Governor Jay Inslee announced a path in late July to retain investments in the safety of our children on their way to school, special needs transit and critical biking connections while moving forward on his agenda on reducing carbon emissions. Washington Bikes and Cascade Bicycle Club thank Gov. Inslee for making the choice that retains Washington’s historic transportation investments in bicycling, health and safety.

Cascade urges SDOT to make immediate safety improvements within the next month, followed by full implementation of the BMP-prioritized protected bike lane on NE 65th Street from Ravenna Boulevard to 20th Avenue NE.

Ever since the Second Avenue Protected Bike Lane was installed last September, hundreds of people have been thanking Mayor Ed Murray for his leadership to build it in record speed as the beginning of a network of protected bike lanes in downtown. In fact, nearly 1,000 people have signed "I ❤ Downtown Protected Bike Lanes" postcards, and we're about ready to deliver the postcards to Mayor Murray next Thursday during Cascade's Bike Everywhere Breakfast. To celebrate getting to 1,000 signed postcards, Rosalie Daggett and Lindsay Buzzo of the Connect Downtown team created an amazing video. Check it out, then sign a postcard before it's too late.
