Chilly Hilly ferry schedule
Your Seattle registration fee includes a ferry ticket for you and your bike on the ferry times listed below:
7:55, 8:45, 9:35 and 10:35 a.m.
Your bib is your ferry ticket. If you take an earlier or later ferry, you must pay your own fare. Bicycle capacity per vessel is limited so arrive early. The 7:55 ferry is the most crowded, 8:45 less so, and the 9:35 & 10:35 ferries are the least crowded.
Even though there is no rider limit, due to heavy day-of-ride registrations, we can't guarantee that day-of-event registrants will make their intended ferry. If you must make a particular ferry, we suggest you pre-register for this event before Feb. 11 to have your packet mailed to you.
Use the special Chilly Hilly entrance north of the downtown Seattle ferry terminal. For safety, walk your bike onto the ferry and remember to remove or cover your cleats if you go up to the passenger decks (it's the law).
