Woodinville Wine Ride
Sunday, Sept. 10, 2023.
9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Black Raven Brewery, Woodinville (map)
20 miles, minimal climbing
Cruise through the heart of Woodinville Wine Country on the 7th annual Woodinville Wine Ride! The route travels through several winery districts on the northern side of Lake Washington, with riders utilizing the beautiful Sammamish River Trail and scenic low-traffic roads through Woodinville and its surrounding communities. Mini-stops along the route will feature a wine tasting and food sampling. Your return to the finish line rewards you with a party with a wine and beer garden, food trucks, and more! The ride this year puts a little "Odin" into "Woodinville" by starting and ending at Black Raven Brewery's Woodinville location, but there will still be plenty of vino from start to finish, only with the addition of beer as an option for those so inclined.
This event is a fundraiser for Cascade Bicycle Club's programming in advocacy, education, and community rides, such as the Major Taylor Project, Let's Go, Your Streets Your Say, and Pedaling Relief Project.
