Listen, far-flung islands,
pay attention, faraway people:
God put me to work from the day I was born.
The moment I entered the world he named me.
He gave me speech that would cut and penetrate.
He kept his hand on me to protect me.
Isaiah 49:1-2ish (context)
On Friday I will co-teach my first-ever bike-related class with Every. The Bicycle Alliance has partnered with Commute Seattle to do a one-hour brown-bag lunch class on winter bike commuting. Here are the details:
Commute Seattle is hosting a Winter Bike Seminar on Friday, January 29th to discuss the best practices for winter bike commuting. Bike commuting experts Every Day and Katie Ferguson from the Bicycle Alliance of Washington will offer tips for staying safe, navigating dark streets, and staying warm and dry in the rain. This is a chance to learn tips and tricks to best outfit yourself and your bicycle to make bike commuting an enjoyable way to get to work year round.
All attendees will receive a Commute Seattle bike light and will be entered into a drawing to win a $25 REI gift certificate.
• When: Friday, January 29th, 12:00pm-1:00pm
• Where: GGLO Space at the Steps; (1301 First Ave, Level A Enter through door located about 1/4 of the way down the Harbor Steps)
Seattle Bike Maps will be available as well as other maps and handouts on commuting resources.
Bring your lunch, your experience, and your questions!
This event is free, but please register by RSVPing to info *at* commuteseattle.com.
I have officially started the internship as of last Wednesday, and although I continue to flail and feel unsure of what exactly I’m doing, I also am starting to see a vague outline of what I’m aiming for. Right now I am looking to talk to managers of well-run volunteer programs to pick their brains about what works, what doesn’t work, how they’d do what I have to do. If you have any nominations for nonprofits with great volunteer programs, please let me know.
In other news, Dad and I went to Waverly Park in Kirkland and took pictures this weekend. Here are some results.
