Free Group Ride
Opt Outside: Woodland Park to Mill Creek
Avoid the crowded shopping: opt outside and join us for a 41-mile, Brisk paced (16-18mph) ride. Plus, burn off some of that turkey!
Let's meet at the Woodland Park lower parking lot (near the soccer fields). Be there, ready to go at the time listed above. We will start with a required safety briefing, and roll out when that's done.
Our route takes us north through Kenmore to Mill Creek where we will stop for coffee and a snack at Bequest Coffee, then returning via Montlake Terrace and Shoreline.
We will climb and descend hills at our own pace, regrouping if needed at the top of climbs. Overall, our goal will be to staying together. We'll also limit our speed on any multi-use paths to the legal maximum (usually 15 MPH)
Restrooms available at the start, and available at miles 11 and 30 if needed. Coffee at the ride's midpoint.
Bring a spare tube and tools to fix a flat, just in case. Other things to bring: phone; ID; cash and/or credit card; ORCA card; water and a small snack. 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 cancellation criterion listed above or if there are unforeseen hazardous riding conditions or other unexpected events, the Ride Leader will cancel the ride and all registered riders will be sent a notification email. If the ride is cancelled at least two hours before the start, Ride Leader(s) will not be at the start location. Please check before leaving for the ride.
We hope you can join us!
