Ride Description: 

“West Seattle to Mercer Island for Lunch” takes us on the bike path over the Duwamish Waterway, through Sodo’s industrial-commercial district, and then onto the bike path across Lake Washington to Mercer Island.  After a rest stop on the Mercer Island “lid,” we will circle the island in the clockwise direction then pause for lunch at the New Seasons Market.  Following lunch, we will return to the start. 

The ride begins at Jack Block Park.  Parking and restrooms are available at the park.  The park can also be reached by public transportation – take the King County Water Taxi to West Seattle, or take the Rapid Ride “C” bus and use the first stop, Branford Street, in West Seattle, and ride north approximately one mile to the start.  We will leave the park at 10:00 a.m.  Plan to arrive 20 minutes early so we can have time to do introductions and the safety briefing and start on time. 

This is a social ride, and we will stay together.  The pace is “steady,” which means riders should be comfortable with riding 12-14 mph on a flat road without headwind.  

Steady rain cancels.  If a cancellation is necessary, ride leader will post a notice in the comments section two hours prior to the start.  In the event of cancellation, ride leader will not be at the start.
