Mentored ride for Jessica Hall
Join us for a social 18.6-mile bike ride. We leave from the 15th Street (Auburn) Park N Ride and head north making our way to the Kent Station for a cup of coffee and pastry at Dilettante Mocha Café. We will be using trails along with some low traffic roads and one gentle incline. This ride is a stay together ride where you will learn bike safety, enjoy the outdoors and gain friendship. Join us!
"Leisurely pace" is 10-12 mph on the flat surface without any headwind. Average walking speed is around 3 mph, so we will be 3-4 times faster! If you are not sure about your pace, please join us anyway, but study the route and bring a printed cue sheet with you. We can help you read the cue sheet if you need to return to the start early.
You should dress appropriately for the weather, but you do not need spandex or other specialized bike gear. All you need is a working bike and a helmet. If you haven't ridden your bike for quite some time, please do an ABC Check (link below) or take it to your local bike shop a few days before the ride date.
Please arrive 30 minutes before the published start time to ready your bike, check in and participate in the safety and ride briefing. We will go over hand signals and what we say during the ride to keep ourselves safe.
