Join us for a social ride from Heritage Park in downtown Kirkland.  This is a 27.7-mile, Steady Pace (12-14mph) hillly route through Kirkland, Kenmore, and Bothell.   We'll climb Finn and Bothell Hills with a rest stop @ Kenmore Boat Launch, mile 9.4 and a coffee/snack stop @ Beardslee Plaza, mile 16.1.  We return to the start via 1/2 Norway Hill, Forbes Creek, Cross Kirkland Corridor, and Kirkland Urban.  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 2.6.  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 doneIf 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.
