Great views of the city and neighborhoods and makes one appreciate what a beautiful city we have. First part of ride is very hilly, going over Beacon Hill, then down to Airport Way and over to West Seattle, Lincoln Park, Alki, north on Alaska Way, Ship Canal Trail and back via the U of W and the Arboretum. We will regroup at the top of hills. Ride leader likes to move it on the flats to 16+ mph but slow on the hills. Stay together ride but is not easy and recommended that riders be in fairly good shape. We can stop for food at a couple of places at half way point. Rain cancels. Carry extra inner tubes. Be prepared to depart at 9:30 sharp.
