A new once-in-a-lifetime route!

Join 7,000+ of your friends for the third edition of the Emerald City Ride presented by Kaiser Permanente. This year's route will be another once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, giving registered riders the opportunity to bike on the SR 99 Viaduct and I-5 Express Lanes, both closed to vehicle traffic. 

Choose from a 12-mile full loop or 3-mile out and back on the Viaduct. Both routes will have views that can't be beat and access to roads normally not available to people riding bicycles. This ride is intended to be accessible to everyone who enjoys riding a bicycle!

Registered riders will receive a commemorative souvenir as a giveaway and we will have t-shirts available for purchase. Both routes are fully supported and the longer route will feature a rest stop with tasty treats. Ride details.

Monthly DVSS Meeting - November 2017

This month Michael Lewis and the UW crew return for a second time to share more about their design projects based on input from DVSS and others in the community.  Likelihood of pizza slices being offered at this meet-up are high.

Duwamish Valley Safe Streets is a group of Georgetown and South Park neighbors causing safer streets for people of all ages and abilities who walk, bike and roll in and around our neighborhoods. We’re into things like sidewalks,crosswalks, safe routes to school,streets into parks, speed limits, street lighting, tactical urbanism,  safe bike routes, and causing the Georgetown to South Park Trail!  If you are too, stop by one of our upcoming meet-ups held at a local, all ages venue (that often serve adult beverages too).

3rd Wednesday of the month 6:30—8:00 p.m.
