Ride Description: 

Ride up the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River, with a warm-up circuit of Tokul along the outbound leg.  Great scenery and rural roads.   

There are restrooms with water at the start, and pit toilets/no water at the Middle Fork Trailhead turn-around point/Mile 25.  We can stop at the North Bend QFC/Mile 10 to top up water bottles on the outbound leg.  It can be a long way to Snoqualmie, so please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early so that you can get yourself ready, sign the waiver, and listen to the S.M.A.R.T. briefing. This allows us to have an on-time departure.  Please note that once we get on the Middle Fork Road at approximately Mile 14, there is a more or less constant but shallow climb until the the Trailhead turn-around/Mile 25. 

A Ride With GPS route map and cue sheet are at the link.  If you want a cue sheet, please print one.  Bring ID; spare tube, tools, pump, patch kit, and skills to fix flats; and a phone and a plan for rescue if your bike fails.  Note that cell coverage in the Middle Fork valley can be spotty.  

Please RSVP by clicking on the red Register Now button at the top of this page.  I will print the waiver at 7 AM on ride day.  If you decide to come after that time, you can sign in on the waiver before we start.  

The listed phone number won't be answered on the morning of the ride.  If the weather meets the showers-cancel threshold, I will post a cancellation notice in the Comments block below at least two hours prior and not go to the start.
