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 #11:  We really start cranking the climbs on this one. Starting with Lea Hill in Auburn, we'll cross through Covington on our way to climb Tiger Mountain in Issaquah.  After working up an appetite on hills and rollers we hit our lunch stop (Ristrettos Coffee & Subway) at the 46-mile mark. From there it's a few more rolling hills before dropping back into the Auburn valley and cruising back to Sumner.

Stops: Restrooms at the start, mile 9, 25, 46 (Lunch), 62.

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.

Comments

DO NOT LEAVE BIKES or any other valuables UNATTENDED. Bikes have recently been stolen off car bike racks and locks broken off bikes locked to outdoor racks. There is plenty of foot traffic in the Fred Meyer Parking Lot, but still, thieves  can be quick. Have someone watch your bike if you are going somewhere where you can not watch it. Do not leave valuables in your car and do not leave anything that looks like it might be valuable visible through your car windows. 

Suddenly it's summer - probably don't need fenders tomorrow, but probably do need sunscreen (put some on before you leave for the ride and bring a travel size one with you to reapply) 

Also: WATER - tomorrow's ride calls for double water bottles, full camelback... . and don't forget to drink! Some electrolytes might be a good idea too....
