This "in city" route is loaded with hills so join us if you like to climb. Good water views, brief regroups on hilltops, and 18-21 mph effort level on the flats. We will do hills in Discovery Park, Magnolia, and the Blue Ridge neighborhood in Ballard, plunge down and grind/spin up Carkeek Park Road and back to Discovery Park. Short breaks for water/toilet, no formal food stop (bring bars/nutrition).
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. IMPORTANT: BE AT START POINT BY 8:15 to ride with us.
