Family Ride/Cookie Ride - North Beach August 1st 1:30pm

This month our family ride will be the PTBA's annual Cookie Ride. We had tentatively planned our family ride for the weekend of july 31/aug 1, but then remembered the PTBA's annual Cookie Ride scheduled for Sunday August 1st. This is a fun, family oriented bike ride, that has the added bonus of lots of homemade cookies, so that's where we will be. The ride meets at North Beach Park at 1:30pm, families, children, and bike trailers are encouraged. For more info visit the PTBA's website. See you there!

Vicki rides on!

Hello Broken Spoke followers,

Our local rider Vicki is heading out on her PKD Awareness ride on Sunday July 11th. Please consider joining her in Seattle for her send off! Full details of her trek on her webpage: http://rideforpkd.blogspot.com/


About her ride:

I'm riding to raise awareness for Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) and to raise funds for research to find a cure!

The route begins with a rally - planned for Sunday, July 11th, 2010 - at Magnuson Park in Seattle. I will then follow highways and backroads through Centralia, WA before turning west at Longview to Cathlamet. From there, I will board the ferry, crossing the Columbia River into Oregon, before heading west again to Astoria, where I will connect with Highway 101 heading south along the beautiful Oregon Coast, following the Pacific Coast Highway for the remainder of the trip into San Diego, arriving in "America's Finest City" on August 6th, 2010. The following rallys are planned along the route:


Sunday, July 11 2010: Magnuson Park, Seattle 9-11:30am
Kid's Fun Ride
Jersey Raffle
Ride on the Burke-Gilman Trail and Lake Washington Blvd to Seward Park


Good Luck and have fun Vicki,
The Broken Spoke staff
