Sign up in advance here if you want to save time.  Check back just before the event for updates and details.

This will be a Cascade free daily ride. Liesurely pace (10-12 mph) on the Alki and West Duwamish Trails. We will stay together, and stop to hear stories at Anchor Park at Duwamish Head; at the water pumping station on Harbor Ave; at the monument to the Croatian immigrant town of Riverside; and at Herring’s House Park/T107 park across from the Duwamish Tribe’s Longhouse. Snacks and exploration there. Ride back. Bring or buy lunch at the beach if you can stay!
