Imagine a 7.2-magnitude earthquake hitting the Seattle Fault. Freeway overpasses crumble, a Lake Washington sieche (oscillating wave) takes chunks out of bridges. Motor vehicles are rendered useless, but following the example of Sandy Relief by bike, Seattle residents with bikes and trailers or cargo bikes are able to transport food and medical supplies.

Seattle’s first Disaster Relief Trials was part of the Bicycle Urbanism Symposium on Friday, June 21st, 2013.

Enjoy this short documentary from Portland’s 2012 DRT:

  1. I want to know more about the “FamilyRide: Save the date for disaster” event. Please email me the details! It’s not listed on the schedule for the Bicycle Urbanism Symposium. Do you have any contact info?
