Getting Ready to Ride Seattle #2: Lk Union-Fishermen's Terminal-Elliott Bay (Steady)
The Getting Ready to Ride Series
Are you new to bicycling or just been off of your bike for a while? Perhaps you have resolved to ride more this year or have signed up for a big ride like STP? If so, Getting Ready to Ride might be just for you! It is an 8-week series starting with a flat, easy ride and adding a little more challenge each week. We will regroup frequently and definitely at the top of any climbs.
This Week's Ride
Join us for a ride from Gas Works Park on a 20 mile route at steady pace (12-14 mph). This figure-8 loop visits the Montlake Bridge, Lake Union, Fishermen's Terminal, Interbay rail yard, Elliott Bay Trail (views of the Sound!), and Fremont Bridge. Let's meet at the WEST end of Gas Works parking lot at 10:15am. We will start with a required pre-ride safety briefing, and ride when that is done. If you miss the briefing you will not be able to join this ride.
Portable toilets are available at the start and restrooms at our mid-point stop at Fishermen's Terminal (11 miles).
Bring a spare tube and tools to fix a flat, just in case. Please have full fenders if the roads are wet, or you may be asked to ride at the rear of the group.
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!
