Luckily for Sightline’s resident Master Bicyclist, Seattle just released an extensive new $32 million Bicycle Master Plan. It’s awesome.

My favorite element—out of sheer selfishness—is this: a proposal for a dedicated bicycle bridge spanning the ship canal alongside my ‘hood’s bike-unfriendly Ballard Bridge. Sweet.

The Emerald City has a bit of catching up to do, in order to make bicycling as popular as it is in, say, Portland. But the city’s new plan is a giant step in the right direction.
