Seattle Neighborhood Greenways, the MASS Coalition, and allies, are hosting candidate forums in five of the seven Seattle City Council districts this month. We'll hear from candidates as they answer questions about the biggest issues facing our city: transportation, housing, reducing carbon emissions, and equity. Read more

This Bike Month Try Out a Bike Train!

New to biking or want company? Check out Seattle Bike Train (seattlebiketrain.com), which runs volunteer-led rides every Friday morning from Columbia City, Mt Baker, Othello, Beacon Hill, Ravenna and Fremont neighborhoods to downtown Seattle!

The idea is to just get out there and ride your bike with others! Sometimes the hardest part about bike commuting is knowing the way and feeling safe, but riding in a group can help with both! You get the security of having experienced riders mixed with new ones helping guide you downtown.

Seattle Bike Train is also on Twitter.
