NOTE: This is a BRISK pace, NOT strenuous. Will wait for all who make the effort to do the hills. Faster riders can do them twice. This "in city" route is loaded with hills so join us if you like to climb. Good water views, regroups on hilltops, and 18 mph effort level on the flats. We will aim to do as much of the following as we can by 2 PM: Hills of Discovery Park, Magnolia perimeter, the Blue Ridge neighborhood in Ballard, plunge down and grind/spin up Carkeek Park Road and easy return to Disco Park. Short breaks for water/toilet, no formal food stop (bring 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 9:15 to ride with us.
