Ride to the local chocolate factory

Didn’t get enough chocolate this week? Or feel the need to work off the chocolate you have popped? We have a ride for you. This week’s ride of the week starts in Wedgewood and goes to the Theo Chocolate Factory in Fremont. The post-Valentine ride will use community streets and the Burke-Gilman trail, and has a modest grade rise on the return route but the rest of the ride will be flat or downhill. This is a “Spokespeople N.E.” ride, meaning it’s an easy-paced ride about 2 hours in duration, includes a midway stop, occurs the 3rd Saturday of every month, and all rides include experienced bike commuters to offer encouragement and model good road riding techniques.

When: Saturday, Feb 18 at 12:45 to hear about safe riding, proper helmet fit, and bike function check- the ride leaves at 1 pm

Start point: Between the Wedgewood Presbyterian Church and the Hunter Tree Farm property near 35th Ave NE and NE 80th Street, Seattle

Terrain:  Rolling (the route and cue sheet can be seen at http://ridewithgps.com/routes/929973)

Distance: 13.5 miles

Pace: Easy (under 10 mph)

This is a “stay together” ride.

Steady rain will cancel the ride
