Members of CSG organized a fun, casual, all-ages-and-abilities group ride last Sunday (June 13) to celebrate the brand new E Union St protected bike lanes and other highlights in the Central District.
With COVID-19 vaccination rates high in Seattle and strong evidence that outdoor transmission is minimal, we felt it was safe to see each other in person again. A good crowd of both familiar faces and newcomers to CSG gathered at Spring Street Mini Park. (Thanks to Seattle Bike Blog for spreading the word about the ride!) Fortunately, the rainy weather that day decided to let up just long enough for our event. We set off and rode along the Union PBL, the Columbia Street Stay Healthy Street, and the 18th Ave Central Ridge Greenway, stopping to discuss new infrastructure and ongoing advocacy efforts. Our ride concluded at 12th Ave Square Park near Seattle University, where we enjoyed coffee and treats from the new Boon Boona Coffee location while catching up with old friends and making new ones.
We hope you enjoy these photos, which were taken by Brie Gyncild, David Seater, and Bob Svercl.
