Bike racks are available near the beach at Alki to lock your bike during the gathering.
SUNDAY, JULY 30, begins on the cathedral front lawn at 12:30 p.m.; meetup at Alki Beach at 2 p.m.
What better community activity in July than a gathering on the beach? Following the 11 a.m. Sunday Eucharist, meet on the labyrinth for a blessing and pre-ride snacks and connection. Then gather again at Alki Beach, meeting at the Statue of Liberty between 2—2:15 p.m. for post-ride fellowship. Alki Beach offers many choices for take out food and snacks. Bring a swimsuit for a post-ride dip. Questions? Email Emily (firstname.lastname@example.org).
There are four ways to experience this event:
Option 1: Bike 10 miles
Join pre-gathering at Saint Mark’s on the labyrinth, then bike to Alki Beach via Aloha/12th/Yesler to downtown. See route here.
Option 2: Bike 3 miles
Join pre-gathering at Saint Mark’s on the labyrinth, drive to Jack Block Park and bike to Alki Beach. See route here.
Option 3: Bus/Water Taxi/Walk
Join pre-gathering at Saint Mark’s on the labyrinth, then join a group led by Canon Barrie travelling via bus downtown followed by the Metro Water Taxi! You can then take another bus from the Water Taxi pier, or walk about 2 miles along the shore to the meeting spot.
Option 4: Travel to Alki on your own
It's not as much fun, but if your schedule requires it, you can get to the beach on your own and meet up with the groups there. Be aware that parking can take some time near Alki Beach, especially on a sunny day.
