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  inside Gas Works Park, atop Kite Hill (unless it's raining badly, then we'll find some good trees in the parking lot to huddle under). If you are arriving by car, parking is easy at Gas Works Park.

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 Peddler Brewing Company  for a  lunch stop. Cycle Dogs bike-based vegan hot dogs is the food truck of the day, sandwiches are available from the brewery, and it's OK to bring your own food. 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.
