Ride Description: 

Join us for a 25.1 mile, 1,550' elevation gain as we bike through the neighborhoods of Wallingford, Phinney Ridge, Greenwood, Bitter Lake, Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, Cedar Park, Wedgwood, Hawthorne Hills and Laurelhurst.  Along the way, we will visit Woodland Park, the Interurban Trail and have a 1.5 mile descent on Perkins Way.  There will be a few short sections of dirt trail, some steep streets to climb, and if time allows, a short bonus hill for the climbing enthusiasts.  Those not wanting to do the bonus hill will get a short rest break while this climb is being done.  We will re-group on the top of all significant climbs.   

Afterwards, we'll head to the Nickerson Street Saloon for food, drinks and socializing for those interested.  

Please make sure to arrive at least 15-20 minutes before the start time to get your bike set up, sign the waiver, and to listen to the safety talk.

The ride leaders will not be at the ride start should conditions be as noted in “Showers Cancels” above.  The ride leader will announce the cancellation in the comments section below at least 2 hours prior to the ride start and will monitor my phone and/or email listed in the contact information. If you have questions about the weather or air quality, please call (or email) before you leave for the ride.  

Comments

It looks like we will need to cancel the ride for tonight.  The forecast shows the highest probability of rain right at the start time for the ride.  Since we do have some steep ascents and descents, and also some dirt trail, will cancel now so that everyone has enough advance warning not to attend and can make other plans.
