WRUMPS Five Town Loop
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Please join us for a mid-week 54 mile ride that will take us through five towns. We will start in Auburn from the Outlet Collection Mall and ride through town towards Black Diamond climbing up the Auburn Black Diamond Road. A nice 4 mile climb that will wake your legs for the rest of the journey. We will continue from Black Diamond towards Maple Valley and then on to Renton. After Renton we will head back south passing through Kent and back to our start in Auburn. A nice counter clockwise circuit with a little bit of everything. Climbs, descents, flat sections and rollers.
Please arrive early, at least 15-20 minutes before the ride start for our pre-ride safety briefing, we will depart promptly at 8:30 am.
We will climb and descend hills at our own pace, and our goal will be to re-group at the top of all the big climbs. We'll also limit our speed on any multi-use paths to the legal maximum, usually 15 mph with the exception of a 2 mile stretch of trail through Renton. The speed limit there is 10 mph.
Restrooms are available at the start in the Walmart store. We will have a food stop at mile 19.4 at the Maple Valley Starbucks. There is also a QFC next door to the Starbucks. Our next bathroom stop will be at mile 32 at the Renton Community Center and again at mile 42 at Three Friends Fishing Hole.
