Ride Description: 

Please join us for a LESS Hills ride,  like a MORE ride but with fewer and less steep hills for about 20-25 miles. It is a perfect way to add a little training for otherwise weekend riders without spending too much time. And it’s a great way to enjoy the long daylight of Pacific Northwest in the spring and summer.

We start from Lower Woodland Park and will ride on urban Seattle/Shoreline streets as well as some trails. We will keep the published pace on flats, but you can go uphill at your own pace. We will keep the group together on these rides. It’s nice to bring your own cue sheet. Please pack water, snack, and tools/tubes to fix a flat as always. Even though the majority of ride will be in daylight, please have your lights (both front and back) just in case. 

This week we go across the new 520 Bridge bike trail to Medina, do a loop, and then return via the bridge and then, up to Ravenna before getting back to Lower Woodland Park.

We will roll at 6 pm so please come early enough to get ready, sign a waiver, and listen to the safety briefing. Registering here will make the process easier and we can better prepare with appropriate number of Ride Leaders. In addition to showers, any other hazardous conditions will cancel a ride. ​If a ride is cancelled due to hazardous conditions, the notice will be posted here in the comments section below by 4:00 p.m. on the day of the ride. If that notice is posted, the ride leaders will not be at the start.


Hi Andy et al--

I'll miss Thursday's ride as I taper for STP. Suzanne, Julie, and I rode it tonight--what a terrific route! I'll also miss next wek as I'll be out of town. See you all on the 26th!
