Ride Description: 

Not riding in the STP this weekend but looking for a bike ride?  Then join me on Sunday morning for a moderate paced ride (14-16 mph) to Alki.  We will start from Three Friends Fishing Hole in Kent and head north to Alki riding on both trails and roads.  The ride is a little over 40 miles in total distance and geared towards socializing, being outdoors and having fun.  Hopefully it will be a sunny summer day for our ride.  They do say that summer officially begins after the Fourth in the PNW but someone apparently dropped the ball this year!  Let's hope they pick it up and sunshine will be with us on ride day.

Our Ice Cream destination is Blue Moon Burgers on Alki.  They serve all kinds of burgers, fries and yes ice cream, malts and floats.  I have a link to their site with their menu below.  Blue Moon Burgers has great outdoor seating with a view of the water, beach and Olympics.  Either before or after our ice cream break we can stop at the little Statue of Liberty for a group photo.  We can decide on when to stop for our group photo during our pre-ride briefing.

After enjoying our sweet delicious summer treats we will head back south the way we came.

Let's meet at the Three Friends Fishing Hole Park at 9:15 am for our pre-ride safety briefing, with a departure at 9:30 am sharp.

We will climb and descend hills at our own pace, and our goal will be to stay together.  We'll also limit our speed on any multi-use paths to the legal maximum (usually 15 MPH).

Restrooms are available at the start and there are restrooms along the way.  Our ice cream stop is at mile 20.

You are encouraged to pre-register by clicking the red "Register Now" button above. There is no need to un-register if you decide not to ride.

Bring a spare tube and tools to fix a flat, just in case. Please have full fenders if the roads are wet, or you may be asked to ride at the rear of the group.

Note: If weather conditions meet the weather cancellation criterion listed above or if there are unforeseen hazardous riding conditions, the Ride Leader will post a ride-canceled note in the Comments section below at least two hours prior to the start and Ride Leader(s) will not be at the start location.

We hope you can join us!

From West Valley Road you turn west onto S. 196th (which becomes S. 200th), head west and cross the railroad tracks.  A little past the RR tracks you will come to a traffic light, turn left.  This is the entrance to Three Friends Fishing Hole parking lot.
