Learn to ride your bike safely — right here in West Seattle

Spokespeople West Seattle will be riding a 7.5 mile loop of Alki Beach on Aug. 1 enjoying the peak of summer before the crowds arrive at the beach.

The ride leaves Alki Bike and Board 2606 California Avenue SW. at 10 A.M. Bike safety checks and helmet fits are done prior to the ride so come at least 15 minutes early.

Bring a little money for a stop on Alki Beach for a summer treat. As always Spokespeople ride together and regroup on hill climbs. Bicycle riding advice is gladly given.

This ride is in partnership with Cascade Bicycle Club, Sustainable West Seattle and Spokespeople. Ride leaders are Stu Hennessey and Bill Reiswig.
