Ride Description: 

Join us for a ride from the Maple Valley Park & Ride on a Brisk pace (16-18 mph), 42 mile route, along scenic rolling terrain.  The route will take us through rural Maple Valley, Ravensdale, Black Diamond, Auburn and Covington before returning to the start.

Please arrive at the start with enough time to prepare to ride.  The mandatory safety brief will start at 9:25 and we will roll out promptly at 9:30.

We will climb and descend hills at our own pace, and our goal will be to regroup as necessary. We'll also limit our speed on any multi-use paths to the legal maximum (usually 15 MPH).

Restrooms are NOT available at the start. We will stop along the way for a restroom break at mile 15. There is another restroom opportunity at mile 24 if necessary.  Stops are for restroom use only.  There will not be food stop so consider bringing something you can eat during the short breaks.

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

Weather at the start is looking favorable but showers might be moving in just before noon.  Come prepped for mid ride showers (jacket, fenders, etc.).  There are a couple of places where we can shorten the ride if it gets too awful but we'll see how it goes.
