Ride Description: 

***Holiday lights are out***

We will ride north on the Burke-Gilman Trail to Log Boom Park near Bothell. Then take a break at the Park for about 15 minutes, use the restrooms if needed and return to Matthews Beach. Bring a snack if needed. The terrain is flat. The pace is steady at 12 to 14 mph. Helmets and a functioning bicycle are required. No cue sheets provided. Free parking at Matthews Beach parking lot. Arrive early to beat the sea gulls for a good parking spot.

Route:  Come, have fun, decorate your bike and enjoy this social bike ride along the Burke Gilman Trail to look at the colorful lights. We will see decorated homes along the Lake Washington waterfront, not very accessible by vehicles.  

Lights: This is an after dark ride; you must come equipped with a headlight (bright enough to light up the road in front of you) and a tail light. Remember to charge your lights before the ride!

Fenders: If the riding surfaces are wet, please come equipped with fenders long enough to keep the person riding behind you dry.

Ride start: Please arrive 15 minutes before the start of the ride to sign the liability waiver and hear the safety briefing. Water and restrooms are available.  No cue sheets will be provided and be prepared if you have a mechanical problem e.g. flat tire.

Cue sheets - None 

Register - Please sign an e-waiver by clicking on the “Register Now” button at the top of this page (right below the ride title) and enter your information. If you cannot make the ride, you do not need to unregister.
