Getting Ready to Ride #6: Lower Woodland-Lake Forest Park Loop (Steady 12-14mph)
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
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 Lower Woodland Park on a 22-mile route at steady pace (12-14mph)! We will ride up the Fremont Ave Greenway and Interurban Trail to Shoreline, enjoy a thrilling descent down Perkins Lane to Lake Forest Park, and return via the Burke Gilman Trail and Ravenna Park.
Let's meet at the Lower Woodland Park Parking Lot, where N 54th St ends, at 9:45am for our pre-ride safety briefing, with a departure at 10:00am. Restrooms are available at the start and the mid point.
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!
