MUMPS: Loop the Other Lake (Vigorous)
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
MUMPS will loop the "other" lake! Join us for a ride on trails and roads from Kenmore to Issaquah Coffee Company while looping Lake Sammamish.
Starting time and location: Ride starts at 10:00 am at Log Boom Park in Kenmore, where there is a restroom.
Parking: There is a four hour parking restriction in the Park. If you are concerned about exceeding the time limit you may park on NE 175th St east of the entrance to the park.
Pace: This is a VIGOROUS-paced ride, around 19mph on the flats. When on multi-use trails we will observe the trail speed limit.
We will be riding the same route as the brisk and moderate MUMPS group. Riders may choose to start with one group and drop back (or move up) to find a pace that is appropriate; you may register online for more than one pace group if you might use that option.
We will occasionally pause briefly to regroup, but may not wait for riders substantially off group pace; be prepared to finish with the brisk or moderate group in that case. 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.
Route: The planned route/cue sheet is at the link below.
Restrooms: There are planned restroom stops at 60 Acres Soccer Fields (mile 9.6 and 40.6) and at the food stop (mile 25.7).
Food: The food stop is brief (about 25 min.). Bring nutrition and hydration for use on the roll.
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.
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. 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: Riders should ready to ride 10 minutes before the start time to participate in the safety talk.
Pre-registration: Please register in advance by clicking the red Register Now button at the top of this page at least two hours pre ride start (this saves time at the start and enables the leader to email you in case of changes). You can also register manually at the start.
