Ride Description: 

A ride around and thru Seattle.  Sights include Greenlake, The Troll, Lenin, Ballard Locks, Shilshole Bay, Seattle Center, International District,  Lake WA and the purple track at the UW.

This could be a challenging but rewarding ride seeing the iconic sights and seasonal decorations around the Emerald City.  If you are new to the area or just think of Seattle as freeway exits, this ride may clarify the layout of the city.  There are two longer hills before lunch and the rest are shorter.  Note that walking thru the Locks is required ($75 fine), so cleat covers may be helpful.  Patience, caution and single file are especially important downtown.  Lunch at Seattle Center Food Court -- bike locks hightly recommended.  Cameras are welcome for short photo ops.  Not suitable for young children or child carriers.

Meet in front of the CBC office to the right of the entrance--not down the hill.  Ice or snow also cancel.  Maps and cue sheets available at start or by following the link below.

Co-leader or newly approved ride leader opportunity; contact leader if interested.
