Ride Description: 

Join the Seattle Cycle Sirens (formerly known as Team LUNA Chix – Seattle Cycle) for a women’s ride around beautiful Mercer Island!  The Seattle Cycle Sirens (SCS) mission is to encourage women of all abilities to get out and ride!  Hear the call of the road... your siren for fun!  

The Ride Leader will be leading a Moderate paced ride (14-16 mph on the flats with no headwinds or tailwinds).  Those who wish to ride at a faster pace are welcome to do so, but it will then become a self-paced ride for them.  Slower riders are also welcome to take the route at their own pace as this is a NO-DROP ride and we will regroup as needed along the way.  This ride is about 14 miles long with 800 feet of elevation over fun, rolling hills.

The ride will begin at 6:30 pm (in the South Parking Lot of Luther Burbank Park), so please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early to ready your bike, sign the waiver and participate in the SMART safety briefing.  There is a restroom near the meeting location.

Riders are expected to have the following with them: water, a spare tube, a pump and other tools to change a flat tire.  (As the season progress and the light dwindles riders should also bring a red blinking tail light and a white front light.)

Comments

Hi everyone - we're soooo looking forward to our ride around Mercer Island tomorrow night.  This will be our last Mercer Island weekday ride until next spring when the days are longer.  

Please note that sunset is approximately 7:15 tomorrow and we'll be rolling at 6:15.  We're planning a quick dessert stop at the home of our of our favorite ride leaders and so that means we'll be getting back to Luthur Burbank park after it is dark. For that reason it's MANDATORY this week that you have a white front light and a blinking tail light which are sufficient for seeing and being seen by others on the road.
