Ride Description: 

Join us for a gravel ride from Northshore Athletic Fields on an 18 mile route at a Moderate flats pace of 14-16mph (~2 hours) that follows the Pipeline, Watershed, Powerline, & Sammamish River trails !

Mountain bikes are welcome, treaded 32c tires or bigger recommended, as well as a minimum 1:1 gear ratio (34 front, 34 rear).

This gravel ride follows the StinkySpoke route but uses roads to bypass Heartattack Hill. I'm likely to put it back in at a later date as an option.

Let's meet at the Northshore Athletic Fields at 9:45am for our pre-ride safety briefing, with a departure at 10am.

We will climb and descend hills at our own pace, and our goal will be to regroup frequently. We'll also limit our speed on any multi-use paths to the legal maximum (usually 15 MPH).

A Port-o-Potty is available at the start and its a relatively short ride so there are no planned stops.

You are encouraged to pre-register by clicking the red "Register Now" button above. There is no need to unregister if you decide not to ride.

Bring a spare tube and tools to fix a flat, just in case. Please have full fenders if the roads are wet, or you may be asked to ride at the rear of the group.

Note: If weather conditions meet the weather cancellation criterion listed above or if there are unforeseen hazardous riding conditions, the Ride Leader will post a ride-canceled note in the Comments section below at least two hours prior to the start and Ride Leader(s) will not be at the start location.

We hope you can join us!
