Full Details (from Seattle Beer Week’s Site):
We begin downtown (or in Bremerton), head south along the SoDo Trail to Georgetown, then climb up to Beacon Hill for a ride through the ID to First Hill. From there we fly down to Montlake, cross the Cut, and catch the Burke Gilman for the final stretch through Fremont and Ballard. It’s a route everyone can do, and we promise you’ll have fun. The pace is easy as always – it’s not at all about speed!
