The annual EvergreenHealth 7 Hills of Kirkland Cycling to End Homelessness event will take place on Memorial Day, May 29, starting at Marina Park in downtown Kirkland.

Choose between the traditional 7 Hill Route, the popular Metric Century Route, or the challenging Century Route, with most rides passing through the cities of Kirkland, Redmond, Kenmore and Woodinville. Cyclists are encouraged to go at their own pace through urban, suburban, and rural roads, on a holiday when cyclists seem to outnumber vehicles.

Start the morning on the Kirkland waterfront, follow a well-marked course to food stops, challenging ascents, and wonderful descents. Climb Winery Hill to hear a bagpiper.

The traditional 7 Hills course is approximately 40 miles long with about 3,000 feet of climbing.

Funds raised by EvergreenHealth 7 Hills of Kirkland benefit Attain Housing, a Kirkland nonprofit organization providing affordable housing and case management for homeless and at-risk families with children.
