PIE RIDE: We will ride north on the Burke-Gilman Trail to the North Shore Senior Center (NSSC) in Bothell, just beyond Blyth Park. We then take a brownie or cookie break at NSSC. Cookies & brownies plus ice cream, sodas and coffee are usually available for riders to purchase at a reasonable price.  Please note: purchases may be with cash, charge or debit cards (plastic purchases are a minimum of $1.00). We will be there for about 30 to 60 minutes, use the restrooms if needed and then return to Matthews Beach.

There are currently no COVID-19 protocols listed on their website. Vaccinations are strongly encouraged. Having a mask at hand is a good idea to be sure you can gain entrance to the facility.  For latest updates, see the North Shore Senior Center link below, and go to the "News" section.
