Want to experience Seattle like never before? You must make time for the Cascade Bicycle Club's Emerald City Ride. This year, the route includes the Alaskan Way Viaduct and Aurora Bridge, giving riders the chance to bike through the Viaduct before it's demolished next year. Riders can choose between the 3-mile Viaduct-only experience, or the full 12-mile loop (which travels north on Aurora to Fremont and Gas Works Park before returning south on I-5 Express).

The 12-mile route also includes a rest stop across from Ivar's in Fremont, and will feature baked good from Essential Bakery, Clif products, and other snacks. Riders will also receive a commemorative souvenir, and t-shirts will also be available to purchase.

What You Need to Know About the Emerald City Ride

  • Riders on the 12-mile route will start between 7:00 AM and 8:45 AM, whereas those biking the 3-mile option will start at 9:15 AM.
  • There will be an official after-party for the event at the Pyramid Alehouse between 9:00 AM and 12:30 PM.
