**CANCELED** FRUMPS: Cedar River Trail to 4 Corners - return Soos Creek Trail
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
This week the FRUMPS ride heads southeast from Renton. From Ron Regis Park we take the Cedar River Trail which gradually climbs (2-3%) up to picturesque riverside Dorre Don. We cross over the Cedar River on an old Rail Road bridge and ride on hard-packed gravel for 0.4 miles. The lunch stop is at my favorite sandwich shop called S'wiched. Check the link below for the S'wiched menu. After lunch, there is another short trail section of packed gravel (0.2 miles) then we cruise through forest neighborhoods over to Covington. The Soos Creek Trail is a peaceful meandering paved trail that courses through natural wetlands for 5 miles back to Renton. There is a short pitch up an 11% grade for 100 yards but we will wait for the entire group at the top. Just before the end, we have a 10% descent for 1 mile down 140th Ave. There is a portable potty but no water at the start.
What to bring: Supplies and tools to fix a flat, cell phone in case you cannot finish, 2 water bottles, pocket snacks and money for lunch.
Start: Arrive in time to prepare your bike, use the restroom, and be ready to hear the route review and SMART safety briefing at 9:50 am so we can depart at 10:00 am.
Restrooms: Start, Lunch at S'wiched (mile 13.9), Soos Creek Trail (mile 29.4)
