Three wins for people walking and biking

Some of the Basic Bike Network supporters at City Council on July 30

What a Monday! On Monday, July 30 at Seattle City Council passed three exciting pieces of legislation:

  1. The Seattle City Council unanimously voted today in favor of building major pieces of the basic bike network. Thanks to this vote you and your loved ones will have safe, protected routes to bike into and through downtown Seattle from the north, south, and east (2nd Ave to Westlake, Dearborn, and Broadway) by the end of next year.
