VIDEO: Dead Baby Bikes Downhill 2018’s White Center rollout

For a little while on Saturday evening, bicycle traffic took over northbound traffic on 16th SW in downtown White Center. The occasion – the Dead Baby Bikes Downhill, maybe the wildest ride in the metro area every year. Riders gathered at Drunky’s Two Shoes BBQ before taking off. It’s a party on wheels as well as a spectacle.

Many bikes had personalities all their own:

Riders’ gear packed personality too:

That’s Mike Shaughnessy from West Seattle. The riders numbered in the hundreds – we lost count – and headed for Georgetown.

This was the 22nd DBB Downhill

  1. Wish I would have heard about this ahead of time. Sounds like quite a spectacle to behold.

  2. They don’t really have a publicity person … we’re lucky to have heard about it from two decidedly unofficial sources. We did publish an advance mention here and also included it in the WSB every-morning “happening today” list since it’s the first time in some years we’ve heard about it leaving from WS *or* WC.
