Bike for Parks and Brews 🍺🚲
Along the Burke-Gilman Trail, the Wayne Golf Course is an 89-acre island of green in the heart of Bothell, graced by the Sammamish River. Forterra saved Wayne from development, with a vision to permanently preserve the area for community benefit, public access, and wildlife habitat. Bike with us to the Wayne Golf Course as we envision its future as a park!
We’ll start at Miir Flagship in Fremont, bike along the Burke-Gilman Trail, and when we reach the Wayne Golf Course, we’ll explore and have BYO-Picnic lunch. After, we’ll bike back to end at Fremont Brewing to cheers to the future of the park and a good day with some local hops!
