Eastside Tours Evening Ride
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Welcome to the 20th year of Eastside Tours.
My goal is for everybody who rides with us to have a safe and enjoyable ride. Eastside Tours is a bit different than many other daily rides.
- Every ride is artisanally crafted from the best roads the Eastside has to offer. Every night is different. We range from Bothell in the north to North Renton in the South, from Medina out to Ames Lake and the Sammamish Plateau. Winter rides tend to be more on the west side, summer rides more on the east side. The only one who knows the route is the ride leader, and he isn't telling.
- We are mellow on the flats; I do my best to keep us in the posted speed range, and we stay together as a group.
- We like hills. Expect 1500' or so on an average ride. All hills are ride at your own pace, regroup at the top. A hill like Sahalee or Louis Thompson are typical of the hills we ride.
If you are wondering if this ride is for you, look at the sample rides on the website, or contact the ride leader.
If the weather is marginal, the ride leader will make a go/no-go decision at or before 5:30 PM. Cancellations will be posted in the comments for the ride, on the Eastside Tours facebook page, and on the meetup for the ride.
LIGHTS REQUIRED. It will be after dark when we return to the starting point. I suggest a front light that is at least 600 lumens and a good rear light.
