Meet the Team Ride - Cascade's High Performance Cycling Team
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Are you interested in learning about Cascade's High Performance Cycling (HPC) Team? Are you a team member who would like to become more active or do a social ride with your teammates? Are you just looking for a group ride on a fall day? Then this ride is for you.
HPC is for cyclists who like to ride fast, hard, far, and climb hills in a non-racing environment. The team is dedicated to supporting strong cyclists who want to improve their skills and fitness while practicing safe group cycling techniques. Although we are not a racing team, some teammates are also members of WSBA racing teams, participate in ultra and randonneuring events, or compete in multisport events.
Cascade's High Performance Cycling Team is great option for:
-- Riders who are developing fitness and skills and want to ride with folks who are faster and more experienced
-- Strong riders who are looking for compatible cycling buddies who regularly do long, scenic, challenging rides
-- Racers who want to diversify and ride with folks who regularly do long, scenic, challenging rides.
Meet at the west side of the I-90 bike tunnel in Sam Smith Park in time for an 8:30 a.m. departure (I.e., arrive by 8:20). We’ll leave Sam Smith at 8:30 a.m. and pick up riders at Enatai Beach Park (under the east end of the I-90 east channel bridge) at 9:05 a.m. We’ll do a "stay-together" loop through the east side with an optional hot lap around Mercer Island at the end. We will maintain a pace of not more than 18 mph on the flats to keep it social and will regroup after the hills. The optional hot lap will be a bit spicier at your choice of brisk to a super strenuous pace and we will regroup again at the end of the hot lap. Rain cancels
