Ride Description: 

Come and join us each Saturday morning in October, November and December for a ride. Stay fit, and enjoy the beauty and interesting sights in Snohomish County! The routes are about 40 miles each week. The steady and moderate paces ride a little less and the brisk pace rides a little more so that all have an equal ride effort.

How to find us? !

Today's Route "Fall Galore": There is a rest room at the start. The leaves might all be gone (this route was originally scheduled mid October), but there is still that fall smell while you and your riding buddies ride on roads that never seem to end on this classic rural route to Lake Roesiger. Unfortunately the Lake Roesiger store has been closed. Therefore we will stop at the Chevron at mile 28. This gas station/store is in the middle of nowhere and we need to help keep this business going. So you will need to purchase something to use the bathroom. 

Steady/Moderate route: 37.1 miles with 2,043 ft of elevation (per RWGPS) - Rest stop: Chevron at mile 28 (need to make a purchase to use the rest room)

Brisk route: 39.4 miles with 2,236 ft of elevation (per RWGPS) Rest stop: Chevron at mile 28 (need to make a purchase to use the rest room)

Expectations:

  • Please be ready to ride at least 10 minutes before the start of the ride to check off your name or sign the waiver and be part of the safety briefing.
  • If the roads are wet or there is rain in the forecast, please respect the rider behind you by having fenders that cover your tire to about 2 inches from the ground. If you have no fenders, you might be asked to ride in the back.
  • Riders have to be independent when they have a flat and/or mechanical. Bring a charged cellphone if possible.
  • Cue sheets are not provided at the start; print your own copy.
  • Your registration on this website is appreciated. Use the Register Now button at the top of this page.
  • Steady rain or other unsafe conditions cancels the ride. If the ride is canceled, it will be posted by 07:00 am in the comment section below. In that case the ride leaders will not be at the start.

Comments

Good news - At mile 21, the Lake Roesiger Store is supposed to open tomorrow, so we will move the rest stop to this iconic store. Due to the remoteness of this establishment, you do need to buy something if you want to use the restroom.

Brisk Route was corrected to 42 miles and 2,590 ft of elevation.

There is some moisture in the air this morning, but of the three websites reviewed, it doesn't appear very much. Therefore the ride is on. See you soon.
