DC’s first-ever Open Streets: we’re impressed (and want more)!
Woah! The District of Columbia’s first-ever Open Streets was on October 5th and we had so much fun!
How about you? How did you enjoy our car-free streets? Did you do some dancing? Did you ride your bike with child-like joy? Did you grab a bite with your friends and family at any of Georgia Avenue’s businesses?
We were busy encouraging family-friendly biking at our ABCs of Family Biking, teaching bike (and scooter) safety skills at our Confident City Cycling class, and promoting low-stress, high-joy riding on our pumpkin pop-up protected bike lane. (Check out the gallery below to get a glimpse of all the fun!)
But we also took a few minutes to take it all in and visualize what streets for people, everywhere, all the time looks like. And, we want it to happen again, and again, and again.
Do you want that, too? Then let Mayor Muriel Bowser know how great the event was and that you want more! Email the Mayor’s Office to share your favorite moment of the day or answer her call on Twitter. (Feel free to personalize your message to the Mayor – share your favorite part of Open Streets!)
