Photos: Disaster Relief Trials – Cargo Bikes check-in at West Seattle Hubs

We had great weather and a great time last Sunday at the Disaster Relief Trials in West Seattle. As described in our previous post, four of our West Seattle hubs and the West Seattle Tool Library participated as checkpoints for the riders in this exercise.

Following are some photos that I captured of the activities.
