Scott's Thursday Night Social Ride
[generally less than 20 Miles, 600-1100 feet total elevation gain]
The ride starts at 6:30PM at Gasworks Park and invariably takes as many as 40-50 bikers (usually 10-15) on a tour through Seattle back streets and alleys that is sure to be both enjoyable and on routes you haven't travelled before. (I've been going on these rides for about 25 years and some of the routes are still new ... well maybe my memory is slipping.) After the ride, a good percentage of the group retires to an eatery in Fremont (for the past few years Barlees [2002 update - Barlees is no longer (Edmonds restaurant closed in 2011) - it has morphed to Tawon Thai which was the eatery of choice 2002-2003. In 2004/2005 the weekly eatery was the Essential Baking Company. Unfortunately in 2006, Essential closed it's evening hours.
In 2006-2011, the group ate at a Sports Bar - what? - the Fremont Dock which with the Washington state no smoking law works OK. For 2012 we ate at Blue Moon Hamburgers in Fremont with a few trips to Ivars as the Fremont Dock was closed for reconstruction. But happily in 2013 we will be eating at Fremont Dock as the reconstuction is finished. Actually we didn't eat at the Dock in 2013 as it was "taken over" by hundreds of drinking college students playing a strange form of Bocci. We supped at Blue Moon Hamburgers. In 2015 we couldn't eat at Blue Moon as they closed at 9PM.
Luckily for us in 2015 we switched to the The Nickerson Street Salooon I say luckily as the Saloon has a full menu, many beers and also has outdoor dining which we used most of the time. We also had a wonderful waitress in 2015.
Come join us after work at 6:30 PM on summer Thursday nights at Gasworks Park and enjoy some non-competitive social bicycling at a leisurely pace.
