MiiR Flagship Store
Cascade Bicycle Club is working with students from the Art Institute to create a video highlighting the Free Groups Ride programs and they’ve selected Kidical Mass to be one of the featured rides!
Meet outside the MiiR flagship store Coffee Shop/Bike Shop/Beer Garden! (3400 Stone Way North, Seattle, WA, in the Brooks building). MiiR has coffee, Mighty-O Donuts, other snacks, and lots of room inside. Read more about MiiR’s projects if you aren’t already familiar with them.
Our route is 4.3 miles and will start along the Burke-Gilman Trail, cross the Fremont Bridge, continue along the Ship Canal Trail, traverse the Westlake parking lots, and pit stop at MOHAI Cafe in case anyone needs a potty break and for some fun photo- and film ops. Then we’ll take one block of the Dexter separated bike lane to the gorgeous green Mercer bike lanes and along to the Seattle Center! We’ll park at the new Artists at Play playground.
There are many food options inside the Seattle Center Armory right next to the playground, and if it’s a hot day, think about bringing swim suits to get doused by the International Fountain or wade in the Dupen Fountain of Creation by the Vera Project (one of our favorites!).
The official ride is just one-way, but we’ll coordinate timing on heading back in small groups for those who want to ride in a pack at specific times.
