Ride Description: 

Explore the lakes, parks and neighborhoods of Sammamish on mostly quiet back roads. The Sammamish Plateau being what it is, we will have two climbs to warm us up, the first on Louis Thompson Rd and the second, on 216th Ave NE. Riders can take these at their own pace as we will regroup at the top. We will have rest stops at beautiful Pine Lake and Beaver Lake Parks. Our lunch stop will be at Evergreens at Sammamish Highlands. If we get lucky with the weather, we will score some lovely mountain views. 

Start location is at the East Lake Sammamish Trailhead behind Whole Foods. There is a sanican but no water at the start. Water and restrooms will be available at parks along the route. Please arrive in time for safety briefing 10 minutes before start time of 10 am. Bring money for lunch at Evergreens (other food options available, including Starbucks). Lunch is at mile 24, so bring snacks to hold you over. Worsening weather conditions during the ride could amend the route. 

Steady rain, frosty pavement, ice or snow will cancel. In this event, I will post a cancellation notice by 8 am on ride day in the comments section of this posting and then will not be at the start. Please be sure to check the comments section before you drive to the ride start. 

If you have a Cascade account you may register online up until 8 am on ride day by clicking the register button at the top of this posting.  If your plans change you do not need to unregister.  You may also register at the ride start.

Good morning, all! Sadly, the weather is not cooperating this morning and steady rain fills the forecast for the next several hours. I will attempt to repost this ride for tomorrow (Wednesday), which the weatherman is promising to be much drier.
