Weather Cancellation: 

Let's meet at the Sam Smith Park and please be ready to ride at  8:30 am.  I’ll start with a required safety briefing, and we’ll roll out when that's done.  We'll pick up riders at Enatai Beach Park (under east end of I-90 east channel bridge) at 9:00, then pick up riders at Tibbetts Park in Issaquah at 9:30.  

We'll climb Squak from Tibbetts, and then go out to May Valley.  We’ll climb Licorice Fern hill going thru May Valley, and then climb China Creek and Newcastle Golf.  We’ll finish off with 3 little bonus climbs on the Cougar climb, and then enjoy the Montreux descent.
There will be no specific food stop on this ride.  So please bring plenty of nutrition and two water bottles for such a long hilly ride.  

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.
