Route Planning U-District to Pioneer Square

After switching offices I'm trying to find the best route from the U District to Pioneer square. Currently, I'm going from Valley -> 9th -> Bell -> 2nd. I'm going to try out using 4th on the way back home.    Any other ideas?


Try riding over Capitol Hill. You'll avoid a lot of the downtown traffic that way.  Try 12th Ave and then come down one of the streets parallel to Madison or James which should take you right to Pioneer Square.

Or hug the side of the hill, such as Harvard Ave/ Lakeview/ Melrose and hang a right on Pine.  That's more direct than the way you're coming, I'd guess.
