South Lake Washington Loop with Coffee
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Please note: During COVID-19 Phases 1.5 and 2, all Free Group Rides are limited to six total participants: the Ride Leader and five others. Registration for the ride (using the red “Register Now” button above) is REQUIRED to participate.
If you decide not to ride, please unregister for this ride so that an additional spot will be made available to another. Spots fill up quickly and there is usually a waiting list so please be courteous to other riders and don't wait until the last minute to unregister.
Face coverings (for mouth and nose) are required when the group makes extended stops. Face coverings are recommended for the duration of the ride. Please bring personal hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes and tissues for use at rest stops.
We'll ride around the southern part of Lake Washington and across Mercer Island. We'll meet at the Newport Hills Park and Ride (405- exit 9). Quick stop at Coulon Park for a bathroom break. There will be a quick coffee stop on Mercer Island.
If weather conditions meet the cancel criteria on the day of the ride, I will post a ride-canceled notice in Comments, below, two hours prior to the start. Please check here before leaving for the ride.
Please arrive 20 minutes prior to the ride start to ready your bike and hear the safety briefing. If wet weather, please be courteous to other riders by having fenders on your bike (preferably extra long with a buddy/mud flap).
The club has issued new guidelines related to COVID-19 at the link above. Please do not plan to ride if you have a fever, cough, difficulty breathing or other cold or flu-like symptoms, or have other risk factors.
Also there is no water at the start and limited opportunities for hand washing on the route. I would highly recommend all riders carry hand sanitizer or wipes at all times and use as appropriate. Thanks for your cooperation.
