Cascade’s Family Biking Program launches this spring by Julie Salathé, Education Director

C

ascade is launching a new Family Biking program focused on encouraging more families and kids to ride bikes. The program includes classes, resources, rides and events. The concept of family biking will bring focus to our existing programming and act as an impetus to add new classes and rides. New this year is Cascade’s four-part series of family biking classes at Magnuson Park. The classes will be held from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Sundays in April, June, and September. The first Sunday of each month will be a Learn-2-Ride for all ages. The second Sunday will be a Bike Skillz and Bike Fiets rodeo for all ages; the third Sunday will be a family bike skills class for parents and kids on their own bikes; the fourth Sunday will be a ride for families. We are partnering with Morgan Scherer (speaking at this month’s Bike Expo) of Bike Works and her new nonprofit Familybike to teach these classes.

To start the 2013 season, come to the Seattle Bike Expo for fun kids’ activities. The Expo will feature a kids’ Learn-2-Ride, a Wheelie Fun stunt course, games, bike art and a scavenger hunt. Morgan Scherer brings her cargo bike exhibit to Expo again this year. Catch her at the Raleigh stage, Saturday, March 9, 1:30 to 2:30 p.m., where she and Nancy Sathre Vogel talk about biking as a family, either in the city to get places you need to go, or traveling all the way down two continents! In April, Cascade will also teach parents to lead “bike trains.” Bike Trains are when a groups of kids travel to school together by bike. “Bike Trainings” complement a move by the Seattle Public Schools to encourage “Walking School Buses” or groups of kids walking to school led by a parent volunteer. And don’t forget, May is Bike Month, with more than 40 schools participating in Bike continued on page 4

Seattle voters: we want safe places to bike by Evan Manvel, Director of Policy, Planning and Government Affairs

W

hen Cascade commissioned a poll of Seattle voters, we didn’t know what we’d discover. Polls and focus groups force us out of the communities we’re used to hearing from, into the unknown general public. And the public debate is often dominated by complainers, rather than those happy with the direction we’re headed. When we got the results, we were overwhelmed – and overjoyed – by the strength of support for our vision. We learned, in short, Seattle voters like bicyclists, want safe streets for everyone to be our top transportation priority, and don’t agree with the anti-bicyclist rhetoric that we see in public discussions. The message for those trying to get elected or working to represent Seattleites is clear: don’t run away from supporting bicycling, run toward it at full speed. Work to do even more to support safe places for people of all ages and abilities to ride a bicycle. Fulfill without fear our moral obligation to provide strong options for those who can’t or don’t want to drive to get around. The media also found the results compelling; our poll got coverage across the country. The Stranger wrote: “Seattle voters overwhelmingly like cyclists – 79 percent have a favorable opinion – and most of the city’s residents actually ride a bike. What’s even more contrary to conventional wisdom: By a two-to-one margin, voters support removing traffic lanes and some on-street parking to build

bicycle lanes that are physically separated from cars.” That result, on what pollsters called a forced-choice question, is one of the clearest signs Seattleites strongly support creating safe places to ride, even if it means tradeoffs. Our elected officials who hear complaints from a few people now know the public is strongly supportive of taking out a few car parking places to build protected bike lanes. Seattle Bike Blog had this take: “Bicycling is clearly part of Seattle’s character, and a majority of Seattle voters agree. Not only that, but they want more.” The Seattle Times, BikePortland, The Atlantic Cities, Treehugger and Streetsblog also covered the results, and in late February we hosted a national conference call discussing our poll with bike advocacy groups across America. The poll generated national attention because it runs counter to the general perception of deep divides and ongoing conflict between bicyclists and the rest of the public. That perception – fueled by poor media coverage, politicians trying to score a point, and vituperative online commenters – is out of line with reality. Voters simply don’t find the complaints about investing in bicycling credible or compelling. Fewer than a third of Seattleites agreed with the idea there is a “war on cars,” and voters overwhelmingly reject the idea “social engineers… are trying to force continued on page 4

Welcome new staff: Tim O’Connor

T

im O’Connor joined the Cascade staff in January as our new Tech Manager. He’s already rolled up his sleeves and jumped in to help with our myriad tech needs – from the next generation website to hardware and software audits to network wiring at the office. Tim is a native Alaskan who also grew up in Hawaii, Florida and Washington. Those different landscapes shaped his eclectic taste for jumping BMX bikes, equipped with front and back pegs for friends to ride, and mountain biking on gravel roads and tundra. It wasn’t until Tim moved to Seattle eight years ago to attend UW Business School that he discovered his love for speed on a rickety ole’ $70 road bike. Tim’s interest in cycling became serious when he discovered the STP five years ago. While riding solo his first year he quickly convinced his friends to join and it’s been a favorite summer tradition with friends ever since! Before Cascade, Tim ran his own construction business and then worked for seven years for a local Seattle startup as their IT and Marketing Manager. He is an avid volunteer who supports small businesses

Major Taylor Project students work their way to bikes

E

arn-a-bike is off and running through the Major Taylor Project. Students who do not have their own bikes and who have shown a dedication to the club in the past receive a bike that leaves something to be desired. Over the course of the five-week curriculum they learn to fix its quirks and at the end of the course, the bike is theirs to take home along with a helmet, a lock and front and rear lights. This 3 school year Major Taylor will run a total of five Earn-a-Bike classes in four schools. All participating students will leave the program with the skills to diagnose and fix the most common problems that occur while riding including how to fix flats, adjust brakes, replace chains and tweak derailleurs. Special thanks to Jeff Herman of Herman Law for providing lights for the Major Taylor Project this year!

t’s amazing what people working together to make their neighborhood better can accomplish. Just a few months ago, plans for the Seattle side of the SR 520 bridge replacement project did not include critical biking and walking connections. We were poised to repeat the mistakes of the past, further dividing our communities and making our city less safe for kids and less livable for working families. Powerful corporations were pushing for a roads-only approach to the project with little concern for making our streets safer for everybody. Politicians were talking about the project making our streets safer, but not taking the concrete actions to create what families need. Fortunately, caring neighbors in Montlake, Madison Park, Roanoke, Portage Bay, Laurelhurst and Capitol Hill came together as a community and spoke up for a better future. They demanded the SR 520 replacement project reconnect our neighborhoods and make it safe, comfortable and convenient for everyone, from an 8-year-old child to his 80-year-old grandmother, to bike and walk in their neighborhood. Everyone agreed: if we’re going to spend billions of dollars on a new 520 bridge, one that will stand long past our lifetimes, we have a responsibility to get it right. When the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) asked the community for input on the project, more than one thousand neighbors spoke up in support of investing in biking and walking connections to make their neighborhood streets safe for our children and continuing the regional shared-use trail across the new Portage Bay Bridge. Cascade Bicycle Club worked hand in hand with these caring neighbors and our friends at Seattle Neighborhood Greenways to make sure our representatives heard this

message loud and clear and knew how to fix the project. We helped people like you write more than 1500 letters to the Seattle City Council asking them to tell WSDOT to get SR 520 right. We delivered a packet of community letters showing overwhelming community support for improved biking and walking connections and technical guidance on how WSDOT could make these connections happen. And we worked with our City representatives and their staff on the language of a Resolution to make all of this a reality. In response to this overwhelming community support, the Seattle City Council passed a Resolution that will help ensure we get SR 520 right. The Resolution calls on WSDOT to redesign the biking and walking connections to and through Montlake and the west end to make them work for kids and families, develop options for including a shared-use trail across the new Portage Bay Bridge, collaborate with city agencies and the community to improve the project design before it is finalized and create an interim plan ensuring biking and walking connections will work during the years of bridge construction. Now, as WSDOT works to secure funding and complete the Seattle side of the SR 520 project, we’ve laid the foundation for the project to make it safer for kids and families to bike and walk on their neighborhood streets. All because people worked together to make their neighborhood better.

Earn-a-Scraper is off and rolling by Lindsey Parker, AmeriCorps, Youth Program Assistant

S

ix BMX bikes have been assigned to their new owners. Bright and colorful duct tape has been carefully chosen and applied to spokes in the true scraper bike fashion. Each week our scraper kids are learning new fix-it skills and have started maintenance on their donated bikes. The first few weeks of maintenance have covered ABC Quick Check and how to fix a flat tire. In the coming weeks, students will learn how to repack front and rear hubs, disassemble and clean the bottom bracket and how to maintain their bike chains. At the end of each weekly session, the duct tape comes out and plans are made towards customizing these bikes. During the first week, students chose a theme and color style that they want to implement after finishing their bikes. The finale of the Scraper program includes adding a fresh coat of spray paint to the frames, fitting new helmets and a ‘lock it or lose it’ bike lock instruction. The bikes will be ready to roll this spring season, so keep an eye out for these colorful scraper bikes!

L

ast spring, Cascade members Jeff and Louise Davis explained how to plan a perfect pedal tour to a packed house at REI. And now they’re back. This time they’ll share the bike adventure they were planning at that time and completed this summer: a month and a half trip up the coast of Maine. They say it’s one of the best they’ve ever done. Jeff lived in a small town in Maine 30 years ago, but rarely got to the coast. Louise grew up outside Boston, but only visited the Maine coast once as a child. It was clearly time to explore it. Jeff and Louise will take you Down East as they make their way from Boston to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, with three weeklong stays at very different places along the way. They’ll share back roads and beaches, hikes into the famous Maine Woods, and paddle trips along the rugged, rock-bound coast as they keep trying and trying until they found the perfect lobster dinner. Besides their usual

awesome photos, they’ll also provide tips on how to do your own DIY credit card bike tour, in Maine or elsewhere. Despite very different economies and history, Maine and Washington share many physical attributes—upper corners of the country, offshore islands, endless shoreline and evergreens—and values like concern for the environment and friendliness toward cyclists. Come join Jeff and Louise and see if Maine is where you want to point your bike someday.

Seattle voters: We want safe places to bike

us out of our cars.” As the old saying goes, “What if we held a war, and nobody came?” Meanwhile, repairing roads and sidewalks is supported by nearly all Seattle voters, creating more bicycle-friendly neighborhood greenways finds 86 percent support, and building more protected bicycle lanes, separated from car traffic, has 73 percent of voters behind it. These numbers don’t reflect a deep disagreement, rather a broad consensus in support of bicycle investments. It’s not surprising people support bicycling, as most people bicycle at least occasionally. We found 71 percent of respondents own or have access to a bike, and 60 percent of would like to ride a bike more often. The largest barriers from those who want to ride more often: weather, hills and not feeling safe. Cascade is working to address all three, with our daily rides and events encouraging

people to learn how to ride in weather and on hills and our advocacy work aimed at creating safe, comfortable places for everyone to ride. We are also working to get better route finding, so people have good signs and maps to help them navigate around (and up) the steepest hills. We’re getting there, slowly – and will get there faster if our communities invest more in biking than the slivers of budget they currently spend. We hope to do more opinion research across the region when resources allow. For now: thanks for your support, Seattle. Together, we can build a community that’s safe for everyone to bicycle in. Read the memo from our pollster summarizing the results by visiting www.cascade.org and clicking through “Results of our Seattle public opinion poll about bicycling.” The memo is linked at the bottom of the article.

In the recent years, more family biking options have become available for parents carrying toddlers or riding with bigger kids. Bike Works began a family biking initiative in 2012 and will offer south end classes and events throughout the year, expanding the offerings in Seattle. Other organizations

have embraced the concept of family biking as well, such as the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition. Kidical Mass Rides, started in Oregon in 2008, also have become popular in Seattle. Later in the summer, Cascade’s Cyclefest/ Bike Mania, a celebration of all things bike, with a Tour de France showing and kids’ bike activities, will take place on Thursday, July 18, at Seward Park.

After a highly successful 12-year career Jennie was ready to move on, go back to school and spend quality time with her family in the Puget Sound region. But then in 2009, changes to the Olympic Track Cycling Schedule were announced and Jennie’s old teammate and training partner, Sarah Hammer, called her asking if she had anything left in her tank. Sarah wanted a chance to compete in the new Olympic event–the Team Pursuit–and she wanted Jennie to join her. Jennie deliberated; in order to become a Team Pursuit rider she would have to transition into an endurance rider after have been a sprinter for 12 years. But the intrigue of attempting to do something which she wasn’t sure was physically possible, as well as the allure of becoming part of a team after racing as an individual for so many years, was too big to resist so Jennie returned to the track… Be sure to attend this presentation to hear the rest of Jennie Reed’s fantastic story with a fairytale ending.

Infrastructure proven to be safe, convenient and comfortable for people of all ages and abilities – things like cycle tracks, neighborhood greenways and urban trails – can often be controversial and opposed by people who don’t like the change in how we allocate space on our streets and public right of way. Indeed, just because there is a design and funding for a particular project doesn’t mean there is the community support or political will to build it. The purpose of this panel is to candidly explore the interactions and synergy between grassroots advocacy organizations, Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) staff and elected officials as projects and plans are designed, funded and implemented.

Snoqualmie Valley Unicycle Club 2:40 p.m. – 3:10 p.m. Performance Arena (See Saturday at 12:10 p.m. for description) The State of Professional Road Bicycle Racing 2:15 p.m. – 3:10 p.m. REI Main Stage (top floor) Fred Matheny, Mark Johnson, Jennie Reed and Jason Brayley, M.D, with Erik Moen Bicycling is at an interesting crossroad with the recent events involving Lance Armstrong. We saw a glance of systemic professional doping back in 1998 with the Festina squad. What should we do, allow some level of performance enhancements or continue with total ban? What should we think about professional cycling? Should we care that athletes take performance enhancing drugs? Erik Moen will host Fred Matheny (author, coach), Dr. Jason Brayley (Team Physician Kenda/5-Hour Energy Pro Cycling), and Mark Johnson (Team Garmin-Sharp-Barracuda writer and journalist) in a riveting discussion about professional bicycling history, recent events and future direction of the sport. Special Presentation: The Classic Lightweight Bike Show featuring “Drillium, Millium and Customization” This show runs all weekend on the ground level near the front door During the 1970s, the fad was lightening up your top-of-the-line racing bike by drilling and milling the parts in aesthetically pleasing styles. A new crop of collectors has rejuvenated this fad and produced some stunning bikes. If your classic bike has drilled, milled, lightened, polished pantographed parts, we invite you to display your bike!  As always, all classic lightweight bikes are welcome in this show, and the more the merrier. You will see British, Italian, French, American, Belgian, Japanese and other countries› bikes represented, in one of the most dazzling shows of fancy bikes anywhere. We also welcome «Keepers of the Flame» - modern custom lugged steel bikes equipped with classic style components. If you think your bike belongs in this show, please bring it. Bring your bike stand if you have one. Some stands will be available for loan but don›t count on it. Please contact Bob Freeman at Elliott Bay Bicycles, 206441-8144, for further information.  No need to sign up, just come. Best is to bring your bike in . If you come Saturday you will need to be in and set up by the 9:00 opening time.

S.M.A.R.T Riding Is No Accident Stay alert

Move off Road Act like a Car Retain Space Tell Others Layers of Prevention 1. Bike Control-Don’t fall or collide with others About half of cyclist crashes are single rider falls. If you skillfully control your bike, by starting, stopping, signaling and turning smoothly, you will not fall down all by yourself or run into other cyclists, cars, dogs and pedestrians.  2. Rule Observance-Don’t Cause traffic crashes For adult cyclists about half of the car/bike crashes are caused by cyclists who make unsafe decisions. Follow traffic laws, obey signs and signals and use correct lanes for turns and through movements, so you don’t cause a collision.

“Biking keeps you young because it’s fun. Bicycling is just like playing. Everyone should play more, it’s very healthy.”

ynne Watanabe is turning 50 this year but she’s feeling younger than she has in years. “I’m going to be 50 soon but I don’t feel like it. I feel like I’m still in my 30s! Biking keeps me young because it’s fun,” said Lynne, the mother of 17-year-old twins. “Bicycling is just like playing. Everyone should play more, it’s very healthy.” Last year, Lynne signed up for the Chilly Hilly, her first cycling event in years that so happened to be near her Bainbridge Island home. “It was kind of snowing, and I had to walk my bike up a few hills. But I did it, and it was my first big cycling event I had done in a long time,” she said. Lynne first got into biking while attending the University of Colorado in Boulder during the early 80s. “Everyone in Boulder is super healthy and everyone rode bikes. So I started riding. I learned how to use toe clips, and I rode everywhere. I even rode up to Rocky Mountain National Park,” Lynne recalled. A “heck of a long time later” – about 20 years – Lynne started riding with Cascade. “After riding the Chilly Hilly and getting introduced to Cascade, I wanted to do the STP and RSVP also,” Lynne said. So she signed up for the Cascade Training Series and started logging hundreds of miles. “Biking is like a moving meditation, and it’s such a high!” Lynne said. “I joined the moderate pace training group, rode every weekend and completed the one-day STP, Flying Wheels and RSVP. It was so encouraging; you ride with a group of people every weekend, you become friends and then you do all those events together.” After riding all those endurance events, Lynne decided she wanted to become a better technical rider and sought out a group that inspires her: women racers. “I’m not really competitive, I was really just looking to get better and make friends with women that ride and inspire me,” said Lynne. “I had never thought about racing. I

14

danced all my life and unless it was audition, dancing was not competitive. I have never even done a team sport.” But in October 2012, Lynne made the leap from recreational riding into racing by joining Team Group Health, the largest competitive women’s cycling team in the Pacific Northwest. She has spent the majority of the winter training with the team but still makes time for Cascade events and Cascade’s Free Daily Rides. “Al Miller, Jake Wright – the whole [ride leader] gang – they’re so great, I just can’t quit them,” she said. And after all that riding came passion. “I felt it was a natural progression to turn to advocacy,” she said. “I want to be an advocate for bicycling, especially for women.” Lynne attended the National Women’s Bicycling Summit in Long Beach, Calif. in September, returning with a desire to “spread the word about bicycling to women.” Lynne said she would like to see companies invest in women’s bicycling as women are great influencers of safer streets and healthier families and communities. “I have kids, I work and I’m committed to Team Group Health, but in the future I’d like to find time to lead rides on Bainbridge Island,” she said. Later this month, Lynne will be competing in her first ever bike race. “Yes, I’m nervous about racing but I’m also really excited!” she said. Good luck, Lynne!

hat do you get when you take a vacant lot that has been the neighborhood eyesore for years and turn it into a beautiful place that brings people together, increases food security and strengthens a community? You get a farm. Now in its third year, Alleycat Acres is an allvolunteer, grassroots urban farming collective that transforms underutilized urban spaces into a network of sustainable urban farms. Striving to put “culture” back into agriculture, the Alleycat Acres farms are open to anyone who is interested in growing food. The farms are able to flourish only because of the collective work of its members and communities surrounding the farms. “The harvests are shared with all members and within the immediate community of our farms,” said Leah AdangFry, site manager of the collective’s newest location on Martin Luther King Blvd. and Cherry St. “Any excess produce is delivered via bicycle to neighboring food banks.” The organization started its first farm in Beacon Hill, on a plot of land donated by a retired school teacher, and broke ground for a second farm in the Central District that same summer. In its first two years, more than 400 individuals contributed to grow more than 2,000 pounds of food on those two farms. The food not only fed everyone who had helped grow it and the neighborhoods surrounding the farms, it also supported local food banks. “We call it a farm not a garden because of the importance of it being functional space used for production. It’s also not a P-Patch; there are no individual plots. Everything is community,” said AdangFry. AdangFry, a former Seattle Tilth member, became part of Alleycat Acres when the organization acquired its third and newest location on MLK and Cherry, just blocks from her house. “All neighbors received a flyer about an upcoming design meeting for this vacant lot. I went to the meeting and got connected with Alleycat Acres,” she said. “All of our properties are privately owned and [the MLK lot] had been sitting vacant for 10 years,” said AdangFry. “The owner was really excited about doing something community oriented, and gave us a year-by-year lease.” AdangFry and volunteers spent most of last year designing and implementing. “We started from scratch. It was nothing but a grass and blackberry field. We laid down

mulch and build beds and experimenting with different soils,” AdangFry said. “We did grow quite a bit of food but more in an experimental capacity. The MLK farm should double if not triple its production this year.” The farms grow mainly vegetables but also some fruit. A small orchard was planted on the MLK farm – their largest site yet – which also houses a chicken coup and beehives. Work parties on weekends and summer evenings keep the farm healthy and productive. “We’re always looking for volunteers and welcome projects and experiments – from grain crops to multi-fruit trees,” said AdangFry. “We really want to emphasize that these are public spaces – spaces for people to be in and create community.” “It’s a lot, too, about displaying what’s possible in a city and showcase that sustainable urban farming is possible,” AdangFry said. Alleycat Acres welcomes schools and companies for field trips and are looking to host more workshops and events. “Our community base could be more diverse and we’re working on that,” said AdangFry. In addition to being community driven and socially charged, Alleycat Acres is also pedal powered. “We do have a strong bicycling component,” said AdangFry. “We fund our farming with biking, transport food by bikes and many of us don’t even have cars.” Bikes are a big part of Alleycat Acres’ mission of greening the city, and they use bikes in as many areas of our work as possible, utilizing cargo trailers to transport materials and produce. Additionally, each year Alleycat Acres hosts a fully-supported 40-to-70-mile bike ride, the Streets + Beets event, which serves as the organization’s biggest fundraiser of the year and covers the costs associated with all areas of keeping the farm running. “Biking is great because it makes you realize you’re capable of far more than you think you are,” said AdangFry, who completed her first Group Health Seattle to Portland ride last year. This year’s ride will take place on Saturday, May 4. The exact route is yet to be determined but will be designed in such a way that it can be accomplished by riders from any experience level, from beginning cyclists to hardcore commuters and racers.
