Tell us your biking stories

Our sister site, Maple Leaf Life, posted this story earlier today (we’ve tweaked it a little bit for Fremont!):

Today, Bike to Work Day, we and our news partners The Seattle Times are wondering just how safe you are in getting from here to there on two wheels.

We’re also looking for commute stories, not just from today, but any good tales of biking to work. Or, for that matter, from people who would rather NOT share the road with bikes.

In honor of National Bike to Work Day, The Times has put together ten worst examples of dangerous or neglected cycling corridors in Seattle. They also have a big “Seattle bike culture” story in Pacific Magazine this Sunday.

Fremont isn’t on that worst 10 list, nor are the usual routes from here to downtown, unless you commute through the north end of the University Bridge.

Here’s one you might identify with, though – the Burke-Gilman Trail at 25th Avenue Northeast. The “missing link” of the trail in Ballard and the south end of the Ballard Bridge are on the list, too.

Other hot spots on the Times list:

  • Sodo bikeway to nowhere
  • Ruts on Jackson Street
  • Bellevue gap in 520 trail
  • North Linden Street (Shoreline)
  • Marysville to Everett
  • Second Avenue
