Ride Description: 

Join us for a steady, social, occasionally hilly ride from Kirkland which will head south this week to circumnavigate (mostly) Mercer Island!   The route starts/ends at Heritage Park in downtown Kirkland with optional restroom stops at Kirkland Marina (0.4 miles) and at Bellevue Downtown Park (6.7 miles).    This is a mid-week ride on bike friendly roads and trails - this week our 30 minute coffee/food stop on the route will be at The New Seasons on Mercer Island (20.0 miles).  There are hills, but we climb them at our own pace and always regroup at the top.  Don and Jane will be gone again this week so we will do our best with your help to try to keep the series of rides going! 

Please arrive in time to be ready to ride at the start time, 11:00 a.m.

We are still cycling in southern France along the Seine River - very warm here but great le paysage (scenery). Thanks Al for keeping the series going - we hope to be back leading by mid July.

Right now (Wednesday evening) the weather gurus are showing a pretty good weather window from 11am to about 2:30pm which is our typical ride timing.  We’ll make the final call in the morning but don’t be discouraged by any overnight rains!  Keeping my fingers crossed for another great ride tomorrow!

Don & Jane - I will check today with attendees on the likelihood of a 4 July ride but there are a bunch of civic activities occurring that day which make it somewhat unlikely.  I will be either traveling or getting ready to travel for the rest of the July ride dates so we are hoping you can be back leading in time for the July 11 ride!    Enjoy le paysage!!
