Marymoor-Duthie Hill-Carnation-Redmond Ridge <41>
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
A mostly rural loop ride out of Redmond, across the Sammamish Plateau, down Duthie Hill Road into the Snoqualmie River Valley, and back via Carnation, Union Hill, and Redmond Ridge. Two good climbs, two fast descents, assorted rollers, and a long flat run through the fields and along the river from near Fall City to Ames Lake Road.
Please be ready to ride by 10 minutes before start time so we can do the safety briefing and get on the road. Route map and cue sheet are at the Link, below. If you want a cue sheet, please print it. Bring ID; spare tube, tools, patch kit, pump, and skills to fix flats; and have a phone and a plan for rescue if your bike fails. If roads are wet, roostertails from bare tires are a safety issue for other riders. Fenders with long mudflaps show that you care.
No formal food stop, but if needed we'll pause at the Carnation Starbucks for relief and refreshment along the way. Porta-pot but no water at the start. Restrooms and water at Beaver Lake/Mile 10, Carnation/Mile 22.5, and Redmond Ridge Park/Mile 35.
Please RSVP by clicking on the red "Register Now" button under the ride title above. This will save time at the start. NOTE: I will print the ride waiver at 7 AM on ride day. It's not a problem if you decide after that time to ride but you'll need to sign in at the start.
The listed phone will not be answered on the morning of the ride and its voicemail will not be checked. If weather conditions meet the "Showers cancel" criterion, I will post a ride-cancelled note in Comments, below, at least 2 hours prior and not go to the start. Very cold overnight temperatures, frost, ice, or snow also cancel. Please check here before leaving for the ride.
