Magnolia-Ballard Roller Coaster
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
We'll ride many hills in Discovery Park and Magnolia, and in the Blue Ridge neighborhood and Carkeek Park in Ballard. Good in-city climbing route to work the legs with nice scenery. Exact route TBD depending on road conditions, but will be all or part of what is posted on the Ride with GPS link (http://ridewithgps.com/routes/1757198). Please check out the elevtion profile if you are unfamiliar with the terrain (I'm not sure of the exact elevation - Ride With GPS says 4400', Garmin 5200'!). Brief regroups at hilltops, no food stop - bring nutrition. Strenuous for elevation gain rather than pace.
Please arrive by 8:20 AM so we can roll at 8:30 AM. Fenders with buddy flap required if roads are wet. Enter Discovery Park on W. Government Way and take 1st right after entering onto Texas to get to the NORTH parking lot. Rest rooms availalbe at the start.
