We will observe current social distancing guidelines when off the bike, and strive to maintain at least 10-12ft separation between riders when on the bike.
Days in May in the Northwest, remains one of my favorite time of the year....let's go ride, if the weather's fine! Join me as I pedal and re-polish up that rhythmic cadence. We'll take it slow through an easier route from Lynnwood into Mountlake Terrace, Shoreline, Edmonds, Ballinger Trail, Everett, Mill Creek, Bothell. We then take some back roads to where we started. Let's see how far away we can go and incorporate some fun into this spin workout. No cue-sheet provided or available. Please register online by clicking on the red Register Now button at the top of this page.
Meet at Kohl's Lynnwood, south end parking lot.
Rest stop: Restrooms available at start and end of ride.
Expectations: PLEASE arrive at 9:45am or earlier to sign the waiver and hear the safety briefing. S.M.A.R.T. is the acronym we use for a safe and informed ride together. Ride leader personally uses Strava app and will briefly go through the routes summary prior to the start. We roll out promptly at 10am & be back at starting place by 12:30pm or 1pm the latest.
Front and rear lights are recommended. Everyone should be able to maintain the 12-14 Steady pace on flat terrain, faster on rollers and downhills! We will regroup at crossroads and intersections as needed. Riders have to be independent when they have a flat and/or mechanical issues.
If the weather turns sour beforehand, I will post ride cancellation approximately 2 hours and will not be at the starting place.
