Mayor Ed Murray announces Move Seattle levy By Jeff Aken, Advocacy Director
PRSRT STD US Postage Paid Seattle, WA PERMIT No. 2172
With Seattle’s current transportation levy set to expire at the end of 2015, Mayor Ed Murray last month announced an ambitious transportation levy to fund the Move Seattle plan, Murray’s 10-year transportation vision that integrates transit, walking, biking, driving and freight. The nine-year, $900 million proposal would replace the existing Bridging the Gap levy, which was $365 million over nine years. What does the proposed levy mean for people who bike in Seattle? The levy would: • Build 50 miles of protected bike lanes and 60 miles of greenways, which equates to 50 percent of the “citywide network” identified in the Bicycle Master Plan (BMP). • Build the Missing Link segment of the Burke-Gilman Trail and the Northgate Bicycle/Pedestrian Bridge. • Complete safe walking and bike routes to all Seattle public schools. • Complete 7-10 multimodal corridor projects that should

improve conditions for all people choosing to ride a bike, walk, use transit or drive. • Build bicycle and pedestrian connections to light rail stations. • Install over 1,500 new bicycle parking spots citywide. We applaud Mayor Murray for his vision and dedication to creating a Seattle in which all people can travel safely, conveniently and quickly. The levy is critical to make this vision a reality, and Cascade will work with its partners and the city to pass the levy. As Mayor Murray said, the levy will not meet all of Seattle’s transportation needs and additional funding will be needed to fully implement the BMP over its 20-year horizon. Cascade will continue to work with the city to find additional funding sources to fully implement the BMP’s vision of a network of safe, connected and convenient bikeways.
I hate hills

Cascade to continue endorsements Last month, the board directors of the Cascade Bicycle Club voted to continue its political activities. A joint task force between the Cascade Bicycle Club and the Cascade Bicycle Club Education Foundation has been created to recommend how best to restructure the organization to become more efficient. See more in Elizabeth Kiker’s letter on page 2.

*Happy April Fools - enjoy the ride!
Honest conversations By Elizabeth Kiker, Executive Director
When I arrived at Cascade, I was immediately surprised by the many people who knew my name, knew about my resume (“so, you worked at the pest control association, huh?”) and were excited to welcome me to this new job. On my first day, I met at least 100 people—all of whom knew about me. While I had been a bicycle advocate for eight years at that point, my experience had been very different. Bicycle advocacy at the national level is about similar work, in that we focused on transportation bills, bike education and safety for bicyclists, but lonelier. National advocates work together—often for decades—but very few volunteer advocates are able to join us on Capitol Hill week after week, year after year. The more I’ve gotten to know Cascade over this past year and a half, the more I’ve seen the power of your commitment to our work, your willingness to step forward and discuss complicated issues and your demand that our board and staff be working on behalf of bicycling in the Puget Sound region in a way that feels authentic and strong to all of our members.
“The board voted strongly to affirm Cascade’s continuing commitment to political advocacy and individual endorsements—even choosing our early endorsements that night—in a fantastic ending to a complicated story.” The recent conversations the board and staff had over the tax status of the club and its foundation certainly reinforced this notion. I was surprised at the knowledge and passion of supporters—of both sides!—who contacted us. As the board and staff debated internally, we were helped enormously by the member meetings, Facebook threads and conversations that this idea sparked. Cascade is a very strong organization, and the staff and board are committed to growing its size, scope and influence. Our journey of figuring out the best tax status going forward was helped immeasurably by listening to members, hearing the feedback and even being told by a couple of members, “I’m not sure which is the right way, but I am so glad that you are all thinking about it.” The board voted strongly to affirm Cascade’s continuing commitment to political advocacy and individual endorsements— even choosing our early endorsements that night—in a fantastic ending to a complicated story. Thank you for speaking up, thank you for supporting Cascade, thank you for creating the energy, passion and excitement that is the Cascade Bicycle Club. You are what makes Cascade who we are today, and who we will be in the future. Best,

Never too old to learn By Kalpana Kanal, Cascade member
In my 47 years of life, I never learned how to ride a bicycle, and the first time I heard about Cascade Bicycle Club was when I went for my annual check-up with my endocrinologist. My doctor is a bicycle commuter, and like most doctors, he practices and preaches the benefits of exercise. He’s always worried about my stress level and my lack of exercise. He suggested I join Cascade so I could learn how to ride a bike and make bicycling a part of my daily exercise. So I Cascade classes and one-on-one contacted Cascade and signed up for the After sessions, Kalpana is now riding confidently. “Learning to ride” class, a one-on-one class with an instructor. I was extremely apprehensive about learning how to ride–more importantly, scared of falling–which I did several times. My instructor was extremely patient with me and helped me learn the basics during several sessions of this class. I have him to thank for giving me the confidence to overcome my fears. After several classes and the “Back to basics” class, I actually felt comfortable riding. A follow-up with more one-on-one time with another instructor helped me gain even more confidence. I did my first ride around the park and then on the road. You can never be too old to learn a new thing. What an achievement, at least to me! I am getting better every day, and I hope to someday be a bicycle commuter like my doctor. Thanks to my doctor for suggesting the idea. Thanks to Cascade for teaching me how to ride a bike well, giving me the confidence to overcome by fear and helping me get in shape! Learn more about Cascade’s class offerings at cascade.org/learn.
By Josh Miller, Community Education Program Manager
Here at Cascade we have been developing new community partnerships and expanding our programs to serve a broader range of Seattle area residents. The core idea is to offer a range of programs for youth and adults that connect people with bike resources that help them fulfill their day-to-day needs. This can include riding, maintenance education and encouragement, traffic safety programs, advocacy training and more. We are focusing energy on Sand Point and Yesler Terrace communities to start with and engaging a total of 13 partner organizations in the two communities. In January we did a bike giveaway at Sand Point in collaboration with Bike Works. We gave away more than 30 bikes with helmets, lights and locks. To support the use and upkeep of these bikes, we are offering evening drop-in sessions for adults and youth. At the drop-in session held in February, we were able to repair several bikes for kids while hearing about what programs would be fun and useful to them in the future. We are excited to announce we will offer more formal maintenance and riding classes at Sand Point and Yesler in the coming months, and we are excited to see where these collaborative ventures can take these communities. For details about classes or to volunteer, email Josh at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Machiko Threlkeld: Exceptional Ride Leader By Stacey Williams, Rides Manager
Machiko Threlkeld has been recognized as an Exceptional Ride Leader for her efforts in recruiting, retaining and valuing ride leaders. Machiko originally started riding in Tokyo as a mode of transportation. Her evolution into a Cascade Ride Leader started with her own goal of competing in a sprint triathlon, losing weight and being “green” by commuting in 2011. Machiko was even able to buy a new bike with the money she saved on gas and parking. Machiko’s love of the outdoors motivates her to ride. She enjoys the Machiko and her son Alder enjoy riding sensory experiences of riding: the together. smells of seasonal change, the sounds of birds chirping, flowers blooming and of course, the Seattle rain. Machiko regularly posts leisurely and steady-paced rides, as she enjoys sharing her joy of riding with people who are new to bike riding or new to Seattle and see their development and growth. “See[ing] more relaxed smiles and confidence on their faces after a ride is very exciting,” says Machiko. Machiko says she rides with Cascade because she enjoys the collaboration of so many people–with different backgrounds and different varieties of bikes– all working together towards the same goal: getting more people to ride.

Women bike: a few bike hacks that can come in handy for every bicyclist
Eastside spotlight: progress along the East Lake Sammamish Trail
By Anne-Marije Rook, Communications Director
By McKayla Dunfey, Eastside Policy & Government Affairs Coordinator
Got a flat? Soggy shoes? Missing bar ends? MacGyver your way out of some common nuisances with these bike hacks:
• Measure the needed length of the chain by looping the chain through the saddle rails and the seat stays. You’ll want it fairly tight so the chain doesn’t swing around when you ride. • Break the chain at the desired length, keeping in mind that you’ll have to reconnect one link. • Thread the chain through an equally long piece of inner tube. • Loop the chain-tube combo back through the rails and seat stays and connect the chain.
Got caught in the rain? Use an old Courier to dry your shoes! News paper is absorbent and will draw the moisture out of your shoes fairly quickly. For completely drenched shoes, you may have to replace the newspaper a time or two.
To keep your waterbottles clean and hygienic, you should wash them after every ride, especially when using hydration products. Dish soap can leave a funky taste so use a bit of baking soda and hot water instead. To let them dry, I use a baby bottle drying rack. It keeps the bottle upright, takes up little counter space and I can fit at least four bottles and lids at a time!
Cold, wet commute ahead? Slip your feet in sandwich baggies before putting on your shoes. They will keep out the rain and wind! A one-dollar fix
Pssshhhhhhh…a sharp object just slashed your tire. Not to worry. A dollar bill will get you home. • Take the inner tube and tire off the rim • replace or mend the tube • place a dollar bill on the inside of the tire over the gash. If the gash isn’t very big, fold the dollar bill in half before placing it over the tear for extra strength. • Place the tire and tube back on the rim • pump up your tire and you’re on your way! Reuse your old inner tube
From jewelry to bags, there are numerous ways to reuse inner tubes. One utilitarian way to repurpose your old tubes is to use them instead of bungee cords to tie down items on your bike rack. They’re lightweight, waterproof and fairly strong so you can just leave them on your rack or carry one in your bag.
No more hot embro showers
If you wear warming embrocation, you’re probably familiar with what happens when warm water reignites the warming sensation post-ride. To prevent that from happening, slather your legs with Blue Dawn dish soap and rinse off in the shower. Ride comfortably in a skirt
Do you like wearing skirts but are afraid of showing ‘too much’ when riding? All you need is a penny and a rubber band to keep it classy. The solution is so simple, I can’t even describe it. Google “Peny in Yo’ pants” to watch the how to video.
Cascade is encouraging the city of Sammamish and King County to expedite the permitting and building of the East Lake Sammamish Trail. Photo courtesy of King County Parks.
Last month, King County Parks and Recreation Director Kevin Brown presented an update on trail designs for the East Lake Sammamish Trail, specifically, the southern section of the trail known as South Sammamish Segment A. For those of you who have been following the project since the beginning (since 1998, to be exact) you know that it’s been a long and challenging road. Though many trailside homeowners express concerns around trail development, the rest of the region looks forward to its completion so everyone will be able to ride on an off-street trail that connects the Puget Sound in Seattle all the way to the foothills of the Cascades. Our enthusiasm for this project cannot be understated. Cascade made the following recommendations on trail development at the Sammamish city council meeting on Tuesday, March 10: • We highly encourage the city of Sammamish and King County to expedite the permitting and trail building process. • We highly encourage the city of Sammamish and King County to build out a trail that’s safe for everyone, meets national trail width standards where possible and maintains a shoulder where possible to reduce the risks of collusion and injuries. • We support a trail that’s wide enough for bicyclists and pedestrians to safely travel in both directions, and a trail that’s wide enough for homeowners to safely cross the trail. We look forward to the day parents will be able to safely ride or walk along the trail with their children, while bike commuters and recreational riders will have the option of choosing a comfortable off-street route on their way to Issaquah, Redmond or even all the way to the Burke-Gilman in Seattle. The East Lake Sammamish Trail is the 11-mile missing link in this 44-mile network that will become an incredible asset to our region, and we look forward to its completion. We urge King County and the City of Sammamish to continue working together to make this trail a reality. If you’d like to be involved with this project or other Eastside work, please email McKayla at McKaylaD@Cascade.org.
No more missing bar ends
Do you keep losing your bar plugs? Then save the corks of the next two bottles of wine you drink and use them to replace your bar end caps. A wine cork fits snugly into the ends of most handlebars, stays put and gives your bike a retro look.
Prevent saddle theft
Worried about getting your spendy Brooks saddle stolen? Use an old chain to tie your saddle to your bike’s seat stays (the rear triangle) to prevent theft. You’ll need an old chain, an old inner tube, and a chain breaker. 10

Early member spotlight: Amy Carlson By Briana Orr, Communications Specialist
Infuriated that the city ignored the needs of people walking and biking, Amy joined Cascade’s Bicycle Action Committee (the then-advocacy arm of Cascade) in 1974. She started coming to the the monthly Cascade meetings, which included a ride around Mercer Island, and a potluck before getting down to business.
In 1970, a small group of active cyclists gathered in a basement on Mercer Island. Little did these individuals know that they were going to change the future of bicycling in the Puget Sound region. Forty-five years later, the Cascade Bicycle Club is the largest bicycling organization of its kind in the U.S. with more than 15,000 members, 1,000 volunteers and 38 staff. Here we highlight a few of Cascade’s earliest members, hear how their involvement changed the course of their lives and find out what they’re up to today.
“I don’t bicycle as far and as fast as I used to, but I still like to go ride. It still gives me–like when I was a kid– the sense of freedom and going with the wind.” - Amy Carlson, Cascade early member.
Early Cascade member Amy Carlson rode
Amy Carlson lived in Europe for the first STP and the first RSVP, and her first century was Chilly Hilly. She still rides today. a few years and bought a five-speed. Photo courtesy of Mike Hooning. She remembers bicycling was “a way of life, just a way of getting around” in the cities in Germany and England she lived in. When Amy returned to the U.S. she wanted to continue bicycling, but was faced with substantial barriers. She lived in Bellevue and was studying at the University of Washington (UW). The 520 bridge had just opened, but didn’t include a path or sidewalk for biking or walking. Her only option was to take the I-90 bridge, which increased her commute to 18 miles one-way.

Amy was the chair of the Bicycle Action Committee for a number of years. She also served as Cascade’s president in the ‘70s. She was actively involved in making sure the I-90 bridge included a 10-foot-wide path for people walking and riding across, instead of the six-foot path originally proposed. Overall, Amy remembers the 1970s and 1980s as “a time of having to fight to make sure that the bicycle voice was heard.” In addition to advocating for better bikeways, Cascade played a role in getting a bicycle coordinator for the city of Seattle, which shifted the conversation to include the needs of those who bicycle when updating any infrastructure, Amy noted. When she wasn’t advocating for better bikeways, Amy also rode her bicycle for fun. She rode the first STP and RSVP, and recalls her first century was Chilly Hilly–when the ride used to take participants around Bainbridge Island four times! Amy said she was not the only woman on two wheels involved in Cascade, “there were a lot of us!” she exclaimed, adding that she is still friends with many women she met in her early days at Cascade. Amy’s retired now, and she still commutes to the UW(now just 3.5 miles away from her home) to take all the “fun classes” that didn’t fit in when she was getting her civil engineering degree–subjects like history, geology, music and art history. “I don’t bicycle as far and as fast as I used to, but I still like to go ride. It still gives me–like when I was a kid–the sense of freedom and going with the wind,” said Amy. Now, forty years later, we are nearing the day when we will be able to walk and bicycle across the 520 bridge, thanks to activists like Amy.

Personal Gold: an underdog cycling story you won’t want to miss! By Anne-Marije Rook, Communications Director
U.S. women’s track cycling medal in over 20 years! Among them was Kirkland native Jennie Reed, a World and U.S. Champion who got her cycling start right here, on our local Marymoor Velodrome. The incredible feat and story of Reed and the rest of 2012 U.S. women’s team pursuit squad has been captured beautifully in Sky Christopherson’s latest documentary, Personal Gold. Praised and marketed as “the best underdog story since Rocky”, Personal Gold follows these underfunded athletes during their last two months of preparation leading up to the Olympics during which they turned to friends, family and a grassroots Digital Health experiment using ‘Data not Drugs’ to attempt the impossible: win the first U.S. Women’s Track Cycling Medal in more than 20 years.
Saturday, April 11 Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The Kirkland Performance Center Q&A with the Olympians following the film Proceeds benefit our local Marymoor Velodrome and the Jennie Reed Foundation. Tickets available at: www.kpcenter.org/performances/personal-gold

2012 was a bad year for American competitive cycling. It’s the year that Lance Armstrong received his lifetime ban and was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles. And in the midst of the controversy, his former teammates withdrew from the summer Olympics, placing the hopes for an Olympic cycling medal on the women. And the women delivered: Kristin Armstrong secured the gold in the individual time trial, Georgia Gold received a bronze medal in cross-country mountain biking and Sarah Hammer earned a silver medal in the women’s omnium. But perhaps the most inspiring story came from the four underdog track cyclists who, on August 4, 2012, took home the silver Olympic medal in the women’s team pursuit – the first

“You don’t have to be an athlete to see the film. It’s for anyone who’s ever been told they couldn’t do something. It’s a story about perseverance. An underdog, Rocky, Rags-to-riches story.” - Jennie Reed, U.S. and world champion track cyclist
This April, Cascade members are invited to a private showing of Personal Gold with Olympians Jennie Reed, Sarah Hammer and Dotsie Bausch in attendance.
