We missed this meeting, but it was well attended.


Toward a safer Seattle for bicyclists
400 riders weigh in to help create a pedal-friendly city


When 400 Seattle bicyclists were asked Tuesday how many had ever been in a collision with an automobile, nearly one-third raised their hands.

The question was posed by Tammy Sufi of the Toole Design Group, a Maryland firm spearheading development of a blueprint for the future of bicycle lanes and trails in Seattle.

Safety is one of many concerns for bicyclists who came to the University of Washington's Gould Hall Tuesday to hear more about Seattle's Bicycle Master Plan, a project they hope will turn Seattle into the most bike-friendly city in the country.
