If 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.
