Ride Description: 

We'll ride the Lake Washington counter clockwise loop route.

Starting time and location: Ride starts at 10:00 am at Log Boom Park in Kenmore where there is a restroom.

Parking: 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.

Pace: This is a brisk paced ride. When on multi-use trails we will observe the trail speed limit.  We will regroup at major intersections and on hills. 

Variations to joining group and 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. If you pre-register you can meet us at the Leschi Starbucks, where we will be stopping for a short break, at about 11:15  or at any other point on the route, but we will not wait for anyone and you are at risk of a last minute route change.  

Restrooms:  There are 3 planned restroom stops:  Seward Park ( Mile 20), Coulon Park (mile 30) and Marina Park (mile 42).  

Food:  Bring snacks.  Leschi is the only planned opportunity to purchase food and that stop is early in the ride.

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 and the cancellation will be posted (in Comments, below) at least 2 hours before the start.

Fenders: Please be considerate of other riders' comfort and safety by using full fenders with long mud flaps if rain is expected or the roads are wet. 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.

Repairs: 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, but we will not wait for repairs to be completed.

Safety talk and on time-departure:  Riders should be at the start with ride-ready bikes and gear at least 10 minutes early for safety talk.

Pre-registration:  You can save time at the start by pre-registering here.  Make sure you are logged into your Cascade Bicycle Club account, click on REGISTER NOW, check the waiver box, and you're good to go. You don't have to un-register if you don't make it to the ride.

 

Comments

We will not stop at Leschi for a break.  No breaks other than restroom breaks are scheduled for brisk.

Quote from internet:

"You've probably seen the past tense form of “cancel” spelled two ways, especially if you live within the United States or read American literature. While American English favors the use of “canceled,” British English, Canadian English, and Australian English stick with “cancelled.” Neither spelling is wrong, but it does help to know when and where to use each one."

Whichever, snow and slush on the route and he ride is both cancelled and canceled.
