MUMPS: Clockwise Lake Loop with Variations (Moderate)
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Join us for a Lake Washington clockwise loop route with a variation into Shoreline and a descent on Perkins Way just before the finish. This route has more climbing than most lake loops, but we'll regroup at the top of hills. We'll climb and descend Juanita Drive early in the route, then proceed through Kirkland, Bellevue and Renton, the U district, and trail and roads up into Shoreline before the final descent.
Starting time and location: Ride starts at 10:00 am at Log Boom Park in Kenmore, where there are restrooms & water.
Parking: Please do not park in the Log Boom parking lot; use the on-street parking on NE 175th Street just east of the park.
Pace: The MUMPS series offers several paces. Riders are welcome change pace groups during the ride.
Navigation: The planned route/cue sheet is at the link below. The goal is to stay together via regrouping as necessary, but we won’t be able to wait long for anyone substantially off the pace. Please bring navigation aids in case you need to finish on your own, as the ride becomes self-led for those ahead of or behind the group.
Restrooms:There are planned restroom stops at Marina Park (mile 8.5), Coulon Park (mile 21), at the food stop (mile 30), and an option to stop @ Matthews Beach (mile 43.3).
Food: There is a brief food stop (about 20 min.) at Third Place Books. Please bring snacks and water if you want additional nutrition and hydration along the way.individual)
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: Be prepared with the equipment and know-how to take care of your own flats and mechanicals, and 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 be at the start and ready to ride at least 15 minutes prior to ride start time, to participate in the pre-ride briefing and safety talk. Ride rolls out at 10:00.
Pre-registration: Please register at least two hours in advance by clicking the red "Register Now" button at the top of this page, to save time at the start (and enable the leader to email you in case of changes/cancellation).
You'll need to open a "basic" Cascade Bicycle Club account (at no charge) to pre-register. You don't need to un-register if you can't make it to the ride. If you are unable to pre-register in time, you can sign up at the start.
Hope you can join us!
