This ride is for cyclists interested in joining Cascade’s High Performance Cycling (HPC) Team. A description of the team can be found on the CBC HPC Team webpage (http://www.cascade.org/EandR/Ride_HPC.cfm), or at www.cycleu.com. After a discussion about the team we’ll go for a ride. The route will depend on weather and turnout. If it's nice, we'll ride across or around Mercer Island and around the south end of Lake Washington at approximately 18 mph on the flats. If there is interest, there may be optional mileage and/or some team members may be available to meet for a post-ride coffee.
