Please join SPOKESPEOPLE NE for our third Saturday of the month community ride. This month's summer ride will go to the Ballard Locks and Fish Ladder. The route will be via community streets and the Burke-Gilman trail, returning via the Ship Canal trail for a round trip of approximately 19 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 Wedgewood 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 and typically include a midway stop. We will return to the starting point about 3PM. All rides include experienced bike commuters who accompany us to offer encouragement and model good road riding techniques.
