December 21, 2011 · 2:25 PM
Registration is now underway for the 2012 7 Hills of Kirkland, presented by Evergreen Healthcare.
One of the Northwest's premier cycling events, 7 Hills will be held on May 28, 2012, Memorial Day, at Marina Park in Kirkland.
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, to end homelessness.
7 Hills of Kirkland is a fund raiser for KITH. KITH assists individuals and families on the Eastside who are caught in a homelessness crisis. Whether people are living in their cars, housed temporarily in shelters, or facing eviction, KITH will work with them to stabilize their situation.
KITH is able to make referrals, provide homelessness prevention resources, provide transitional housing and ultimately provide or assist in securing permanent low-income housing.
