The Getting Ready to Ride Series

Are you new to bicycling, or just been off your bike for a while? Perhaps you've been meaning to ride more this year, but not yet gotten around to it? If so, Getting Ready to Ride might be just for you. It is an eight-week series starting with a flat and easy ride, and adding a little more challenge each week. We will regroup frequently and definitely at the top of any climbs.

We're offering leisurely (10-12mph) and steady (12-14mph) pace versions. This posting is for steady (12-14mph)Click here for leisurely (10-12mph).

This Week's Ride

Join us for a ride from Gas Works Park on a 20 mile route at steady pace (12-14mph)! This week we cross the 520 floating bridge and ride up Lake Washington Blvd to our midpoint at the Kirkland Marina.  Let's meet at the east end of Gas Works parking lot at 9:45am for our pre-ride safety briefing, with a departure at 10:00am.  Restrooms are available at the start and at our mid-point stop (10 miles).

COVID Safety

Please note: During COVID-19 restrictions, all Free Group Rides are limited in the number of allowed participants. Registration for the ride (using the red “Register Now” button above) is REQUIRED to participate. If you decide not to ride, please click the red Cancel My Registration button above so that an additional spot will be made available to another.

Face coverings (for mouth and nose) are required when the group makes extended stops. Face coverings are recommended for the duration of the ride. Please bring personal hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes and tissues for use at rest stops.

We will observe current social distancing guidelines when off the bike, and strive to maintain at least 10-12ft separation between riders when on the bike.

Final Words

Bring a spare tube and tools to fix a flat, just in case. Please have full fenders if the roads are wet, or you may be asked to ride at the rear of the group.

Note: If weather conditions meet the weather cancellation criterion listed above or if there are unforeseen hazardous riding conditions or other unexpected events, 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!
