MUMPS: Do The Lake, Clockwise (Brisk)
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
We’ll ride the Lake Washington loop route clockwise from Log Boom. There is a four hour parking restriction in the Park. If you are concerned about exceeding the time limit you may park on NE 175th St before the entrance to the park.
This is a brisk paced ride so be prepared for 18 mph on the flats. Riders are welcome to climb the hills at their own pace and regroup safely at the top. When on multi-use trails we will slow to observe the trail speed limit.
We’ll start toward Juanita with the warm-up at the 1.1 mile mark and continue to Kirkland stopping at Marina Park. From Kirkland we continue south to Bellevue then toward Renton with a stop at Coulon Park before circling the southern tip of Lk. WA and Boeing in Renton turning north to Seward Park along Lk WA to our final stop at the Leschi Starbucks for about 20 min. Our final section will take us by the Arboretum and behind UW Stadium then the Burke Gilman trail back to Log Boom.
Contact the ride leader if you plan to join the group at a point other than the starting location (in case we change the route). Depending on weather and mood of the group, the route may be shortened to cross the lake on I-90 trail or the WA 520 trail.
Bring snacks. There are 3 planned restroom stops, but only a 20 min stop at Starbucks..
Cancellation: Forecast for rain, snow, ice/frost or other unsafe riding conditions will be cause for cancellation, in which case the ride leader will not be at the start at Log Boom Park. The cancellation will be posted (in Comments, below) at least 2 hours before the start.
If rain is expected or the roads are wet, please be considerate of other riders' comfort and safety by using full fenders that extend at/below the wheel hub. You may still ride with us without them, but if you are spraying other riders you will need to drop to the back of the group.
Please come with the equipment and know-how to take care of your own flats and mechanicals or with a plan for getting back to the start if your bike won't take you there. If you have a problem the group will stop briefly to make sure you will be OK on your own.
