Ride Description: 

Join us for a ride to May Valley and Beaver Lake, then loop around Lake Sammamish before climbing back to Lakemont. This ride has everything. Great downhills, rollers in rural countryside and hills! Plan to arrive at least 20 minutes before the start time to prepare your bike, hear the route briefing, safety notes, and sign the waiver form for an on-time departure.

Pace: Riders should be able to sustain 16-18 on the flats, and we will ride at the high end of the pace. We’ll tackle the hills at our own pace.
Mechanicals: Riders should know how to read a cue sheet, change a flat tire, and have a backup plan if they are unable to finish the ride.
Cue Sheets: Cue sheets will not be provided, so please print your own copy from the route link or download it to your own device.
Equipment: Long fenders are requested if rain is in the forecast. Helmets are required to ride.
Registration: Please pre-register & sign e-waiver (register button right below the ride title) so we can save time at the ride start. Note that this on-line RSVP requires a Cascade Bicycle Club account, which is easy to set up, but if you don't want one just come anyway and sign the hard-copy attendance/hold harmless sheet.
Cancellation Policy: Rain Cancels. Ride cancellation will be posted in the comments section below at least two hours prior to the ride start. In the event, ride leaders will not come to the ride start.
Restrooms: At Start. Planned restroom break at mile 17.8 (Safeway) and coffee break at mile 33.2 (Peet”s). As always, please carry enough food and water during the ride.
