Riding on the Burke-Gilman Trail in Fremont

Since May is Bike Month around the world, I am devoting my Outdoors blog posts for the next few weeks to urban bicycle commuting around Seattle. I will be virtually following two urban bike commuters as they make their way to and from work every day on two wheels under their own power, and I will personally be doing all the grocery shopping for myself and family members by bicycle (since I work from home). Stay tuned throughout the month for trip reports, helmet-cam video snippets, gear reviews and other goodies for cyclists of all kinds.
