Ride Description: 

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 along the river from near Fall City to Ames Lake Road.  Electric-assist bikes welcome.  

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, pump, patch kit, 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 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 38.2.  

Please RSVP by clicking on the red Register Now button at the top of this page.  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 number won't be answered on the morning of the ride.  If weather conditions meet the Showers Cancel criteria, I will post a ride-cancelled notice in Comments, below, two hours prior and not go to the start.  Please check here before leaving for the ride.
