Ride Description:
Please join me for a fun trip to Beacon Hill for the Seattle Neighborhood Greenways Feast, Street Festival. This will be a ride to get to know this organization, see what it is all about and meet some contacts who can answer questions and inform us on the future plans to create safe ways to commute on bikes as well as ride for fun and exercise. Its also an opportunity to find ways to volunteer or other ways to help improve cycling. We will be on trails and roads for the ride.

There are many options for our ride. You can ride to the festival and we will stay for about 30-60min to have a snack and see what this event is all about. You may also ride to the event and meet others for dinner by buying a ticket and returning home with whom ever you want to meet, or you can always take the train and or bus home as well. If you choose not to ride back with me, just give me advance notice so I know who is returning with me. The latest we will stay is about 6pm so we are not riding home too late. SO PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE RED LIGHT ON THE BACK OF YOUR BIKE AND A WHITE SOLID LIGHT ON FRONT, AS WELL AS REFLECTIVE GEAR IS ENCOURAGED TO BE SAFE!
