Join us for a ride from Red Brick Road Park on a 21.8 mile route at leisurely pace at 10-12 MPH!
Enjoy a ride with a variety of terrain combining two trails and Kirkland roads with some hills. There is free parking and a sanican available at the start. Leave the Sammamish River trail at the Red Brick Road Park and head uphill on Kirkland roads leading to the downtown Kirkland waterfront. We will climb and descend hills at our own pace, and our goal will be to regroup occasionally. We will cycle 5 miles on the flat compact dirt/gravel Cross Kirkland Corridor trail suitable for all tires. The group will break at Starbucks at Houghton Center for coffee and a social at mile 9.7. Transition to the flat, paved and scenic Sammamish River trail and head north toward Bothell. There are restrooms and water available at Wilmot Gateway Park in Woodinville. From there, it's back to the Red Brick Road Park and the start of the ride.
Riders are responsible for their own equipment repairs. Please bring your own tools and spare tube to fix a flat. Helmets are required!
Meet at 9:40 AM at the Red Brick Road Park parking lot to ready your bicycle, listen to a safety briefing, meet other riders and get route information.
