This week several City Councilmembers and I will be participating in the “Walk Bike Ride Challenge” of Mayor McGinn. The goal is to convert two car trips per week to walking, biking or riding to shop, work or play. This is a great idea and sounds pretty easy to me.
If you would like to join me on my commute to work next week, meet me at Weather Watch Park at 4035 Beach Drive SW at 7:00 a.m. I will be riding my bike from that location each morning for the next five days unless something requires me to take the #37 bus instead.
I will be updating this blog with experiences from my commute trips. You can let me know by commenting here how you are participating by taking the challenge yourself. Here is where you can sign up and get more information: http://www.seattle.gov/waytogo/WBR.htm
