Less Hills on a Thursday!
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Please join us for a Less Hills ride! This is a less hilly alternative to Wednesday night's More Hills series, with a target of ~20 miles. It is a perfect way to add a little training for otherwise weekend riders without spending too much time on the bike.
The weekly course will be posted in the comments, below. We have a library of routes which we rotate through which can include neighborhood streets around Green Lake, Northgate, Wedgwood, Madison Park, Leschi, Downtown, Queen Anne, Magnolia, Fremont, Ballard, Greenwood and Shoreline. We start at the picnic table near Lower Woodland Park soccer field #2 (look for the bathroom building, the picnic table is just south by the big tree).
For the most part, we will ride on urban streets and occasionally trails. We will keep the published pace on flats, but you can go uphill at your own pace and regroup at the top. We will keep the group together on these rides.
Please pack cue sheet, 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 of any hold-ups.
We will roll at 6 pm, so please arrive ready to ride at 5:45 pm to listen to the safety briefing and any other instructions. Registering online will make the process easier and we can better prepare with appropriate number of Ride Leaders.
Weather notice: In case of inclement weather, the ride leader will post a cancellation notice in the comments section below not less than two hours prior on the day of the ride, and Ride Leaders will not be at the ride start.
