SLOW Ride to Favorite Things of 2019
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Ride with Senior Ladies On Wheels (SLOW) - everyone of all ages and identities welcome - as long as you ride SLOW! On this ride we'll revisit some of Ride Leader Merlin Rainwater's favorite things of 2019: Great views, hidden treasures, surprising artworks, historical landmarks - Exact route will depend on the weather and who shows up, but expect around 10 miles. We'll stop somewhere along the way for treats. On these rides the slowest rider sets the pace - don't worry, we won't hurry! There's no shame in getting off your bike awhile to climb a hill or just to take in the scenery. Rain won't cancel - but may lead to a shorter ride.
This is Cascade Bicycle Club Free Group Ride. It's a social ride with experienced ride leaders to grow your confidence with group riding. It is free and open to everyone. The route consists of beautiful trails, a few low-traffic streets, and scenery.
"Easy Pace" is under 10 mph on flat surface without any headwind. Average walking speed is around 3 mph, so we will be about 3 times faster!. If you aren't sure about your pace, please join us anyway. We will help you find your way back if you need to return to the start early. Carrying ORCA card is another good option.
You should dress appropriately for the weather, but you do not need spandex or other specialized bike gear. All you need is a working bike and a helmet. If you haven't ridden your bike for quite some time, please do a ABC Check (link below) or take it to your local bike shop a few days prior to the ride date.
Please arrive 20 minutes before the published start time to ready your bike, check in and participate in the safety and ride briefing. We will go over hand signals and what we say during the ride to keep outselves safe.
