Free Group Ride
Cedar River Trail Family Ride - Thursday
Join us for a beginner and family friendly ride from Renton's Ron Regis Park on a roughly 6 mile route at an easy pace (under 10 mph)!
This ride is perfect for riders who are just starting out, who have younger riders, who haven't been on a ride in a while, or are just looking for a relaxing and short ride. Parents or guardians of children and youth riding their own bikes: please read and conform to Cascade's policy (Parent & Guardian Information). Call ride leader Clifton for a 2-way communication at least a day in advance, to ensure this ride is a good fit. Parents must register every child and youth who plans to attend. A Parental Consent Form must also be completed, signed, and brought to the ride start.
We'll start at Ron Regis Park and head up the Cedar River Trail for around 3 miles. We will take a quick rest and water break, after that, we'll turn around and come back down the trail returning to our starting point.
Let's meet at the west side of Ron Regis (near the basketball court and porta potties) and please be ready to ride at 11:00 am. We will start with a required safety briefing including the S.M.A.R.T. talk and some hand-signals for any beginners with us. We'll roll out when that's done. If you miss the briefing, you will not be able to ride with the group.
Restrooms (porta-potties) will be available at the start, however no water is available, so be sure to bring fluids for yourself.
Our goal will be to stay together throughout the ride. If you need to leave the ride for any reason, please let the ride leader know.
Bring a spare tube and tools to fix a flat, just in case. As there is only one ride leader, I cannot stay behind to help fix a mechanical problem. Please have full fenders if the roads are wet.
Note: If weather involves steady/heavy rain, lightning, 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 will not be at the start location.
We hope you can join us! Email me if you have any questions.
