West Seattle STP (SW Seattle St to SW Portland St) - 6th Annual
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Have you ever wanted to do the Seattle to Portland bike ride? Or even wanted to do the 1-day STP? And forgot to sign up or train for it? Here is your big fat chance! Do it in 2 hours, and end up at a huge finish line party! Same weekend as Cascade's big STP, so you can brag at the water cooler and post pix, too.
West Seattle Bike Connections will be riding again from SW Seattle Street in the Admiral neighborhood to SW Portland St in Fauntlee Hills, and back north to Summerfest at the West Seattle Junction, for a fabulous finish line party. After an hour or two there, participants can ride home independently, or ride with a leader back to Hamilton Viewpoint.
Check brakes and tires. Arrive by 9:15 for route/safety intro. Helmets required. No ear buds. Pre-register or on the spot. Rolling at 9:30.
Family friendly and fun! Easy pace. We will stay together and work together to cross any busy intersections.
For children and youth riding their own bikes: parent or guardian please read and conform to Cascade's policy (see link below). Call ride leader for a 2-way communication at least a day in advance. All who are capable of riding the distance on streets with some hills are most welcome!
Route with cue sheet: see below in links. 7.5 miles south to SW Portland and back north to Summerfest at the Junction. (10.2 for total round trip to the Hamilton Viewpoint start.) Route is mostly on quieter residential streets along the ridge parallel to California Avenue SW. Some hills but less than many West Seattle routes. A block or two we might walk up. About 450 feet of elevation gain over 7.5 miles. 640 feet for the full 10.2 miles.
