Tell the City Council to set measurable and ambitious goals in the Bicycle Master Plan Update
In order for Seattle to accomplish our shared vision of becoming a city where everyone, from an eight-year-old child to her eighty-year-old grandmother, has the freedom to safely bike to where they need to go, we need an updated bike plan that calls for 200 new miles of world-class bikeways by the year 2020. But that's not all. The plan should also include the goals of:
Increasing the number of trips made by bicycle in Seattle to 20 percent;
Reducing the number of crash-related deaths to zero;
Installing functional and high-capacity bike parking in Seattle’s urban villages and neighborhood business districts that exceeds current demand, not just meets it; and
Bringing safe and comfortable bikeways to within a quarter-mile of 95 percent of Seattleites by the time the plan is completed.
