West Seattle STP Ride – Sunday July 10

Have you ever wanted to do the Seattle to Portland bike ride? Or even wanted to do the 1-day STP? And never trained for it? Here is your big fat chance!

Do it in 2 hours, and end up at a huge finish line party! One week before Cascade’s big STP, so perfect for training for that in case you forgot.

West Seattle Bike Connections will be riding again from SW Seattle Street in the Admiral neighborhood to SW Portland St in Fauntlee Hills, and back north to Summerfest at the West Seattle Junction, for a fabulous finish line party. After an hour or two there, participants can ride home independently, or ride with a leader back to Hamilton Viewpoint.

Family friendly! We have had 3-generation family groups. Easy pace. We will stay together and work together to cross any busy intersections. Led by Don Brubeck and Marge Evans. More co-leaders welcome.

This is a Cascade free daily ride with certified leaders. Helmets required. Save time at the start by registering in advance.

Route with cue sheet:

7.5 miles south to SW Portland and back north to Summerfest at the Junction. (10.2 for total round trip to the Hamilton Viewpoint start.) Route is mostly on quieter residential streets along the ridge parallel to California Avenue SW.

Some hills but less than most West Seattle routes. One block you (we) might walk up. About 450 feet of elevation gain over 7.5 miles. 640 feet for the full 10.2 miles.DSC09496 2015-07-12 10.01.17 DSC09493

For children riding their own bikes: parent or guardian please read and conform to Cascade’s policy and call ride leader at least a day in advance. http://www.cascade.org/information-parents.
