7 – 11 a.m. 

Ride car-free across the Alaskan Way Viaduct (before it's demolished), the Aurora Bridge, and the I-5 Express Lanes

Experience Seattle like never before! The new 2018 route includes (for the first time ever) the Alaskan Way Viaduct and Aurora Bridge – a truly historic experience. This year's Emerald City Ride is designed for riders of all ages and abilities with two rout options: a 12-mile full loop including a rest stop or a 3-mile out-and-back trip on the Viaduct.

Due to popular demand: online registration extended until 5 p.m. on Friday, April 6!

ECR commemorative bags

Registered riders will receive a commemorative souvenir, and yes, our iconic Emerald City Ride t-shirts will be available for purchase. Both routes are fully supported, and the longer route will feature a rest stop with tasty treats.

New location

This event will begin and end on E. Frontage Rd. S just west of Pyramid Alehouse in Seattle, WA. The Safeco Field parking garage will be available for off-street parking. On-street parking is free on Sundays in most areas, but the area around the Stadium is a high car prowl area, so please take appropriate precautions.

Rider packets

Look out for an envelope in the mail that says “Rider Packet” from Cascade. If you register after March 25, did not pay for packet mailing, or for some mysterious reason did not receive your packet, it will be available at the start line at 6 a.m.
