After my hugely successful ride on Day 1 in Seattle, I pushed my bike out of the motel on Day 2 with a lot more confidence, a little better idea of where I was going and excited about what I would discover. On my first day I explored the Northern part of the city. On this day I would venture to West Seattle.
Studying a bicycle map on-line, I concluded that there was a bike path that would take me to the West Seattle Low Level Bridge where I could ride over the river. I rode from the motel down, down, down to the waterfront and sure enough found the bike path which I confidently took to the South. I rode for a mile or so before I discovered that the trail was closed due to road construction. However, my dear readers, do not lose heart. I am in Seattle, and wouldn't you know it, they have bike detour signs that take me on an alternate path around the construction. Can you believe it - BIKE DETOUR SIGNS - How cool is that???
The road leading up to the Low level Bridge was lined bumper to bumper with Semis making their way to the shipping terminal.
I reached the bridge and there was a nice, safe separated bike path to lead me across. Upon reaching the opposite shore, I simply followed the signs for the Alki trail.
