West Seattle Hill Ride Before the Feast
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Come join me for an extremely hilly loop (with some 14+% grades) around West Seattle before the rain hits and the turkey is out of the oven. Restrooms at the start. We'll keep moving (no planned stops) to stay warm, with regroups at hill tops and at turns. Be ready to roll and signed in by 8:00 am to hear the mandatory safety briefing.
