Emerald City Ride presented by Kaiser Permanente

Stay tuned for 2019 date and information! the information below refers to the 2018 event.

Ride car-free across the Alaskan Way Viaduct (before it's demolished), the Aurora Bridge, and the I-5 Express Lanes

Experience Seattle like never before! The new 2018 route includes (for the first time ever) the Alaskan Way Viaduct and Aurora Bridge – a truly historic experience. This year's Emerald City Ride is designed for riders of all ages and abilities with two rout options: a 12-mile full loop including a rest stop or a 3-mile out-and-back trip on the Viaduct.

Registered riders will receive a commemorative souvenir as a giveaway and we will have t-shirts available for purchase. Both routes are fully supported and the longer route will feature a rest stop with tasty treats. Ride details.
