Ride Description: 

 MUMPS will loop the "other" lake! Join us for a ride on trails and roads from Kenmore to Issaquah Coffee Company while looping Lake Sammamish.

Starting time & location: Ride starts at 10:00 am at Log Boom Park in Kenmore, where there is a restroom & water.

Parking: Please do not park in the Log Boom parking lot; use the on-street parking on NE 175th St. just east of the park.

Pace: This is a MODERATE paced ride; 14-16mph on flat pavement without benefit or hindrance of wind; slower uphill and faster down. We will regroup as necessary at major intersections and on hills. When on multi-use trails we will observe the trail speed limit.

We will be using the same route as the brisk and vigorous MUMPS groups. Riders may choose to start with one group and drop back or move up to find a pace that is appropriate.

The goal is to stay together via regrouping as necessary, but please bring navigation aids in case you need to finish on your own. The ride becomes self-led for those ahead of or behind the group.

Restrooms: Planned restroom stops are at 60 Acres Soccer Fields (mile 9.6 and 40.6) and at the food stop (mile 25.7). 

Food: Food stop is brief (about 25 min.). Though a food stop is planned, It is recommended that riders bring ample hydration & snacks for the ride and in case of any delays.  

Cancellation: Forecast for rain or other 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: Please come with the equipment and know-how to take care of your own flats and mechanicals or with a plan for getting back to the start if your bike won't take you there. 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 & on time-departure:  As we plan to leave on time, please arrive at least 10-15 minutes early to prepare yourself and your bike prior to the ride briefing and safety talk.

Pre-registration:  Please register in advance by clicking the red Register Now button at the top of this page, as this saves time at the start and enables the leader to email you in case of changes (you'll need a Cascade Bicycle Club account, and starting one makes you a Basic-level member of the Club at no charge). No need to un-register if you can't make the ride. You still can register manually at the start if you miss registering prior to the ride.
