Ride Description: 

We are pleased to announce Cycling Out Of Sumner (COOS) will be running a spring training series for 2021 with three paces offered (Steady 12 - 14 mph, Moderate 14 -16 mph, Brisk 16 - 18 mph)

COOS will run for thirteen Saturdays, from April 3rd through June 26th. COOS is a training series to build endurance and strength. The rides will incrementally increase in distance, leading up to a 100 mile century. All paces will use a common route each week.

For ride #9:  A dam ride, Mud Mountain Dam that is. We’ll head out to Orting, up the gentle incline of the Foothills trail to South Prairie and on to Buckley. We leave Buckley on a short stretch of Hwy 410 connecting to Mud Mountain Rd which will take us to the Dam. This section includes a 2-mile climb where you will be surrounded by trees, birds chirping and very few cars. At the Dam will be a short restroom break. Heading back down the hill you just climbed, we turn north and enjoy the sights and smells of the Enumclaw plateau farmland. Don't miss the Mt. Peak Alpaca farm on 284th and if the weather cooperates a view of Mt. Rainier will be waiting to greet us as we make a left on 456th on our way to a mid-point stop for coffee and pie.  

Stops: Restrooms at the start,  mile 10(opt), 18, 36(lunch stop), 55

If you are unable to sustain the pace, you are encouraged to drop to the slower pace if available.

Ride Leaders will manually check riders in at the start location, which means that it is very important that riders arrive with adequate time. We are asking everyone to arrive at least 15 minutes early so that you can get yourself ready and listen to the pre-ride briefing and SMART talk. This allows us to have an on-time departure and proper sequencing of all the pace subgroups. Please plan accordingly. 

New riders, we are very happy to have you with us.  Please read the New Rider link, above, and keep in mind that a helmet is required for all Cascade rides. 

Riders should be able to sustain the pace, carry nutrition/water, and have the know-how and equipment to fix a flat tire.  Everyone should carry a phone to call for assistance if needed. We will regroup after climbs and as needed. We will observe posted speed limits on multi-use paths.

Be considerate and have full fenders including mud flaps if roads are wet or a prediction of rain is in the forecast. If you don't have fenders, you may be asked to ride at the rear of the group.

A route map and cue sheet are on the RideWithGPS link, below.  If you want a cue sheet please print and bring it.  The ride leader will not have extra copies.

Note: If weather conditions meet the weather cancellation criterion listed above or if there are unforeseen hazardous riding conditions or other unexpected events, 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.
