AAA-Washington presenting bicycling benefit Ride Around The Sound on September 13th

Exercise your lungs – while fighting lung disease. You can do that in six weeks by joining Ride Around the Sound, part of which will go through West Seattle and White Center. Though you might associate WSB sponsor AAA-Washington mostly with cars, it’s excited about this big bike ride, and here’s why:

AAA Washington is proud to announce that we are the presenting sponsor of the American Lung Association Ride Around the Sound this year. This event features three scenic routes between Seattle and Bremerton that range from 38 to 92 miles, making it perfect for both beginning bikers and experienced cyclists.

Your AAA West Seattle store employees invite all West Seattle Blog readers to join us in supporting this great organization, either by riding in the event itself or pledging your support for a rider. All AAA members get a 20% discount off the registration fee. In addition, we’d like to throw down a friendly challenge to our fellow WSB Sponsors to put together a team and ride with us! There are also opportunities to help promote the event by placing a poster in your window or linking to the ALA Ride Around the Sound website

Let’s help the ALA have a record fundraising year so they can continue to improve the health and wellbeing of our community.

Not an AAA member? You can fix that here. To see the three course alternatives for Ride Around The Sound, go here for the 92-mile version (which goes through Highland Park and White Center), go here for the 73-mile version, and here for the 38-mile version. To form or join a team, go here.

    Is the 92 miler a one day event? Last year it was longer with an over-night at UPS in Tacoma.

    Peloton – you might be thinking of RAPSody, this one’s different. This is a one-day ride from Seattle to Bremerton, free ferry takes you straight back at the end of the day. alternate start in Tacoma for 38 mi route or Normandy Park for 73 mi.

Sorry, comment time is over.
