Cascade’s annual Chilly Hilly ride around Bainbridge is Sunday

Chilly HillyIf forecasts hold out, it may not be so chilly for Sunday’s Chilly Hilly. Cascade Bicycle Club’s first big ride of the year, this ride around hilly Bainbridge Island starts with an iconic ferry ride filled with bikes.

It’s also one of the few Cascade rides where you can register at the start line. Although the ride is a celebration of biking in rainy cold weather, participation numbers tend to spike when the event stumbles on nice weather.

Show up at Pyramid Alehouse (1st Ave across from Safeco Field) between 7 – 10 a.m. Sunday. Registration costs $40 and includes your ferry trip and food at a stop at Battle Point Park. If you are already on the west side of Elliott Bay, you can skip the ferry and start at B.I. Cycle Shop in Winslow for $30.

    West seattle is the west side of elliot Bay. Geography fail.

      But…but it’s not

      Nope. You’re all wrong. Elliott Bay is everything east of an imaginary line between West Point (Discovery Park) and Alki Point. Everything west of that is Puget Sound, or, if you’re going to be petty, the “Salish Sea”.

    While I used to do this ride and pay my $40 for “a good cause” it seemed like they always ran out of food long before I got to the food station. I got run down by people who don’t seem to know how to ride in a straight line. And the weather usually sucked. Then one year I showed up too late to register on either side, yet the roads were still packed with riders. Since then I’ve vowed not to “register” but rather to ride an alternate weekend when it’s no longer “chilly” for the cost of the ferry. It’s much less chaotic even if I don’t add to the crowd photo on the ferry docks. And a lot more pleasant.
