Perfect weather, too:

THE BIG SATURDAY BIKE RIDE: It’s the annual Water and Spirit Bike Ride, starting at St. John the Baptist Church in the Admiral District with registration 6:30-8 am, proceeding through three ferry crossings over the course of the day, concluding with a barbecue on Alki. Proceeds benefit Family Promise of Seattle, a West Seattle-based nonprofit that helps homeless families around the city. Full details here.

THE NOT-AS-BIG SATURDAY BIKE RIDE: Meet at the Log House Museum at 12:30 pm to tour Alki, and beyond; the ride will end at the Duwamish Longhouse around 2 pm. Details here.

SUNDAY BIKE RIDE: From Stu Hennessey at Alki Bike and Board: His shop is the meeting place at 10 am Sunday for this month’s Spokespeople West Seattle ride, North Admiral to downtown, “a stay-together ride at a leisurely and easy pace, 11.5 miles round trip, with hills … This ride will feature the new SODO bike trail along the Sound Transit light-rail line.” Questions?

    The Water and Spirit Ride is a beautiful ride along the east and west shores of Puget Sound. I have toured the rolling hills of West Seattle and the Kitsap Peninsula the past couple years with this ride and found it very organized- a Saturday morning well spent.

Sorry, comment time is over.
