Ride Description: 

Join us for a ride from Torguson Park in North Bend to the end of the paved Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road for a 31 mile route at a steady pace of 12-14 MPH!

This route meanders along the quiet, gently climbing Middle Fork Snoqualmie Road. Once a rugged dirt road, this has been paved up to our turnaround point. We will pass numerous trailheads, the Middle Fork Campground and abundant mountain and river views along the way. Fall should be in full swing on the higher slopes of the Cascade foothills. After walking our bikes across a bridge at the end of the pavement, we will picnic along the river before retracing our route.

Let's meet at the Torguson Park at 9:50 am for our pre-ride safety briefing, with a 10 am departure.

We will climb and descend hills at our own pace, and our goal will be to regroup frequently. 

Restrooms and water are available at the start. There are multiple primitive restrooms available at trailheads along the route. PLEASE NOTE: There is no potable water beyond the start location, so bring at least 2 bottles of water.

You are encouraged to 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, just in case. Please have full fenders if the roads are wet, or you may be asked to ride at the rear of the group.

Note: 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!

Comments

Forecast calls for 90% chance of rain by 10 am, so I will cancel this ride for today and hope for a better day in the future.
