Ride Description: 

Join us for a post-Thanksgiving ride from Gas Works Park on a 32-mile route at a steady pace (12-14 MPH)! On this ride around north Seattle, we will take in the view from Ballard's Sunset Park, head to Lake Forest Park for lunch, and visit Meadowbrook Pond—a scenic spot with an important flood-control function.  

Let's meet at the parking lot at Gas Works Park and please be ready to ride at 10 a.m. We will start with a required safety briefing, and roll out when that's done.  If you miss the briefing you will not be able to ride with the group.

We will climb and descend hills at our own pace, and our goal will be to regroup occasionally.

Restrooms and water are available at the start. There are also restrooms at miles 8.6 and 15. We’ll stop for lunch at Third Place Commons in Lake Forest Park, at mile 18. Food options there are Honey Bear Bakery and Gyro Boss.

Bring a spare tube and tools to fix a flat, just in case. Please have full fenders if the roads are wet, or you may be asked to ride at the rear of the group. A bike lock is a good idea, too, as the bike racks at our lunch stop are not in view from the seating area inside.

Note: If weather conditions meet the weather cancellation criterion listed above or if there are unforeseen hazardous riding conditions or other unexpected events, the Ride Leader will post a ride-canceled note in the Comments section below at least two hours prior to the start and Ride Leader(s) will not be at the start location.

We hope you can join us!

Comments

Would like to join this group ride. Please let me know if someone cancels.

Thanks

 

I'll let you know if I notice a cancellation. I do not get any notices, so the only way I know is by seeing it here. Which means you may see it before I do. Typically there are some cancellations the night before a ride, especially if the weather forecast looks iffy.

The forecast is for less than 50% chance of showers, so it's a go! Best to be prepared for some drizzle. One spot open as of now.
