Ride Description: 

Are you wondering what you can ride now that GR2R has ended? This will be a continuation of the rides from GR2R and bridge the gap to CTS or other rides you have this Spring.

This will be a "staple" route that many group rides follow. We will start at Pilchuck Park in Snohomish and ride out Old Snohomish Monroe Road to Monroe. From there we will go South on 203 for a short section and turn onto Tualco Road, then ride over to High Bridge Road. High Bridge Road has a climb up that will give you some great views and then we will work our way back to Broadway and Springhetti before ending back in Snohomish. This is a scenic route along backroads and out in the country.

In addition to steady rain, ice/snow and any other hazardous conditions will cancel a ride. If a ride is canceled due to hazardous conditions, a notice will be posted here, in the Comments section below, by 8:00 AM on the day of the ride.  If that notice is posted, the ride leaders will not be at the start.

Ride Notes: All riders should bring ID; spare tube, tools, patch kit, pump, and skills to fix flats; a phone and a plan for rescue if your bike fails; and snacks and water.  Waiting for flat tire repair or mechanical issues will be at the discretion of the ride leader. Dress appropriately and use fenders with long mudflaps on your bike if the roads are wet.   Please arrive at least 20 minutes early (9:40 AM) to get yourself ready, listen to the safety briefing, and sign or check the waiver. 10:00 AM is roll-out time!

The route is posted below. Restrooms are at the start or we can stop a short distance from the start in Snohomish.
