Ride 520 Bike Lane from Bellevue on Opening Day! (one way only)
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
The time is finally upon us! The 520 bridge is slated to open on December 20, so let's ride it! There will be event tents with swag and such on both sides of the bridge. On the Bellevue side will be Choose Your Way Bellevue and Cascade Bicycle Club on the Montlake side.
**THIS IS A ONE WAY COMMUTE RIDE! THERE WILL BE NO OFFICIAL RETURN TO THE START!**
We'll meet up at the big metal....french fry things on 106th and 6th, right next to the Homegrown sandwich shop. We'll head out from there and try to meetup with the group that started on the Montlake side, then cross back to Montlake together. Ride will officially end at the East Montlake Park, but feel free to join me as far as Lake Forest Park.
Given that this will be a dark, possibly wet ride, lights will be required as well as helmets. Fenders would be nice, otherwise you'll have to ride in the back.
As always, funky socks and crazy lights (within legal and safety constraints) are encouraged, but by no means necessary.
In case of bad weather or delay in the bridge opening causing cancellation, the ride leader will not be at the start and it will be announced here at least 2 hours prior to the ride start. Please arrive 20 minutes early to ready your bike and hear the safety briefing.
