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 :-)
