I’m continuously amazed by the bike and route knowledge of some of my fellow ride leaders, and this weekend’s ride with Bill Thorness is no exception. Join Bill for his Historic Seattle Ride on Saturday, Oct. 6 and see the city the way our grandparents and great-grandparents did!
This leisurely-paced loop will start at Denny Park in Seattle, and use some of the same 120-year-old routes connecting Lake Union to Lake Washington that were used way back when. The ride will include Volunteer Park, which has a 100-year-old conservatory and a statue of William Henry Seward, who was instrumental in the U.S. purchasing Alaska, and an historic cycling display at the top of the old water tower. Be prepared for a couple of good climbs, and to be rewarded with a coffee or pastry break midpoint. Bill’s informative ride will be an awesome way to spend a Saturday morning.
The ride will take off at 10 a.m. – check the Cascade Daily Rides Calendar for details. See you there!
