Lake Union History Ride Redux
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
This is a history ride to visit and learn facts about various historic and interesting sites around Lake Union. It is a redux because the ride was originally postponed in March 2020 due to the pandemic.
We will meet at the east end of the parking lot at Gas Works Park (2101 N Northlake Way, Seattle, WA 98103). Bicycle access is just off the Burke-Gilman Trail across the street. Parking can be found in the adjacent parking lot. Transit access includes biking from the Link light rail station at UW (2 miles away) or biking from King County Metro Bus routes 32 and 62 each with stops a few blocks away.
There are a total of 12 stops on this ride during which the ride leader will give some details about the history/geography/etc. for a couple of minutes. We will take a restroom & snack break at the Center for Wooden Boats about halfway through the ride (mile 7.4).
Please note: due to all the starts/stops, this ride is expected to last around 3-4 hours.
