OMG, the Alaska Way Viaduct is coming down! Traffic is entering the period of maximum gridlock. How will we get out of West Seattle to go downtown?

Ride our bikes!

This ride is a chance to try out bike commute routes in a friendly group, on a Saturday morning with more daylight and less traffic than on weekdays.

Meet in front of Starbucks in the West Seattle Junction on California SW at SW Alaska. We will ride typical bike routes into SODO, the Central Waterfront, Seattle Center, looping back through South Lake Union and downtown on the 7th Ave, Pine, 2nd Ave protected bike lanes, into Pioneer Square, and back to the start.  Pace will be 12-14 mph on level roads without wind. Slower up hills or into headwinds, and faster downhill. We will stay together. Experienced and friendly bike commuters from West Seattle Bike Connections will be along who can answer questions about routes, gear, and winter riding.

We may have a second ride starting under the West Seattle bridge where the bridge trail and Duwamish trail meet. Look for a second ride listing if you want to start there.

Please arrive by 9:15 for check-in, introductions and briefing, so we can start rolling at 9:30.  Advance registration is encouraged, but not required.

Any kind of bike in good working condition is OK, including e-bikes. Check your brakes, tires, and chain in advance. Helmet required. Bring what you need to fix a flat. Dress for the weather in layers. No special bike-specific clothing or shoes are necessary. A small backpack or pannier is nice, to allow shedding or adding a layer. There are restrooms near the start at the Junction, and we will stop for restrooms at Seattle Center.

Heavy rain, snow or ice cancels the ride. We will ride if it’s just showers or light steady rain. If weather is iffy, check back here for go/no-go notice 8 am day of ride.


Cascade welcome and information for newcomers


Weather forecast looks good. Cloudy, 40's, light breeze, small chance of showers. We're going!

If you are not interested in riding all the way to Seattle Center and back through downtown, there will be the option to stop in Pioneer Square at a coffee shop or bakery on Occidental Plaza, and rejoin the group when we come back through.

Sorry, Liz, I was already riding to the start of the ride at 8:30, so could not see or reply to your comment this morning.
