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.
Join us on Chris Stewart's 2nd mentored ride! We'll start from Magnuson Park on a 30 mile route at steady pace, 12-14 mph. We'll cross Lake Washington on the 520 bridge, ride through Medina, Old Town in Bellevue and the Mercer Slough before returning on the 520 bridge.
Let's meet outside Cascade Headquarters at 9:45 a.m. for our pre-ride safety briefing, with a departure at 10:00 a.m. We will climb and descend hills at our own pace, and our goal will be to stay together. There's a porta-potty at the start, and restrooms at Medina Beach Park, about 9 miles on the route, where we will stop.
Cue sheets will not be provided. If you need a cue sheet or a map, please see the RWGPS link below.
Bring your own snacks, water, a spare tube and tools to fix a flat, just in case. Please have full fenders if the roads are wet, or you may be asked to ride at the rear of the group.
Note: If weather conditions meet the weather cancellation criterion listed above or if there are unforeseen hazardous riding conditions, the Ride Leader will post a ride-canceled note in the Comments section below at least two hours prior to the start and Ride Leader(s) will not be at the start location.
We hope you can join us!
