A fun route with good views. Not especially fast but lots of climbing, hence the strenuous classification. We will ride hills in Discovery Park, Magnolia, and the Blue Ridge neighorhood in Ballard, plunge down and grind/spin up Carkeek Park Road and back to Discovery Park. Short breaks at hiltops if necesary, no food stop; back around 1 pm.
DIRECTIONS TO START: Enter Discovery Park on West Government Way and make immediate right onto Texas Way; go straight at the stop sign to get to the NORTH PARKING LOT. NOTE: Be there by 8:45 am so we can roll at 9:00
