Tell the city: Build the Basic Bike Network now!

Safe bike lanes downtown are in jeopardy. We need your help to demonstrate support for building the #BasicBikeNetwork now by showing up at the Seattle City Council Transportation Committee meeting this Tuesday! RSVP and learn more. Downtown bikingWhat’s the Basic Bike Network? It’s a vision for a connected network of safe streets to bike on, not just disconnected pieces here and there. When the #BasicBikeNetwork is built, the city expects to more than double the number of people who bike downtown by 2023. And we also know that protected bike lanes make it safer to walk too by separating car turning and walking signal phases.
