West Seattle’s own ‘STP’ ride: (SW) Seattle to (SW) Portland, Sunday!

Among the many big events happening this weekend is the region’s most storied bicycle ride – Seattle to Portland, or STP for short. For those not going, West Seattle Bike Connections has set up its own STP ride right here on the peninsula this Sunday:

That’s SW Seattle Street in North Admiral southward to SW Portland Street in Gatewood, then heading back north to The Junction and West Seattle Summer Fest, where a post-ride discussion is planned at the GreenLife stage, touching on current issues including the Seattle Bicycle Master Plan Update.. WSBC president Don Brubeck says they’ve “recruited Stu Hennessey and Marge Evans to be ride leaders, and made it a joint ride with West Seattle Spokespeople and Cascade Bicycle Club.” It’ll be a family-friendly, 9.5-mile, easy-pace ride – meet at Hamilton Viewpoint Park at 9:45 am Sunday. Full details on the WSBC site, including some caveats – and reasons to join the ride!

    Best wishes for all West Seattleites actually doing the full pull to Portland, OR! We’ll cheer you on. But if your training plans did not quite get realized, or if you just want a fun ride with the family, come ride with us! And be back in time for WS Summer Fest and some yard work, or a nap, or …

Sorry, comment time is over.
