Bicycling At Lake Union to Ballard Locks And Back

Per request we now bicycle along Lake Union into Fremont and from there to the Ballard Locks. It is about a 10 mile roundtrip with fairly flat  road. This will be the main purpose of this event.

If the group would like there are 2 additional options to extend the ride and views

Option #1: ride 1.8 miles x2  to go on to Golden Garden,  after we have seen the locks.  This trail lends itself to just peddle hard and cruise :-)

Option #2 in Fremont: ride the rest of Lake Union and add 6 more miles.  More beautiful houses and neighborhoods to see.

If all the options are taken, it would be a 17 mile roundtrip

We will have lunch at The Shelter Lounge where we can roast marshmellows for fun

Bring your bike, helmet and a smile and let's have fun peddling at a leger pace ( I have a mountain bike)

NOTE: A small section in Ballard is street biking, crossing intersections and navigating traffic. No worries. We will wait for anyone getting stuck on a red light. Safety first :-)

    Just got word from the bike shop that my tune-up won't be done today (and shop is closed tomorrow). :-( Need a new tire rim (custom) and calipers they don't have and both won't be arriving 'till early next week so I need to bow out. Have a GREAT ride tomorrow!
