Free Group Ride
Find It/Fix It
Find It/Fix It : We will ride north on the Burke-Gilman Trail to the Welcome to Seattle sign. From there we will proceed south on the trail until 40th Ave NE near the Metropolitan Market before returning to Matthews Beach. During the trip south the group will decide if an issue is bad enough on the trail to submit a group of Find It/Fix It reports to Seattle Parks and Recreation. There will be a number of stops and each of them will take about 5 minutes or more.
Special Instructions Please have the Find It/Fix it app installed on your phone if you want to submit an issue.
