Safe Streets bike ride today
Posted on September 23rd, 2011 by Laura Fonda
A bike ride to honor those killed or injured while biking in Seattle will take place today at 3 p.m., at Queen Anne’s eastern edge at South Lake Union Park.
Riders will ride slowly to the memorials created for Mike Wang, Brian Fairbrother and Robert Townsend, each killed in biking accidents in the city.
The Seattle Bike Blog is organizing a ride that will visit the memorials at Dexter and Thomas streets, Fairview Avenue North, and University Way.
Anyone whose life has been affected by biking tragedies, and those in support of legislation to make biking safer in the city, is welcome to ride. For more information visit www.seattlebikeblog.com.
