Ride Description: 

Please join us for a MORE Hills ride! Midweek Outdoor Riding in Evening is a weekly ride of about 20 miles with a few hills. It is a perfect way to add a little training for otherwise weekend riders without spending too much time. And it’s a great way to enjoy the long day of Pacific Northwest! Don’t go to an indoor spinning class! Instead, ride with us!

The start locations will be in North Seattle (Lower Woodland Park, Matthews Beach, View Ridge, etc.). We will ride on urban Seattle/Shoreline streets as well as some trails. Because of unavoidable traffic lights, we will keep a steady pace, but you will make it up with a few hills to climb. We will regroup at top of every hill for a reasonable time, but if you are too fast/slow for the majority, it will become self-paced. It’s nice to bring your own cue sheet. Please pack water, snack, and tools/tubes to fix a flat as always. Even though the majority of ride will be in daylight, please have your lights (both front and back) just in case.

This week's MORE Hills ride starts at Magnuson Park and we will ride the BG past U village, then Ravenna Blvd to Green Lake. We will head north on Fremont Ave to the Interurban Trail.  At 155th we cross Aurora Ave then north on Ashworth to 195th and down Perkins Way to Lake Forest park, then take the Burke Gilman back to the start.
