Seattle - three years ago, this fast-growing, hilly city of 725,000 people took a huge leap toward a longtime civic dream: becoming a place where it’s easy to live without driving every day or without owning a car at all.

Help us "Break the Cycle" of Hunger at the 2019 Wheels to Meals on June 15, 2019
We're bringing back the Wheels to Meals this year, but with a twist. Rather than a variety of courses through the Puyallup Valley, we are holding this year's ride on a one mile loop in Swan Creek Park. Riders can ride as far as they want and never be more than 1/2 mile from a rest stop! The course is in Swan Creek Park and is on paved roads from the former neighborhood Salishan neighborhood. The one mile loop will allow riders of different abilities to ride together off and on as their pace allows, and also provide riders with a chance to push their stamina without worrying about having to make it back to the finish area since they will always be less than 1/2 mile away from a rest stop.
This is from a rider at another event on this one mile loop:
"Swan Creek is a park that doesn't get the credit it deserves. The Century was absolutely amazing. The abandoned streets are very peaceful and you really can't beat the forested surroundings. The best part- NO CARS; you are free to ride as fast or slow as you want. You can have conversations with other riders, and supporters can line the streets with chairs, snacks, and coolers, and make a day of it (getting cheered on is a pretty good feeling as well). It is definitely one of the cooler rides I've taken part in." - Joe Korbuszewski

The hard truth is that bicycles are still largely seen as a nuisance on the road. We’re on the margins—literally. Cyclists are reminded of this every time we get skimmed by a car. According to the World Health Organization, over half of international traffic deaths involve vulnerable road users such as cyclists. And because Americans are among the least avid cyclists in the world, they’re among the most likely to get killed by a car.
But I’ve discovered a life-saving device that allows cyclists to protect themselves and take back the road: the pool noodle.

John Neller - Boeing Employees Bicycle Club
June 8-11 from Portland to Eugene
Credit Card Tour
Space available for 2 riders from TWBC
If interested please continue reading.
Hello, my name is John Neller, and I am a member of the Boeing Employees Bicycle Club, living in Auburn WA. In addition to being a cyclist, I am also an enthusiastic train rider, and a member of Rail Passengers of America (RPA), a rail advocacy organization. As such I have often combined bicycle rides with trains, both in the US and abroad. I have found this to be a good combination of modes of transportation, allowing me to extend bike trips without having to ‘double back’, and to visit locations that would otherwise be too far apart to incorporate in a single bike trip.
