Ride Description: 

Join us for a ride from Gas Works Park on a 37 mile route at the high end of Moderate 15-17!

This ride is mostly road but some dirt trails are thrown in for fun. Off road sections (in green) include Ravenna, Husky Stadium, Magnuson Park, Mathews Beach, Carkeek park, and Golden Gardens. These sections are easy hard packed gravel or dirt. I like this route when the weather is rainy and windy for we have less pedestrians on the trail segments. Please view the link to the route before the ride and download it on a device if possible.

Let's meet at the Gas Works Park at 9:15 for our pre-ride safety briefing, with a departure at 9:30.

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

Restrooms are available at the start. We will stop along the way for restrooms/water at Carkeek Park. 

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

Bring a spare tube and tools to fix a flat, just in case. Fenders are encouraged if the roads are wet.

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!
