Lake Washington Boulevard

Today we drove the bikes down to Seward Park for the weekly Lake Washington Boulevard bike ride. Every Sunday (Mother’s Day through September) cars are banned so families can bike up and down. There was also a small Family Biking Expo going on, with several cargo bikes available for test rides. We didn’t see anything new, but realized just how popular Xtracycles are up here. I let a mom test drive my bike, but she seemed to be leaning towards a Madsen so she could ferry four kids (four kids!) to school.

We rode through Seward Park to finish up the day and saw a kid fall off his little bike and hurt his elbow. This happened moments before Dan got a bug in his eye so the park will forever now be called “Elbow Eye Park” because Brandt keeps saying “elbow eye, elbow eye” (and sometimes “papa bug eye, elbow eye”).
