Early Riser Ride - W Seattle
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Come join me for a quick loop around West Seattle before the rain hits. We'll start with some mellow hills with a flat 7-mile finish. Restrooms at the start and options at 7.5 miles and 15 miles into the ride. We'll keep moving (no planned stops) to stay warm, with regroups at hill tops and at turns. Be ready to roll and signed in by 8:15 am to hear the mandatory safety briefing.
