MUMPS: Snohomish Bakery (Steady)
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
This week MUMPS rides to the famous Snohomish bakery. Outbound we will ride Seattle Hill road and various side roads, ending up with some great spinning on Lowell Larimer Road and Lowell Snohomish River Road. We will return via Broadway through Maltby and Woodinville.
Start Time & Location: We'll meet at Log Boom Park, where restrooms are available. Depending on which MUMPS pace groups have rides listed this Monday, Steady pace will gather near the restrooms, Brisk will meet near the edge of the parking lot, and Moderate in the middle (between the other groups)
Please be there, ready to ride, at the time noted above. We will start with the 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.
Parking: Please do not park in the Log Boom parking lot; use the on-street parking on NE 175thSt., just east of the park.
Pace: The MUMPS series offers multiple paces. Riders are welcome change pace groups during the ride (but see "IMPORTANT" paragraph below). We'll limit our speed on any multi-use paths to the legal maximum (typically 15 MPH).
Navigation: The planned route/cue sheet is at the link below. The goal is to stay together via regrouping as necessary, but we won’t be able to wait long for anyone substantially off the pace. Please bring navigation aids in case you need to finish on your own, as the ride becomes self-led for those ahead of or behind the group.
Restrooms: There are planned restroom stops at mile 15.6 and 35.7 in addition to the restroom at the food stop @ mile 27.9.
Food: The food stop is brief (about 20-25 min.). NOTE: food delivery can be slow at Snohomish Bakery if any prep is required (items straight from the pastry case and coffee are usually quick enough). Ask about prep/delivery time before ordering!
Cancellation: 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.
IMPORTANT: Each ride leader will make their own weather cancellation decisions independently, so one pace group may cancel while another rides, and one group may take a shortcut, while another may not. An "on the roll" switch to a rain route is possible. Groups may ride different routes on the same day (half lake loop vs. full loop, for example.) These factors could change your options for moving between pace groups on the roll.
Repairs: Be prepared with the equipment and know-how to take care of your own flats and mechanicals, and a plan for getting back to the start if your bike won't take you there (ORCA card or someone to call). If you have a problem the group may stop briefly to make sure you will be OK on your own, but we will not wait for repairs to be completed.
Hope you can join us!
