Get on your bike — join us for a fun new Free Group Ride summertime series!

Ready to explore Seattle on a low-pace, social and educational bike ride? Get on your bike! 

Join us for a free ride every Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. now until the end of August (except Sunday, Aug. 14), and ride with friends old and new! These rides are geared towards riders who are new, returning or open to learning! 

Our rides will be between three and 10 miles long, and we'll stay together as a group going 10 mph or less, with the slowest rider setting the pace. We'll explore the least hilly routes around Capitol Hill and the Central District, and learn together about safe group riding skills, urban cycling techniques, Seattle bike infrastructure, how to make riding Seattle terrain (hills!) more comfortable and fun, and some basic bike mechanics.

Bike-attached children are welcome. Please check in with the ride leader at least 24 hours in advance for kids who plan to ride on their own bike. Theme and length varies week to week, so check out each week's plan to make sure it's a good fit for your kiddos.

Our rides will celebrate our beautiful and exciting city, and will be jam-packed with interesting Seattle factoids. For instance, did you know Umoja Fest, the annual African American community festival and parade that has been running for more than 60 years is credited as the inspiration for SeaFair? Ride there with us on Sunday, Aug. 7 to learn more!

Below are the links to the rides on Cascade's community calendar. They are also all on Cascade's FGR meetup calendar. So what are you waiting for? Get on your bike and join us for a ride!
