Ride Description: 

We will leave Hogan Park (formerly Russell Road Park), riding the trail around the golf course and head south and east out the Green River Trail and some quiet roads, past Isaac Evans park and skirt downtown Auburn on our way up the hill and on to the Black Diamond Bakery for a bite to eat.  From there we will take our lunch legs south a bit more before turning west for the descent into the valley coming out by Flaming Geyser Park.  It is a flat cruise on Green Valley Road, back thru downtown Auburn and north of the Interurban and Green River Trails returning to the start.

There is a very short section of packed gravel/dirt after our stop at Black Diamond.  It is very rideable with care but so short that walking it is not a pain and we will regroup after.

Water, restrooms and ample parking available at Hogan Park.  RWGPS route and cue sheet link are below.  If you need a cue sheet, please print one.  

Please arrive early enough to unload your bike etc. and be prepared to leave at 10am sharp after the SMART briefing.

Please RSVP by clicking on the red "Register Now" button under the ride title above, then checking the box for "Waiver Signature" and filling in the contact information.  This will save us time at the start.  Note that the on-line RSVP requires a Cascade Bicycle Club account, which is easy to set up, but if you don't want one of those just come anyway and sign the hard-copy attendance/hold harmless sheet. 

The listed phone will not be answered after 8:00 on the morning of the ride.  If weather conditions meet the "Showers cancel" criterion, I will post a ride-cancelled note in Comments, below, at least 2 hours prior and not go to the start.  If the weather looks iffy, please check here before leaving for the ride
