    Singlespeeder, new to Seattle

    Hi.

    Oh my goodness, look at those hills! Perhaps I'll chose a lower gear. . . My legs are gonna be hot.

    As far as I can tell, everyone drives here. Where can I meet all you bike folk?

    Welcome to Seattle! Check out Cascade Bicycle Club at www.cascade.org or the
    Seattle Bicycling club at www.seattlebike.org. If you have a single speed your are going to
    have legs of steel! The city of seattle has a free fairly decent bike map. If you work/live anywhere
    downtown, Bikestation at 311 3rd ave S (Pioneer Square) usually has copies, actually just
    log onto www.ci.seattle.wa.us/transportation/bikemaps.htm. All kinds of good info there,
    including King County maps, etc. Be aware that Seattle has a helmet law. I've not seen in enforced
    on Capitol Hill, or West Seattle, but you will get ticketed on the Burke-Gillman Trail and on the
    I-90 lid. Personally I never ride without my helmet

    Thanks for the info! I appreciate it. I just discovered that Recycled Cycles is very close to my house. Seems like an awesome shop.

    And yes, I wear a helmet all the time -- law or no law. Getting hit and landing on my head was really good incentive.
