Travel in style to the Ballard Locks at the start of the peak salmon spawning season. We'll ride on the new Ship Canal Trail and explore low stress routes between Ballard and Wallingford. Spokespeople rides http://twitter.com/Spokespeople, on the first Saturday of every month for a fun, low-carbon, family-friendly community ride. All Spokespeople rides meet at the south end of Wallingford Playfield at N 42nd St & Densmore Ave N and ride on the road to an adjacent urban center. New riders welcome! Please come by 1:45 if you are new to riding in groups or if you need help with adjusting your helmet or bike. All ages and skill levels welcome! All rides are on the road with traffic and include expert commuters who accompany us to offer encouragement and model good road riding techniques for new, returning and reluctant cyclists. Please join us! This is a Bike Smart Seattle ride. All are welcome!
