FRUMPS: Mocha by the Mercer Slough
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Join me on a mini cycling tour of Seattle, Kirkland, Bellevue and Mercer Island. This tour will pass or go through parks, along waterfronts and take a brief stop at the Bellevue Botanic Garden. This is a social ride with a steady pace (12-14 mph).
Ride starts at Madrona Beach heading north through the Washington Park Arboretum and continues east over the 520 bridge to the Kirkland waterfront. We continue along the waterfront before starting our gradual climb through Juanita Bay Park to the top of Rose Hill. A lovely descent starts as we pass Bridal Trails State Park and continues to within a short distance of the Bellevue Botanical Garden. After a photo of group at garden, we will descend to a relaxed coffee/lunch at Dilettante Mocha cafe. Watch the ducks, enjoy the beautiful scenery and socialize with fellow cyclists at this stop. Our return to Seattle crosses Mercer Island, with a short diversion through Aubrey Davis Park, before continuing across the I-90 Bridge to our starting point.
There is a restroom at the start of the ride and many along the route.
Please be considerate of your fellow cyclists and arrive at 9:45 am. Leader wishes to do safety briefing prior to 10 am start.
