Bumps in the road

One truly awful thing about the Burke-Gilman Trail is that sections of it are in pretty bad shape. If this was a road that cars traveled on, these bumps wouldn't be a big deal. But ride across them on your bike, and you'll feel like your teeth are going to rattle out of your head. Most of the damage appears to be caused by tree roots, not bicycles.

Cascade Bicycle Club does a lot of advocacy work, and one of their big issues is getting the Burke-Gilman trail fixed in those places where it's getting really rough. They face a lot of opposition, especially in Lake Forest Park. You can read more about their advocacy work at
