MUMPS: Do The Lake (Moderate)
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
There is a four hour parking restriction at Log Boom Park. If you are concerned it might be enforced you can park on NE 175th St heading into the park.
This moderate paced ride will happen most Mondays. (There is usually a MUMPS Brisk ride also, which starts earlier from Enatai; see separate MUMPS ride posting). The most typical route is a counter-clockwise loop of Lake Washington. Start at Log Boom Park or meet us at the Leschi Starbucks at about 11:15. Contact the ride leader by text if you plan to meet us at Leschi (in case we change the route). Depending on weather and mood of the group, the route may be shortened to cross the lake on I-90 trail, loop Mercer Island or go through Seattle to Magnolia or Green Lake.
Weather: Forecast for rain, snow, ice/frost or other unsafe riding conditions will be cause for cancellation, in which case the moderate pace ride leader will not be at the start at Log Boom Park and the cancellation will be posted (in Comments, below) at least 2 hours before the start.
Please be considerate of other riders by using full fenders and mud flaps if rain is expected or the roads are wet.
We usually stop for lunch, depending on route and weather. There are restrooms at the start and at coffee/lunch stops.
No RWGPS route or cue sheet will be provided for this ride. Mostly we stay together, and regroup as necessary.
Please come with the equipment and know-how to take care of your own flats and mechanicals (or with a plan for getting back to the start if your bike won't take you there). Please be at the start and ready to ride at least 10 minutes early for safety talk.
You can save time at the start by pre-registering here up to two hours before the start. Make sure you are logged into your CBC account (you don't have to be a member to have an account), click on REGISTER NOW, check the waiver box, and you're good to go. You don't have to un-register if you don't make it to the ride.
