**CANCELLED** Warm-up #1 for Climbing Hills Everywhere in Winter (CHEW)
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
This 25.5-mile ride with 1,915 feet of climbing at a Moderate pace (14-16 p.m. on the flats) is the start of an informal hill training series on Sundays in December, leading up to the start of CHEW training series in January. The December rides will get longer and feature more climbing on progressive Sundays.
If you are considering riding or leading CHEW, these warm-up rides are intended to help get you ready. They go through some nice areas of Snohomish County and may take you up and down some hills and through some neighborhoods that are new to you.
Let's meet at the northeast corner of the Ash Way Park & Ride and ready to ride at 9:55 a.m. We will start with a required safety briefing, and roll out when that's done. If you miss the briefing you will not be able to ride with the group.
We will climb and descend hills at our own pace, and our goal will be to regroup occasionally.
Restrooms are not available at the start. We will make a bathroom stop at Lynndale Park at mile point 6.8. Drinking water is not available at the start or the park. Please, arrive with enough water or hydration mix for the entire ride. If you think you will need a snack, bring it with you. This route does not include a food stop.
Bring 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 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.
