Ride Description: 

Ride with Senior Ladies On Wheels (SLOW) to admire P-Patches and community gardens in Central and South Seattle. ALL RIDERS WELCOME, old, young, female, male, and everything in between. There are several gentle climbs along this route, but don't worry - if you want to get off and walk, we'll walk with you!

Starting at the Northwest African American Museum on the I-90 lid, we will follow the I-90 trail, neighborhood Greenways and other low-traffic streets. Along the way we'll choose a spot to stop for treats or lunch. On these rides the slowest rider sets the pace - don't worry, we won't hurry! Rain won't cancel - but may lead to a shorter ride. 

This SLOW ride was initially planned to take place in June, but was cancelled due to ride leader bike injury. While SLOW ride founder and regular leader Merlin Rainwater is recovering, current Cascade Americorps and ride leader Morgan Michel will lead the SLOW rides in July and August. Please bear with her as she is no Merlin! But she will always try to bring some free snacks along :).
