Ride Description: 

EAstside Ride The Hill DREAM rides are focused on helping strong riders get stronger by training on challenging hills. You can ride the hills at your own pace; we will regroup at the top. EARTHDREAM rides emphasize teamwork and cooperative riding in a way that is fun and encourages each rider to develop their cycling skills. The EAERTHDREAM group tends to ride hills at an aggressive pace and riders who don't have strong climbing skills may have trouble keeping the pace. We will attempt to accommodate people with a range of abilities, but riders who are significantly off the group pace should come prepared to finish the ride on their own if necessary.

This week's ride starts in Woodinville and picks up some great roads in Kirkland and Woodinville.  The route has some sizeable hills, but also some nice (flat) stretches that should make for some great riding.  This route stays relatively close to the start so that we have the option of returning early if we get too wet.

We will plan one stop for food/water at a Starbucks on Avondale. There are also water and restrooms at the start.

If you click the "Register Now" button on this page it saves you from having to sign in at the start of the ride.  Also, it gives me an idea of how many people to expect.

Rain cancels this ride.  If the ride is cancelled due to weather, a notice will be posted in the comments 2 hours prior and the ride leader will not be at the start.  Be sure to check back on this web site for weather updates if the weather is in doubt. Please bring long fenders if the roads are wet or rain is in the forecast.

Comments

The weather gods have looked favorably upon us and delayed the rain until after our ride.  I am going to bring my fast bike, but I'll throw a fender on the back for good measure.
