Ride Description: 

Join us for a ride from Kenmore to Mukilteo with a food stop at Red Cup Cafe.

Starting time and location: Ride starts at 10:00 am at Log Boom Park in Kenmore, where there is a restroom & water.

Parking: There is a four hour parking restriction in the Park. It is suggested that you park on NE 175th St. east of the entrance to the park.

Pace: This is a vigorous paced ride, on the same route as the moderate and brisk paced MUMPS groups. Riders are welcome to start with vigorous and drop back to the brisk or moderate group later; if you think that you might use that option, you can register online for more than one pace group. When on multi-use trails we will observe the trail speed limit.  Otherwise we will ride around 19 mph on the flats. We will regroup as necessary at major intersections and on hills. 

Route and variations to joining group:  The planned route/cue sheet is at the link below. It will not be handed out at the start, so please download or print it if you want it during the ride. The goal is to stay together via regrouping as necessary, but please bring navigation aids in case you need to finish on your own. The ride becomes self-led for those ahead of or behind the group.

Restrooms:  There are planned restroom stops at Silver Lake (mile 12.6) and at the food stop (mile 24). In case you had too much coffee at the cafe, there's an optional restroom stop at the ball fields at mile 28.8 or the Arco gas station at mile 36.8.

Food:  The food stop is brief (about 25 min.). Please bring snacks and water if you want additional nutrition and hydration along the way or in case of delays along the route.  

Cancellation: Forecast for rain or unsafe riding conditions will be cause for cancellation, in which case the ride leader will not be at the start and the cancellation will be posted in comments below, at least 2 hours before the start.

Fenders: Please be considerate of other riders' comfort and safety by using full fenders with long mud flaps if rain is expected or the roads are wet. You may still ride with us without them, but if you are spraying other riders you will need to drop to the back of the group. If it's a rain-bike day we'll ease off the pace accordingly.

Repairs: Please come with the equipment and know-how to take care of your own flats and mechanicals or with a plan for getting back to the start if your bike won't take you there (ORCA card or someone to call). If you have a problem the group will stop briefly to make sure you will be OK on your own, but we will not wait for repairs to be completed.

Safety talk and on time-departure:  Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to ride start time in order to prepare yourself and your bike prior safety talk. Ride rolls out at 10:00.

Pre-registration:  Please register in advance by clicking the red Register Now button at the top of this page, as this saves time at the start and enables the leader to email you in case of changes as well as prepare accordingly based on group size. NOTE: You need a Cascade Bicycle Club account, and starting one makes you a Basic-level member of the Club at no charge.) You don't have to un-register if you can't make the ride.

 

Comments

I am planning on joining you, but I might not be there 15 minutes before the start.  I need to drop off my grandson at 9:00, then drive home, change clothes, and bike down to Logboom.  I should be able to make it by 10:00, I am just not sure if there will be much time to spare...
