Greenways in Wiki Stix

Work on Ballard Neighborhood Greenways routing and promotion has been fun (wikistix!), and we're excited to show folks what routes look good to us, and get your opinion. Join us tomorrow July 31, 2011, as Ballard Greenways and friends ride the routes, and wind up at a good, old-fashioned Field Day event.

I'm out of town, but Jen will be leading the ride, and was happy to include the Kidical Mass crew. On this 4 mile on-street ride, if your kids don't yet ride in a reasonably straight line or stop reliably, then they’re probably safer on a trailer, trail-a-bike, cargo bike, etc ...

Come join Ballard Greenways as we ride our favorite routes in Ballard! This is a family-friendly easy-going ride that will start and finish at the Ballard  Library, just in time for the Summer Field Day at Ballard Commons Park. We like quiet streets, with easy crossings as great routes for people of all ages to get around the neighborhood.

We’ll meet at the Ballard Library at 2:30 and leave at 3:00. We’ll ride some of our proposed Greenway routes and be back at the library by 4:00, just in time for the Summer Field Day.
