"Look Ma, No Car!"...An Intro to Transportation Bicycling for Families Morgan Scherer 10:15 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. As Seattle continues to improve its bicycling infrastructure, it is becoming appealing to more and more families to get out of the car and onto bicycles to get around town. But getting started can be daunting and questions beg to be answered. How do I start? What kinds of equipment could work for my family and situation? What about hills/rain/cold? Is it safe? Come to this engaging and interactive presentation by Familybike Seattle founder Morgan Scherer as she presents safe and exciting ways to get started, as well as stories from the road. Morgan Scherer has been creatively biking her family and friends around Seattle since 2000. She started with a recumbent bike and a trailer, added an electric assist motor, and moved through a variety of interesting passenger/cargo carrying systems from there. Having gathered so much equipment, experience and knowledge, Ms. Scherer put on the first Family Bike Expo in 2007 and officially started the nonprofit Familybike Seattle in 2012.
