Mark your calendars for the 2011 7 Hills of Kirkland cycling event benefitting Kirkland Interfaith Transitions in Housing (KITH). Kirkland's 7 Hills is one of the premier cycling events in the Northwest and a great spectator sport for those inclined to watch rather than ride.
Whether you choose the traditional 7 Hill Route (approximately 40 miles), the popular Metric Century Route, or the challenging Century Route, you'll enjoy the scenery and support KITH. Travel at your own pace through urban, suburban and rural roads on a holiday when cyclists seem to outnumber vehicles. Follow the signs and "Dan Henry's" to great food stops, challenging ascents and wonderful descents. Climb Winery Hill and be rejuvenated by the applause of your own cheering section and the lovely strains of a bagpiper. All of this for such a great cause. www.7hillskirkland.org
