CATS Magnuson #2 (Brisk): Beacon Hill & Lakeridge Park
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Second in an annual series of training rides designed to help ready riders for large events (STP, RSVP, HPC, etc.). Rides will increase in distance and elevation gain each week.
We will meet in the large parking lot (W6) adjacent to the playing fields in Magnuson Park. This week we head south through Wedgewood, Ravenna, the U-District, Montlake, the Central District, Mt. Baker, Beacon Hill, and Rainier Beach before turning north near Lakeridge Park. We'll head north on Rainier Ave. with a rest stop at the Safeway. We will then continue north towards Seward Park, up Lake Washington Blvd. through Leschi with a loop through Madison Park, then heading back to Montlake via the Arboretum. We will continue north through Laurelhurst before returning to Magnuson Park.
Riders must be self-sufficient and be able to ride in groups. We will maintain a strict brisk pace (16-18 mph on the flats). Bring spare tubes, tools, etc. and if wet, fenders would be appreciated. We plan to leave promptly at 9:30 AM, so please be ready for the intro and safety message by 9:15.
