Blue Angels Ride (Moderate)
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
They're back!!! The Blues are back. We'll ride from the Newport Hills P&R over the East Channel bridge and do a lap of Mercer Island before arriving at a prime viewing area roof deck at mile 14. We'll relax, have lunch on the deck and watch a great show. After the show, we'll return to the starting point. Coffee and cold water will be provided but bring your lunch. Fair warning: This ride is more about the Blues than the cycling. Note: your non-riding significant other is welcome to join us to watch the show. Parking however would be problematic.
Please arrive 15 minutes early to hear ride and safety briefings, as we plan to depart on schedule. No restrooms or water at start, but we will stop at Newcastle Beach Park at mile 1.
Pace is moderate -14-16 MPH on flat; slower uphill and faster down, and we will regroup occasionally.
