May Is Bike To Work, Bike To School Month – Contact SWS for Route Ideas

May is Bike to Work month. Sponsored by Cascade Bicycle Club, Bike to Work month is a call out to new and recreational riders to give bicycle commuting a try.

Most often, once a cyclist is properly exposed to the daily recreation of bicycle commuting they tend to stick with it. There are many great ways to get out of West Seattle during rush hour by bike that are far more efficient and fun than the West Seattle bridge by car.

  • If you work downtown consider using the West Seattle Water Taxi and be a tourist.
  • If you work to the south you can ride the Duwamish trail to Boeing as well as other work centers.
  • It is also Bike to School Month.

For more information on commuter routes in all directions you can contact SWS’s own bicycle resource person, Stu Hennessey from noon to 7:00 pm weekdays for route selections, 206-938-3322, or visit Stu at Alki Bike & Board’s Admiral location – 2606 California Ave. SW.
