Ride Description: 

Let's ride that ol' Snoqualmie Valley Trail! From Carnation, it is a very slight climb as we ride south. Trail surface is hard-packed dirt. I'll be on a gravel bike, but this can be ridden on a regular road bike with an adventurous mindset. We'll drop down Tokul road into Snoqualmie for coffee/pastries/etc. Then back to the trail and return the way we came. Faster this time, cuz it's downhill.

Oh, let's not forget the required info...

  • Join us for a ride from CARNATION on a 24.6 mile route at STEADY 14mph!
  • Let's meet at the NICK LOUTSIS PARK at 8:50 for our pre-ride safety briefing, with a departure at 9:00.
  • There's just one notable hill, up Tokul road to the trail on the way back. We will climb and descend it at our own pace, regrouping at the TOP/BOTTOM.
  • Portable restrooms MAY BE available at the start. There was one there last time I was here, but hey it's portable, so it might have disappeared.
  • We’ll stop for coffee in SNOQUALMIE at mile 11.72.
  • The club appreciates if you pre-register by clicking the red "Register Now" button above. There is no need to unregister if you decide not to ride.
  • Bring a spare tube and tools to fix a flat. There aren't any bike shops on the trail, so you're on your own here, y'know.
  • Don't worry about fenders. If the trail is wet, we aren't riding. That leads me to...
  • If weather conditions meet the weather cancellation criterion listed above or if there are unforeseen hazardous riding conditions, the Ride Leader will post a ride-canceled note in the Comments section below at least two hours prior to the start and Ride Leader(s) will not be at the start location.
  • We hope you can join us!
