WRUMPS--NE Seattle-Woodinville-Redmond-520 Bridge <35>
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
We'll ride a clockwise loop from Maple Leaf Park in NE Seattle to Woodinville, Redmond, and the 520 Bridge. We'll have a short eat-it-and-beat-it stop at a QFC/Starbucks in Redmond; you can buy food, or carry your own. There is no restroom at the start, so please come prepared. We'll stop at the Log Boom Park bathrooms/Mile 7; the QFC/Starbucks near Element Cycles in Redmond/Mile 23.6; and the UW Husky Union Building/Mile 36.9. A RideWithGPS route map and cue sheet are at the Link, below. If you need a cue sheet, please print one.
Meet on 14th Avenue NE at the east side of lower Maple Leaf Park near the intersection of 14th Avenue NE and NE 82nd Street. If you drive, park on 14th Avenue NE. Metro Route 73 will get you to 15th Avenue NE and NE 80th or NE 85th. Metro Route 67 will get you to Roosevelt Way NE and NE 85th.
Please be ready to ride 10 minutes before start time so we can do the safety briefing and get on the road. Bring ID; spare tube, tools, patch kit, and skills to fix flats; and 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 and fenders with long mudflaps show that you care.
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 7:30 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. 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.
