Ride Description: 

Whether or not you are a 30 Days of Biking pledge, come out for this easy, scenic, and fun ride featuring waterfront vistas, riding on both streets and trails, plus coffee and food stops!  We'll start  on the Burke Gilman Trail on the sidewalk by the foot of the Wallingford Steps.  This is located on the north side of North Northlake Way, between Densmore Ave. N.  and Burke Ave. N.  If you are arriving by car, parking is easy at Gasworks Park, but crossing the street in a group is tricky, so we are meeting on the sidewalk just west of the park and across the street.

The ride will follow the Burke Gilman, cross the water at the Fremont Bridge, then take the Ship Canal Trail to the Salmon Bay area.  We'll stop at  Caffe Appassionato for coffee to go and take it over to Fisherman's Terminal to enjoy the view. Fortified, we'll head to the Locks and walk our bikes over the gates to Ballard, then ride to Maritime Pacific Brewing Company for a  lunch stop. Back to the start via streets and Burke Gilman.

Bring money for the refreshment stops, and come early to get the safety briefing.

In the spirit of 30 Days of Biking, the ride will happen rain or shine, but will be much shorter if the weather is bad.
