Magnolia’s annual Bike the Bluff fundraising ride is scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 10. This popular neighborhood event includes a variety of routes for cyclists of all ages. You can pick a 4.5 or 6 mile course and both will start and end on the Catharine Blaine playground. There are also scenic detours that can add distance for those looking for a challenge or a virtually flat 2-mile-round-trip sidewalk route for the youngest of riders.
Registration is available here or on the day of the event beginning at 9:30. The course opens at 10:00 am and closes at 2:00 pm. Riders 12 and over are $20, riders 11 and under are $15 and a family registration is $40. Alpine Hut has donated services to make sure bikes are road-worthy and Cascade Bicycle Club will provide helmet fitting by trained volunteers. Helmets are required for all riders.
Proceeds from Bike the Bluff will help send Catharine Blaine School’s incoming fifth-graders to a four-day environmental science camp on Bainbridge Island.
