Magnolia-Ballard Roller Coaster (58-60 mi, 5200')
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
We'll ride many hills in Discovery Park and Magnolia, and the Blue Ridge neighborhood and Carkeek Park in Ballard. Nice in city climbing with some good water views. 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 elevtion profile if you are unfamiliar with the area. Brief regroups at hilltops, no food stop - bring nutrition. Strenuous for elevation gain rather than pace.
Please arrive by 8:50 AM so we can roll at 9AM. 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. Showers cancel.
