Ride Description: 
Join us for a social ride at 10 - 12 MPH on the flats on bike friendly streets and some of Seattle's commuter trails from Gas Works Park, through Fremont, across the Locks with tulip views in the gardens there, with a loop through Discovery Park and along the rail transportation yards to the Olympic Sculpture Park and back. It's a 17 mile loop with lots to see, hear, smell, and pedal! Sorry, no Fremont Troll stop this time!

There are a couple hills, but we ride them at our own pace and always regroup at the top. Restrooms are available at start, at the Locks, and at our turnaround point. Please arrive in time to be ready to leave at 10:00 a.m.  Bring a snack for the turnaround point at the Olympic Sculpture Garden.
