Emerald City Ride presented by Kaiser Permanente 2018
A new once-in-a-lifetime route!
Join 7,000+ of your friends for the third edition of the Emerald City Ride presented by Kaiser Permanente. This year’s route will be another once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, giving registered riders the opportunity to bike on the SR 99 Viaduct and I-5 Express Lanes, both closed to vehicle traffic.
Choose from a 12-mile full loop or 3-mile out and back on the Viaduct. Both routes will have views that can’t be beat and access to roads normally not available to people riding bicycles. This ride is intended to be accessible to everyone who enjoys riding a bicycle!
Registered riders will receive a commemorative souvenir as a giveaway and we will have t-shirts available for purchase. Both routes are fully supported and the longer route will feature a rest stop with tasty treats. Ride details.
