Blazing Saddles! Tour Seattle’s Unique Fire Stations by Bike

This week’s  Ride of the Week is Bill Blake's “Blazing Saddles,” so named because riders will visit seven of Seattle's architecturally distinct fire stations, including both new and remodeled stations. The ride will take place this Sunday, Feb 5 at 10 a.m., and is the third installment of Bill’s Blazing Saddles series. Riders will start at Magnuson Park's big parking lot and head towards Seward Park, turning off to Mt Baker Station, then on to the International District, Downtown Seattle, Belltown, Fremont, Ballard, Greenwood, Green Lake, U District, Laurelhurst and back to Magnuson. There will be many refueling opportunities along the route and Bill promises to have you back in time for Super Bowl.
