Ride Description: 

Shake off the Monday blues with a bit of hill climbing! Join us for a 31 mile, vigorous paced (19mph) hilly route through north Seattle and Shoreline. Let's meet at the Woodland Park lower parking lot (near the soccer fields) at 0915 for a pre-ride brief, then rolling promptly at 0930. Our route will take us through Phinney Ridge to Ballard then down to Golden Gardens. From there, we'll climb up and down to Carkeek Park, then some more hills as we roll north. Return from Shoreline via Briarcrest and Lake City, stopping at Cafe Javasti in Maplewood (around mile 27 for a snack). Restrooms at the start and at mile 12. Our goal will be to stick together as much as possible, regrouping at the top of bigger climbs. We'll also limit speed to 15mph while on multi-use paths. If it's wet, fenders are appreciated. Hope you can join us.
