Greenlake to Carkeek and Golden Gardens

Explore Seattle!  We will do some hills to get that heart rate up.  Start locations will be in North Seattle.  We will regroup at top of every hill or at the end of the trail, whichever makes the most sense.  Riders are expected to be able fix their own flats.  

For this ride, we will start at the Greenlake Public Theatre parking lot (North West part of the lake) and head towards Ballard to climb some hills in the suburbs and head down to Golden Gardens before heading back.

We should be done before it gets dark, but just in case, bring your lights.  Just in case you missed it, this ride is HILLY.  Please show by 5:45pm for a safety briefing.  We aim to start riding BEFORE 6pm.

    Very hilly. Two sections where I might need to re-route due to road construction.

    It was great to ride with you guys, even though it was a pretty tough climb on some of those hills with my little single-speed. Nice to be undeterred by rain!

      Also, home safely! I can't see how/where to respond to your kind inquiry, Alfred, so I do it here. :)

    Sorry, I'm going to bail--raining a bit more than my gear will handle. I need to get some fenders and better lights. :)

      Alright. See you next time. I think next week's ride will be on Tuesday. Hopefully the weather is better then.

    Unless it is raining HEAVILY, I'll be doing this ride, rain or shine.

    What kind of pace do you think you'll be aiming for on this ride?

    April 13, 2014

    • Alfred F.

      Hills everyone will climb at their own pace. On the flats, probably moderate 14-16mph, so that we can recover a little bit between hills.
