Ride Description: 

This is a nice route featuring some climbing, quiet neighborhoods and fun descents. We start out at 200 Mill Ave S, head out onto Park Avenue and take an optional break at Gene Coulon Park. Our first climb is up Lincoln Avenue/May Creek Park Drive. A few rolling hills and one descent later it's up everyone's favorite hill, 196th.  A quick break at Petrovitsky Park and then the last few miles through some quiet residential areas, prior to a last descent  into downtown Renton. In the event of damp weather, your use of fenders with mud flaps is greatly appreciated. Please arrive early so you can get ready to ride and attend the safety briefing.

If weather conditions meet the cancel criteria on the day of the ride, I will post a ride-canceled notice in Comments, below, two hours prior, and I will not be at the start.  Ice or snow also cancel.  Please check here before leaving for the ride.  

Comments

This will be a "Shake The Rust Off" mentor ride for returning Ride Leader Brent Knudson.

As of 16 March, Cascade Bicycle Club and the Rides Committee have decided to suspend Free Group Rides through the end of March and reevaluate the situation surrounding the coronavirus at that time.

Bicycling is still a great way to exercise and boost your immune system during this time of public health advisory. We encourage you to find a way to continue to ride your bike in a responsible and safe way during the upcoming weeks.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these difficult times. We look forward to riding as a group again soon. Stay safe and healthy.
