Cycling Into The Future

For the past eleven months the Main Street, Broadway, of Seaside has been closed. There has been much construction. New drainage systems, sidewalks extended with added seating, trees planted and bicycle parking added. Broadway was completely closedown for several months. This caused some of the existing businesses to shutdown……the word on the street was that money was coming into town from Carmel and Broadway was going to be completely remodeled “gentrified” some might say. The new plan will include multi use space….business and living.

Last night was the bicycle kick off!! Jack went to represent us, as I was volunteering at the CPA, in Carmel. Ironic?!

Seaside Creates-Official Headquarters
Board of Directors
We thought maybe this many might show up.
The article in The Weekly stated- Seaside is Rolling Into the Future with dock-less bike share! How exciting is this! This smiling man is Mike-he runs a bike messenger business and has several cargo bikes and delivers just about anything around the Monterey Peninsula.
Jack’s Surly is in good company. They were still painting the streets as the Grand Opening was kicking off.
Bamboo Bike
Jack liked that it was made in Oakland.
Board members bike.
Seaside – Riding into the future. We hope the future is Bright!!

Janet here of Jack and Janet in Seaside, CA. We just love to ride our bikes and share and read stories from other such afflicted souls.

      I remember your ofo ride…didn’t fit right as I recall! I saw in the paper where San Mateo was going to stop their “drop-off” bike program as they are being left all over the place. Will see if they get any use in Seaside not exactly a tourist destination. However many of our service industry workers only commute by bike. Might work for them?

    That board of directors look like they know what’s important! Great shot!

    Looked like a nice grand opening – I hope the bike share goes well. The bikes often get dumped over here in the capital city bike share schemes – I think the idea is sort of a ‘work in progress’ to figure out how to make them work well. The helmet laws over here are a bit of a deterrent, too.
