Please join SPOKESPEOPLE NE for our third Saturday of the month community ride. These rides provide great starter (or re-starting!) rides for adults and are located in the Northeast Seattle community. Jim Mathieu will be our leader for this month's early summer ride will go to Green Lake and will visit a solar powered home. Fun and Sun are the de facto themes! We always have fun and let's hope the weatherman brings us the sun! The route will be via community streets and the Burke-Gilman trail for a round trip of approximately 12 miles. There is a modest grade rise on the return route but the rest of the ride is flat or downhill. These rides start between the Wedgwood Presbyterian Church and the Hunter Tree Farm property near 35th Ave NE & NE 80th Street. Please show up at 12:45 to hear about safe riding, proper helmet fit, and bike function check. These “Easy” paced rides start at 1PM, typically include a midway stop, and are approximately 10-15 +/- miles round trip. We will return to the starting point by about 3PM. All rides include experienced bike commuters who accompany us to offer encouragement and model good road riding techniques. Steady rain cancels the ride.
