    Default Seattle's Central District N-S Greenway

    The second video in my series about Seattle's neighborhood greenways, the Central District N-S Greenway features a couple of tools not found in the DC area. One of these is the installation of curb-adjacent crosswalk buttons that cyclists can use without needing to get onto the sidewalk. They can either activate crosswalk signals like a HAWK signal or flashing beacons to which drivers around here tend to actually respond, and the road markings have cyclists riding in or adjacent to the crosswalks where they might be most likely to be seen. There are a couple of them in this video, and I have found them to be a cool addition.

    I was able to do a bit better with minimization of the camera shake (I filmed the same day as for the Beacon Hill Greenway video, so there were similar issues), but future videos should be far less shaky (fingers crossed) as I have been filming with a more stable setup and more attention paid to taking things slowly.

    Default East Meets West

    I had some visitors from Virginia this past weekend that y'all might know. Since they were in town, I took Zach and Elena on a quick bike ride along the Burke-Gilman Trail, on and across the new SR 520 Bridge, and to Gas Works Park on Lake Union before heading back. We encountered some rain near the start, but it luckily subsided by the time we were halfway back across the 520 Bridge (the Seattle area is full of microclimates, and we were just on the edge of a rainstorm). I also took them to the Cascade Bicycle Club headquarters in Magnuson Park.

    While on the bridge, we encountered a few folks I know from the Cascade Bicycle Club who were out on a ride with the club's executive director on the right!

    After riding on the Burke-Gilman Trail through the University of Washington campus, I took them to Gas Works Park which sits on the north side of Lake Union.

    Do you like Fachwerk villages? Babenhausen, Hessen on the R4 cycle route was pretty neat although in pretty boring flat farm fields topography.

    I have enjoyed your videos and pictures from the Frankfurt area. Just curious, since you got to Babenhausen, have you crossed the Bavarian border to Aschaffenburg where my mother was born? I have been there several times but never by bike. My father was from Frankfurt.

    I've ridden to Aschaffenburg three or four times, most recently last September with kayakcyndi when my housing compound in Frankfurt had to evacuate for a WWII bomb disposal.

    Saw some WABA forum folks at the Frederick Watershed trailhead this morning. Hope y'all had fun too!

    Here's one of my "challenge" rocks (on Knuclebuster) that I like to play on if there's time.

    Hey! I went up that rock yesterday too! But from the other direction (coming towards blue). First time I'd actually made it (or really even had the courage to do more than ride up to it and slam on the brakes)
