Weather Cancellation: 

Join us for a beautiful spring ride from Bainbridge Island Senior Center to the Seattle Arboretum.  We will explore a loop in the arboretum and have a picnic. Bring lunch and money for the ferry. Pace is leisurely at 10-12 miles per hour. If the group likes,  we will stop at Starbucks in Leschi on the way back. 

Let's meet at the Bainbridge Island Senior Center at 9:50 for our pre-ride safety briefing. We will ride down to the ferry to catch the 10:25 sailing  

We will climb and descend hills at our own pace, and our goal will be to stay together.  We will wait for everyone at the top of a hill.

Restrooms available at the start. We will stop along the way for restrooms/water at the Arboretum, our half way 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!

Please let the ride leader know if you are bringing an ebike.
