Ride Description: 

Please note: During COVID-19 Phases 1.5 and 2, all Free Group Rides are limited to six total participants: the Ride Leader and five others. Registration for the ride (using the red “Register Now” button above) is REQUIRED to participate. If you decide not to ride, please unregister for this ride so that an additional spot will be made available to another.

Face coverings (for mouth and nose) are required when the group makes extended stops. Face coverings are recommended for the duration of the ride. Please bring personal hand sanitizer,  disinfecting wipes and tissues for use at rest stops.

There may not be a bathroom at the start, but there are several along the way.

A stay together gravel ride from Rattlesnake Lake to Hyak via the Iron Horse Trail.  This trail is well packed gravel and appropriate for road bikes with 30cm+ tires, gravel and mountain bikes.  The pace will be adjusted for gravel riding and elevation.  The trail is fairly flat with a max of 1-2% grade.  This is an out and back ride.  There is not a food stop but we will take a 15-20 minute break just before the tunnel so bring your own refreshments.  We will not be riding through the tunnel.  The ride is quite beautiful with several waterfalls along the way.

If you register and change can not make it, please unregister to free up your spot.

Please arrive 20 minutes prior to the ride start to ready your bike and hear the safety briefing.  If wet weather, please be courteous to other riders by having fenders on your bike (preferably extra long with a buddy/mud flap).

The club has issued new guidelines related to COVID-19 at the link above. Please do not plan to ride if you have a fever, cough, difficulty breathing or other cold or flu-like symptoms, or have other risk factors.

The ride has us stopping at the tunnel - just confirming that we are not going through the tunnel as we will need lights otherwise
