Routes

Explore Seattle's backstreets at a comfortable pace with a sociable crowd, and stop for donuts and other baked delights along the way (expect chocolate). We’ll venture places seldom seen via routes seldom taken, and though we won't go looking for a challenge (we won’t ride the Counterbalance), we'll gradually top a hill or two and savor the view along the way. Bring money for decadence during the ride and for lunch afterward.

This Ride

This Saturday ride will take us through the UW Campus and the Ravenna and Wedgwood neighborhoods with the all important Bakery stop. The return will include Sand Point, Windermere, Laurelhurst and the Union Bay Natural Area. There is a route map link below for those who want, or just show up and follow the leader(s). We'll climb and descend some hills and ride about 16.7 miles, with about 920 ft. of elevation gain.

For Every Ride...

Let's meet at Gas Works Park and please be ready to ride at 9:45. We will start with a required safety briefing, and roll out when that's done. If you miss the briefing you will not be able to ride with the group. Carry water, a spare tube and tools to fix a flat, just in case. Always bring your sense of humor and patience; this is a Great Scott ride:-)

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!
