REASONS TO RIDE WITH US ON STP WEEKEND (Sunday, July 14th):
- Didn’t make the 14,000 rider cutoff for Cascade Bicycle Club’s Seattle to Portland ride.
- Can’t imagine why anyone would want to ride a bike 200 miles in one or two days.
- Have never left the peninsula and see no reason to start now. “We have everything in West Seattle”.
- Don’t really know anyone in Portland.
- Portland think they all that, but they ain’t.
- Like to sleep in own bed instead of on a baseball field in Chehalis, or at least with a good friend with a nice bed and indoor plumbing.
So, COME RIDE West Seattle STP WITH US!
Family friendly West Seattle Bike Connections ride supported by West Seattle Spokespeople and Cascade Bicycle Club. Ride from Seattle to Portland and back in just 1 morning!
Meet on Sunday (7/14) at 9:45am at Hamilton View Point on California Ave SW to sign in, and be ready to roll at 10:00 on a 9.5 mile easy pace ride via proposed Greenway routes from SW Seattle Street in the Admiral Neighborhood to SW Portland Street in the Fauntlee Crest Neighborhood.
Experienced, certified ride leaders Stu Hennessey and Marge Evans will keep the group together and ride at a social pace. No one left behind. Ride continues on from SW Portland to California and Alaska (the West Seattle Junction, that is) to join the West Seattle Summer Fest. We’ll be at the Greenlife Stage for post ride discussion or routes and bike riding improvements proposed in the Seattle Bike Master Plan update. Helmets required. This is a Cascade Bicycle Club sponsored ride.
No fee, no t-shirt, no medal, and no bagels with peanut butter, but we stop at a fabulous festival with street food vendors, live bands, arts and crafts!
