CTS Rides Again #3 - Cumberland Loop (Moderate)
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
CTS Rides Again is a series of five Sunday rides (July 13, 20, 27, and August 3 and 10) following the conclusion of 2014 CTS series to help riders prepare for the RSVP, RAW, and other challenging rides. This is the third ride of the series. We have chosen five of the best rides from the Cascade Training Series (CTS) series to ride again. We will have ride leaders for four different paces(Red/Leisurely, 10-12 mph on flats; Yellow/Steady, 12-14 mph on flats; Green/Moderate, 14-16 mph on flats; & Blue/Brisk,, 16-18 on flats) each Sunday.
These rides are not supported. We will provide short rest stops along the route, but please come prepared with your own food and beverages. Please email the Ride Director with any questions/concerns.
TODAY'S RIDE: This is a loop starting in Bellevue out to Cumberland and back. This is a long ride with a fair amount of elevation gain. Be sure to bring water and food on your bike.
TODAY'S REST STOPS: Squak Mtn (13.4); Ravensdale (28.9); Optional stop at Black Diamond Bakery (42.4); Lake Wilderness (51.4)
Please arrive 20 minutes early to ensure you are ready to roll at the posted time.
It is very helpful if you RSVP on MEETUP at least two days prior to each ride. This will allow us to secure additional ride leaders if a large number of riders wish to ride at a particular pace. This will also allow you to get updates if there is a possible cancellation and for group communications.

As customary for all Cascade rides, please make sure you wear a helmet and have necessary gear and knowledge to fix any flats you might get along the way. The group will not stop for flats or mechanicals, but our sweeps will ensure you have a cue sheet to continue the ride.
