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 will be part of the Bicycle Urbanism Symposium on Friday, June 21st.
The event occurs 3:00-7:00 p.m. with party to follow 7:00-9:00 p.m.
The scavenger hunt starts on the north side of Gould Hall, with the post-event party on the Gould Hall ground floor.
