Gasworks Park to Alki
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
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.
Join us for a ride from Gasworks Park on an approximately 30 mile route at a steady pace (12 - 14 mph)!
This will be a fun, recreational ride along the water - the ship canal and the Seattle waterfront - to Alki where we will take a short break before returning along the same route.
Let's meet at the Gasworks Park at 9:45 am for our pre-ride safety briefing, with a departure at 10:00 am.
We will climb and descend hills at our own pace, and our goal will be to stay together and if necessary regroup when required. We'll also limit our speed on any multi-use paths to the legal maximum (usually 15 MPH) and tend to slow down for pedestrians and other individuals.
Restrooms are available at the start. We will stop along the way for restrooms/water about halfway to Alki near the Grain Terminal (waterfront park) and at Alki where there will be a short break to have coffee or a snack.
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. Weather is expected to be good however.
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!
