Ride Description: 

We'll ride out of the Northshore Athletic Fields over Hollywood Hill, to Monroe (restroom) & Snohomish (~30 min lunch), then back through Woodinville returning to the start.

Please review the Ride With GPS elevation profile.

Pace: We'll maintain a brisk pace (16-18 mph) on the flats w/o the benefit or hindrance of wind, climbing/descending at rider's comfort, regrouping as necessary at the top and bottom of hills. Riders off the front or significantly off the group pace, should be prepared to finish the ride solo. For the well-being of the group, regroups will be no longer than 3 minutes.

Riders should bring tools & knowledge to repair flats/minor mechanicals (e.g., patch kit, spare tube, pump, multi-tool). Please have a backup plan should your bike become unrideable (someone to call for a rescue or an ORCA card). It happens!

Fenders: For the comfort & safety of your fellow riders as well as yourself, full fenders with long buddy flaps are greatly appreciated if it is wet or there is a chance of rain. No fenders means you are happy to ride in the back. Weather can change quickly this time of year, please be prepared for all conditions by having proper gear and equipment.

Though a food stop is planned, it is recommended that riders carry ample hydration & snacks in case of delays.

Start: Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early in order to prepare yourself and your bike prior to the safety briefing. Ride starts promptly at 10:00. 

A single porta-potty is at the start.

Parking: Please park toward the northwest corner, far left as you enter.

Registration: To save time at the start and so that the leader can properly prepare for the ride, please register for the ride by clicking on red Register Now button. There is no need to un-register should you find you are no longer able to ride.

Cancellation: Ride will be canceled for steady rain or other hazardous conditions. Should conditions call for a cancellation day of ride, a cancellation notice will be posted in the comment section below at least two hours prior and ride leader will not be at the start. If conditions are questionable please check the comments below before leaving for the start.
