Ride Around Redmond
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Join us for a ride around Redmond at Steady pace (12-14mph).
Welcome to the Thanksgiving weekend. I hope everyone is having a great time with their loved ones. I am keeping this week's ride relatively short at 20 miles, with less than 1000 ft of elevation. Intent is to get a quick ride for a couple of hours to keep our ride fitness going. As always, we will start from the middle of the Lake Sammamish Trail parking lot (directly across the trail from Whole Foods).
Please be ready to ride at 9:30am. We will start with a required safety briefing, and roll out when that is done. If you miss the briefing, you will NOT be able to ride with the group.
While we do not have any water at the start of the ride, we do have a portable rest room. Since this is a short ride, ro water/ rest room stops has got planned. The Sammamish river trail has few portable rest stops along the route and we can have a stop if needed.
We will climb and descend hills at our own pace, and our goal will be to regroup at the top of each hill.
Bring a spare tube and tools to fix a flat, just in case.
Fenders - It is reasonable to expect wet riding conditions. Please have full fenders or you may be asked to ride at the rear of the group.
Note that Google Maps routing to the parking lot is a bit confused by the construction. The simplest route is to turn onto NE 70th St (by the Brown Bear Car Wash), then turn left just after the trail crossing.
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.
Hope to see you!
