Ride Description: 

Please join us for a low-key ride around Lake Sammamish!

Rest stops: There is a restroom at the start, but there is no place to fill water bottles (it’s a portable restroom), so please do that before coming to the start. We'll stop for coffee and pastries at PCC in Issaquah.

Weather: Steady rain or dangerous conditions will result in a cancellation, and the ride leader will post this information here at least two hours before the start of the ride.

Note: On the way back to Marymoor Park from Issaquah, we will be staying on the East Lake Sammamish Trail, instead of riding on the road.  One section of this trail is unpaved, but it is very hard-packed gravel, and quite pleasant to ride on.

Registration: Please sign the electronic waiver above. This saves time at the start of the ride. Use the "Register" button, which will only be available after you log in.

Beginning riders are extremely welcome!

Comments

My Weather Channel app tells me 80% chance of rain tonight at 6pm. Not looking promising. Given that this is intended to be a ride for beginning and returning riders, I'd rather not subject them to pouring rain. 

I'll make a determination at 4pm and will post here whether the ride is cancelled or will go ahead.

It's coming down steadily in Redmond (and that's only at what Weather Channel says is 75% Precip, and 85% is forecast for later.

So cancelling the ride today :-( 

Next Lake Samm Loop ride will probably be 6/6.
