Ride Description: 

We start at the Newport Hills Park & Ride (exit 9 off 405) and head towards Renton. We'll stop at Coulon Park for a quick bathroom break before heading to the flat, Green River Trail toward Alki Beach where we'll stop at Starbuck's for a coffee break.  Then, we'll head around the waterfront, through the International District towards the Mountain to Sound Greenway Trail, across I-90 bridge and Mercer Island to return to Bellevue.  The first 2/3 of the ride is flat as a pancake.  This is a friendly ride and we'll stay together.  When on mixed use trails, we will maintain the 15mph speed limit.

Please RSVP by clicking on the red Register Now button at the top of this page.  Then put a checkmark in the waiver release box, complete the Emergency Contact Number, and click on Save.  By doing this you will save time at the ride start.  Note that this RSVP requires a Cascade Bicycle Club account.  If you don't have one and/or don't want one, come to the ride anyway and just sign the waiver/attendee sheet.  All are welcome.  

If weather conditions meet the cancel criteria on the day of the ride, I will post a ride-cancelled notice in Comments, below, two hours prior.  Ice or snow also cancel.  Please check here before leaving for the ride.  

Please arrive 20 minutes prior to the ride start to ready your bike and hear the safety briefing.  If wet weather, please be courteous to other riders by having fenders on your bike (preferably extra long with a buddy/mud flap).
