Starting at South Bellevue Park and Ride, we will head clockwise around Mercer Island and stop toward the end of the ride at Starbucks off of Island Crest Way before returning back to the Park and Ride. The Mercer Island loop is a classic ride in our area! This is a largely stay together ride, with frequent regroups, at a steady (12-14 mph) pace. The draft route and cue sheets can be found at: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/1874950 We will be riding at the lower end of the Steady pace and will emphasize the social aspects of the ride. We'll have options at the end to extend the ride if riders are interested. Riders should be able to sustain a steady pace, read a cue sheet, change a flat, and have a positive attitude in case it rains on us during the ride (it is November after all!) Faster riders are welcome to join and charge ahead but for them the ride becomes self-paced and self-guided. Printed cue sheets will be available at the start and riders can email the Ride Leader by the preceding Friday noon for the any final updates for the route cue sheet pdf and map url.
