Ride Description: 

Please join us for a LESS Hills ride! This is a less hilly alternative to Wednesday night's 'Midweek Outdoor Riding in Evening' series, with a target of 20-25 miles.  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 daylight of Pacific Northwest spring and summer.

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. We will keep the published pace on flats, but you can go uphill at your own pace. We will keep the group together on these rides.  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 we start from Lower Woodland Park, take the 520 bridge to Medina and then return on the bridge before climbing to Ravenna to get back to the start.

We will roll at 6 pm so please arrive 20 minutes early to get ready, sign a waiver, and listen to the safety briefing. Registering here will make the process easier and we can better prepare with appropriate number of Ride Leaders. In addition to showers, any other hazardous conditions will cancel a ride. ​If a ride is canceled due to hazardous conditions, the notice will be posted here in the comments section below, and on the Meetup announcement page by 4:00 p.m. on the day of the ride. If that notice is posted, the ride leaders will not be at the start.
