Ride Description: 

Join us for a 23.0 mile, 1,530' elevation gain as we bike through the neighborhoods of Capitol Hill, Mt. Baker, Beacon Hill, Columbia City, Leschi, Madrona and Montlake.  Along the way, we will visit Genesee Park, the Arboretum, and stop at a pretty viewpoint in Leschi.  We will have a long, moderate grade climb up Cheasty Blvd, and will also have several short steep climbs including the 3rd, 7th, and 8th steepest streets in Seattle, and will also have one stair climb.  There is one section on an easy dirt trail.  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.
