Free Group Ride
TREATS: Lowell Riverfront Park/Snohomish/Everett Ride
Come and join us for a scenic rural ride along the river to Snohomish via Ebey Island to American Legion Park in Everett.
We will start at the Lowell Riverfront Trailhead. Lots of parking in the gravel parking lot. (This is next to, but different from Rotary Park and is not Lowell Park on 3rd Street. Bathrooms available at start, in Rotary Park a short distance from parking lot.) Stop in Everett at deli for lunch/coffee at about mile 17.
Be ready to ride at 10 AM. 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. The route is 25 miles and 765 feet of climbing. Steady pace is 12-14 mph on flat terrain. We will climb and descend hills at our own pace, and our goal will be to regroup occasionally. New riders are welcome and this would be great ride for new riders as distance is under 30 miles and there are few hills. There is some traffic in Everett.
Directions: North on I-5 into Everett, exit on 41st street, heading East. Right on 41st Street, immediate right on 3rd Street. After about a mile, follow flow of traffic, bearing left at fork, road becomes 2nd Street. Left on Lenora, downhill, cross tracks, parking lot on left.
Steady rain cancels. 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.
This ride is available for mentoring. Ride leader candidate should phone me a few days in advance and needs to know the route.
