Myrtle Edwards Park

3130 Alaskan Way W, Seattle, WA, 98119


We hope that by offering a central Seattle location, many people will ride their bikes to the start, but we understand that many will drive or have a household member meet them at the finish location. Parking is free on Sundays, and we encourage riders to find street parking near the Downtown (south), Queen Anne or Magnolia (north) entrances to the park. 


Seattle DIY Bike-n-Brews El Norte occurs during the month of July. Riders must participate during the breweries' operating hours.

After crossing the Fremont Bridge, you’ll hit the Burke-Gilman Trail, then follow the Burke-Gilman all the way to 192 Brewing in Kenmore. After your refreshing pit stop, you'll head back the same route back, stop by Peddler Brewing Company for your second beer before picking up your empty glass growler and Bike-n-Brews souvenir.
