Cycling in and around Seattle
Biking is one of our favorite ways to get around the city, whether we’re commuting to one of our offices, exercising, or just out to enjoy the PNW. We know it can also be a scary city to bike around, with lots of one-way streets and bicycles smaller than almost every other vehicle on the road. While many communities in our area are making biking safer, bicycle accidents are still common.
Seattle’s bicycle safety measures don’t always prevent injury
While it’s encouraging to see the city and state investing in safety features like bike-only boxes in intersections, dedicated lanes, and special trails to connect neighborhoods, these features aren’t everywhere, and don’t always prevent bicycle accidents. Serious and sometimes fatal injuries are common when a car, truck or bus hits a cyclist.
