Ride Description: 

A beautiful, hilly, forest route with a 1 mile climb (196th), a 2 mile climb (Tiger Mountain) and rollers through wooded terrain.  Jones Road looks like you're in Kentucky. Sweeny Road has sheep, pigs, alpacas, ducks, cows (all within fences), well not the ducks.  Lunch stop is at S'wiched (see link below for menu) at mile 14.8.  After lunch, we'll cruise through a Natural Area, and ride on a 0.4 mile section of hard-packed gravel trail over the Cedar River to Dorre Don.  There is a brief rest stop at Lake Francis Park (mile 23.5).  Tiger Mountain is one of the classic climbs in King County with gradually descending curves through inspiring forest.  Return is over Cedar Grove Rd then Cedar River Trail back to the start. Rain during the ride could alter the route. 

Water: Ron Regis Park at the start has a PortaPotty but no water.   Bring 2 full water bottles. 

Restrooms: Start, Lunch at S'wiched (mile 14.8), Lake Francis Park (mile 23.5), Tiger Mountain Country Store (mile 31.8)

Start: Please arrive and be ready by 9:50 am so we can review the route and SMART safety briefing before departing at 10 am.

Cancelation: If I cancel due to weather, I will do so before 8:00 am on ride day and write a note in the Comments section below.  If this occurs, I will not be at the start. It is always wise to check this posting if there is any uncertainty before driving to the start.

Preregister: Register online by clicking the red and white [Register Now] button at the top of this posting. You may also sign the waiver at the start.  If your plans change you do not need to unregister (mater of fact, you can't).

Cue Sheet:  Please print your own map and cue sheet from the RWGPS ink below. 

NOTE: If you would like to contact the Ride Leader, send a text including your name to 509-203-5772 rather than using the Comments section. You can also send an email the address above but email is checked less frequently.
