CHS Pics | Rapha Seattle debuts with grueling E Pine hill stage

IMG_7900

A new addition to Pike/Pine’s retail landscape had better get used to starting its events with a hillclimb. Rapha Seattle debuted last week at Melrose and Pine. Saturday morning, the international cycling brand’s shop held its inaugural group ride — a two hour or so tour to Mercer Island beginning with the notoriously exhausting E Pine hill stage.

CHS Pics | A day at Capitol Hill Station

IMG_4047

Around 7,000 riders utilize Capitol Hill Station on any given weekday. As expected, it has become a new center of the neighborhood — and a high speed portal connecting us to a new spine through Seattle. You may have found yourself at the University of Washington or in Pioneer Square more often since the service started in March 2016. Friday, Sound Transit, perhaps shy after some of the negative reaction to its launch celebration of the U-Link line, perhaps busy with larger concerns, will hold a small, few-hour party across the Broadway light rail station and its sister UW Station.

Capitol Hill Station 1st Birthday Celebration

We visited the other CHS and joined its riders this week to capture the line as it looks and feels today and as a kind of thank you. It’s a good train. With worries about what comes next for big projects like it, we should celebrate it.

Maybe someday soon, Emerald City Comicon can be even bigger. But we like it best when the cosplay spills out of the halls of the Washington State Convention Center and onto the streets below Capitol Hill. Here are some of the characters we found Friday en route to and from the convention.IMG_9824 Continue reading

Pavement to Parks, Summit & Denny

A stretch of relatively dry winter days means any ghosts wandering around E Olive Way had better be on the lookout. A Seattle Department of Transportation crew has been at work installing the area’s latest pavement park, a now Pac-Man-themed stretch of street on a small section of Summit Ave E between E Denny Way and E Olive Way.
