Bikes on Light Rail Kick-Off

The Bicycle Alliance is excited to be kicking off its Bikes on Light Rail project in Southeast Seattle at Bike Works' Kid Bike Swap on May 8, 2010 from 10am-4pm at Genesee Playfield. Kids will get to test their new bikes and learn riding skills on a course we set up, and we will be provide maps and information about taking bikes on transit and places to ride in their neighborhoods. The Bicycle Alliance is a Gold Level sponsor of the 2010 Kids Bike Swap.

We are promoting bikes on light rail as part of a joint project with Transportation Choices Coalition to promote the use of light rail to Southeast Seattle residents with our focus on combining it with bicycling. The Bikes on Light Rail project is generously funded by a grant from Boeing.

Future Bikes on Light Rail activities include organizing and leading short rides for the Beacon Hill Elementary School Bike Club, organizing neighborhood rides to Link Light Rail stations, and matching new riders with Bike Buddies.
