Time to wake up the quads. Lots of climbing (but not especially fast at this time of year), water views, brief regroups on hilltops, and 18 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. PLEASE BE READY TO ROLL BY 9:50 AM to ride with us.
