I know there are a number of Clydes and Athenas from the Pacific Northwest, who hang out in this sub-forum. Most of you are already aware of the Chilly Hilly, no doubt. Will you be doing the ride this year?
For everyone else: on Feb 26, we're going to bring our bikes onto a ferry boat, cross about five miles of Puget Sound to Bainbridge Island, and ride our bikes around the perimeter of the island. There will be a quaint little town, shoreline, woods, and lots of rolling hills. It's not too late to come visit Seattle.
If you're a Point 83 pirate, it isn't the "Chilly Hilly," but the "****ing Hills Race."
Here are pics (not mine) from previous rides.
