Ride Description: 

Join us for a ramble through the eastside countryside and urban roads of Seattle. We'll enjoy the quieter country roads as we travel from Woodinville through Snohomish traveling along the river. From there we travel to Everett where it gets urban as we roll along toward Mukilteo. We'll climb up and down Mukilteo Blvd. enjoying the lovely views of Whidbey and Camano Islands. To keep you in climbing condition, we'll venture up Mukilteo Speedway, but rest assured it will all be worth it. Just when we've had enough of climbing, we turn toward Edmonds and have about a 6 mile mostly downward run into Edmonds. You can't not have fun on this stretch! We'll take a break for lunch at the Red Twig Cafe with just about 15 miles left to Woodinville.

Please make sure you have ample snacks with you since our lunch break won't be until about 44 miles. We'll dine on those at our bathroom stops.

We'll maintain a moderate pace of 14-16 mph on the flats, faster on the downward grades, and climbing at one's own pace with regroups at the top of all hills.

Riders should bring tools and knowledge to repair flats and minor mechanical repairs. It's a good idea to have a back up plan in case of a major mechanical. Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before the start in order to prepare yourself and your bike prior to safety briefing.
