Meet the High Performance Cycling Team
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Interested in learning about Cascade's High Performance Cycling (HPC) Team? Meet at Sam Smith Park for a short discussion about the team. We'll ride counter-clockwise around the south end of Lake Washington, stop at Coulon Park in Renton. Atter Renton riders have the option to do a "hot lap" around Mercer Island, return to Seattle via the I-90 bridge, or head out to Issaquah for some bonus miles and hills and a coffee stop.
From the start to Renton we roll at 18 mph on the flats. After that, riders will have the option to go faster and the fastest group on the optional Mercer Island lap typically exceeds 23 mph.
