I went on John Reardon’s ride from Gas Works to the West Seattle Farmer’s Market and was disheartened by the condition of the East Marginal Way bike lane, leading out from downtown in front of the port terminals. This has been a problem West Seattle bicyclists have been facing for weeks:
Yesterday, West Seattle Bike Connections reported that the gravel-filled bike lane on West Marginal way has finally been swept.
On Sunday’s ride, we were also on the lookout for the reported tacks on the Alaskan Way Trail. Though we didn’t spot any, we did our best to clean up a broken beer bottle that was smashed in the middle of the trail. I wish I had brought a small broom and dustpan with me. As a cargo bike rider, I have plenty of room to tote such items around.
Remember, you can report road and trail hazards, as well as collisions and thefts, on Bikewise.
