their life while walking, biking, driving or rolling on our streets.
West Seattle, Washington
