Last week the University of Washington kicked of its annual Ride in the Rain contest with an award ceremony and panel discussion. Andy Clarke, president of the League of American Bicyclists, presented the UW with an award for achieving the League’s gold level for bicycle-friendly universities.The university’s over the last two years helped them reach this point and the university continues to work to improve cycling on the campus while shooting for the tough to reach platinum award. The appropriately rainy evening consisted of the award ceremony, an insightful and comical speech by Andy, as well as a panel discussion featuring key actors in Seattle’s movement towards a more cycling friendly city. I attended the event and would do a write-up, but Jack Truitt, a UW News Lab student, has already done a fantastic job. Read his article here.
