Fred Hutch Obliteride Rolls Through Burien August 13


On Sunday morning, August 13, about 150 Obliteride cyclists will ride through Normandy Park and Burien on Day 2 of their 150-mile bike ride to raise money for cancer research at Fred Hutch.

“Burien is the most enthusiastic city
along the whole route!” – Obliteride Cyclist

Get Your Orange On

Once again, we’re going to create a veritable Three Tree Point Obliteride Orange Tunnel. The cyclists will be surrounded by orange applause and smiling faces as they ride through the Three Tree Point waterfront neighborhood before they head up Maplewild.

WABI Burien is organizing local folks to cheer the riders on. Come join the cheering crowd at Three Tree Point anytime between 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. to applaud the riders as they go by. The street will be festooned with banners, pennants and signs. Bring cow bells, pom poms, noisemakers and all-things-orange to make Burien the most memorable city on the route.


There will also be a cheering point at the hairpin turn toward the top of Maplewild. The cyclists will need applause after tackling that hill!

You can also cheer anywhere along the route. Check out the map, then grab your coffee, a lawn chair and your cheering voice to holler encouragement to the riders.

Here’s a link to the full route for Day 2, from Tacoma to Seattle, including Redondo, Des Moines, Normandy Park and White Center:

Since this is, after all, a fundraiser, you may, of course, make a monetary donation toward cancer research at Fred Hutch:

Please let other neighbors and friends know about the ride on Sunday the 13th.
I hope you’ll consider joining the cheering crowd in support of cancer research.
Far too many of us have had our lives jarred by cancer.

If you have any questions, please get in touch.

Thanks so much,
