Kirkland Social - Bothell Kirkland Loop
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Join us for a social ride from Heritage Park in downtown Kirkland. This is a 27.5 mile, Steady Pace (12-14mph) route through Kenmore, Bothell and Kirkland with a rest stop at the Kenmore Boat Launch, mile 9.3 and a food/snack stop at Beardslee Plaza, mile 16.3. We return via UW Bothell campus, Sammamish River Trail, Waynita Way NE, 100th Ave NE, Forbes Creek Dr, and the CKC (Eastrail). There are hills, but we climb them with a commensurate level of effort of a steady pace and regroup at the top. Restrooms are not available at the start, but we will stop for restrooms/water at Juanita Beach Park, mile 2.5. Parking is limited at Heritage Park but there is ample room on Waverly Way adjacent to the park.
Let's meet at Heritage Park and please be ready to ride at 11:00am. 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. If you wish to join along the route, please contact us to arrange a meeting point where we can stop and give you the safety briefing.
Bring a spare tube and tools to fix a flat, just in case.
Note: If weather conditions meet the weather cancelation 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!
