The Mean Streets of Seattle

The Ave and Campus Parkway
Twelve people in Washington have been killed while riding bikes so far this year.

The most recent deaths were last weekend, two, one outside Port Angeles and another just a few blocks from here.

The average is 10 a year.

I'm curious, though, about how many more are seriously injured. So far this year I have seen two downed cyclists, alive but laid the fuck out. One back in June, and another in August, on Ravenna Boulevard. No cars appeared to be involved in that one.

Two in one year seems like a lot for one person to see.
