Ride Description: 

 

We'll ride clockwise towards Renton, over to Seward Park, and on to Leschi where we'll stop at the Starbucks for refreshments.  We'll then ride towards the U-District through the Washington Arboretum and onto the 520 Bridge Trail to Bellevue for our return.

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.

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.  Ice or snow also cancel.  Please check here before leaving for the ride.  

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.

Also there is no water at the start and limited opportunities for hand washing on the route. I would highly recommend all riders carry hand sanitizer or wipes at all times and use as appropriate.  Thanks for your cooperation.

Comments

It appears that the air quality will still be in the unhealthy range Saturday morning.  According to forecasts, it will not be cleared out until Sunday or even mid-next week.  If the air quality is still not in the normal range, the ride will be canceled.  Sadly, it is looking like rain as well.  

Sorry, everyone.  I need to cancel today's ride.  I worked outside a lot this week and am really feeling the effects of the smoke in my lungs.  Don't think riding today is a good idea.  Plus, it is raining here in Bellevue at the moment.
