Cyclists can make a difference in their community by joining Attain Housing in its annual 7 Hills of Kirkland event, a fundraiser for local families in need, on May 27.

The scenic ride will feature three routes: the traditional 7 Hill Route (approximately 40 miles), the popular Metric Century Route (60 miles) or the challenging Century Route (100 miles). All three routes are well-marked and well-supported with technical and road assistance. Cyclists can travel at their own pace over urban, suburban and rural roads. Start at the Kirkland waterfront, follow the signs and “Dan Henry’s” to food stops, “challenging ascents and wonderful descents,” according to a press release. While climbing Winery Hill, cyclists can be rejuvenated by the applause of their own cheering section and the music of Neil the bagpiper.

“In addition to the sense of accomplishment from the great ride, participants can take pride in knowing they are helping families in their uphill climb to overcome homelessness by supporting Attain Housing,” reads a press release. In its 30th year, Attain Housing helps people as they stabilize their family, work on creating a stronger future and find and retain safe and permanent housing.
