Ride Description: 

We will meet at Element Cycles in Redmond. There is ample parking in the adjacent lot. Please don't park in the lot immediately in front of Element so that their customers have convenient access. Or better yet, ride to the start!

Midweek Eastside Evening Training Series: The MEETS rides will be held every Wednesday evening April 3rd through September 25th. These will be training routes that incorporate local hills, are between 20-30 miles, and will progress from ~ 1,200 to 2,500 feet of elevation gain. There will be four paces offered – Steady (12-14 mph on flats); Moderate (14-16 mph on flats); Brisk (16-18 mph on flats); and Vigorous (18-20 mph on the flats) which will all use a common base route each week.

Mechanicals/Pace: Riders must be able to sustain the appropriate pace for their selected group; know how to read a cue sheet or make it home should they become separated from the group; know how to change a flat (and have the requisite equipment; groups will not stop for mechanical issues); and have a positive attitude! Because this is a training series with multiple paces, we will regroup at the tops of hills (approximately 3 minutes), and riders who are unable to keep up will need to drop back a pace.

Registration: Registration on the Cascade site is free and greatly helps the sign in process at the start. You may pre-sign the waiver by clicking on the "Register Now" button under the ride title and if you cannot make the ride there is no need to unregister. Registering requires a Cascade account. Please register by 3:30 pm the day of the ride as that is when waivers will be printed for ride start.

New Riders: New riders are always welcome as long as you are able to sustain the rigors of the series. If you are a brand new rider, this may not be the right ride for you.  Please see the new rider information on the Cascade website for additional general information. 

Kids: This is a rigorous training series and it may not be appropriate for your child. Please contact the Series Director 48 hours in advance for approval and you must adhere to the stated Cascade policy 

Plan to arrive at least 20 minutes prior to the start time to hear the route briefing, safety notes, and sign the waiver form (or check off your name) for an on-time departure promptly at 6:00.

You will NOT be allowed to ride if you do not show up in time to hear the safety briefing. 

A WORKING HEAD AND TAIL LIGHT ARE REQUIRED.  If roads are wet or rain is likely, fenders with long mudflaps are a safety item and are strongly recommended.

Route: RWGPS routes will be posted as a comment in the Cascade ride listing by Tuesday night before the ride.

Cue Sheets: Please print a cue sheet if you need one.

Rest stops: There will be no planned rest stops as these are short rides; however there are restrooms at the start. 

Showers Cancel: Steady rain or otherwise unsafe riding conditions (including air quality) will cancel. In the event that conditions are as described for cancellation, ride leaders will not be at the ride start and ride cancellation will be posted in the comments section of the Cascade listing at least two hours prior to the ride start. Series Director will be available by phone should you have questions.

Ride Leader Mentoring opportunities are available: Email the Series Director (Melanie Kelsey) to inquire: makelsey@comcast.net at least one week prior.

You lost me, buddy. I mean, I assume I get what youre declaring. I understand what you are saying, but you just appear to have forgotten that there are some other men and women inside the world who see this issue for what it actually is and may possibly not agree with you.
