Ride Description: 

Let's do lunch! We'll ride out of Bothell Ski & Bike traveling from Kenmore through Lynnwood to Edmonds where we'll have lunch at the Red Twig Cafe (about the 16 mile mark). Our stop will be about 20 - 30 minutes depending on the size of our group and food ordered.

If you like climbing or want to improve your climbing this ride is for you. The ride to Edmonds has so a good share of hills sprinkled along the route, but they are pretty moderate with breaks here and there and then a fun downhill into Edmonds. Our return from Edmonds includes the climb out via Woodway as well as Innis Arden. Woodway is about one mile and fairly moderate, while Innis Arden has some significant grades at times, also about a mile in length. We'll have a reprieve on the Interurban Trail and a nice downhill back into Kenmore.

We'll maintain a moderate pace (14-16 mph) on the flats w/o the benefit or hinderance of wind, slower on the uphills, faster on the downhills. This is a stay together ride, regrouping as necessary at the top of hills so please climb at your own pace.

Riders should bring tools and knowledge to repair flats and please have a backup plan for any mechanical that may occur. It happens!

Fenders are a must this time of year unless it is bone dry on the roads. This is for the comfort of your fellow riders as well as yourself. No fenders means you are happy to ride in the back.

Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes early in order to prepare yourself and your bike prior to the safety briefing. Ride starts promptly at 10:00. 

Restrooms available at the start.

Parking: Please park in the spaces on the west side of the lot so that we do not impede Bothell Bike's customers.

Registration:To save time at the start, please register for the ride by clicking on red Register Now button. You do not need a CBC account in order to register, but it does speed up the process. There is no need to unregister should you find you are no longer able to ride.

Cancellation: Ride will be cancelled for steady rain, dangerous road surface such as frost or ice, or below freezing temperatures. Should weather conditions call for a cancellation day of ride, a cancellation notice will be posted two hours prior. If weather is questionable please check Meetup or CBC ride listing before leaving at the start. Cancellations or changes will be posted in the comment section. Leader will not be at start if weather cancels prior to meeting time.

Hi Pam,

Is there parking in front of the Bothell Ski and Bike ?

Hi Al,

Yes, there is. Please park in the spots on the west side of the lot (side furthest from the shop). You'll see my white Outback there. The weather looks like it will cooperate :).
