Ride Description: 

No cue sheet needed

This is a simple ~47 mile ride to Snohomish and back on the Centennial Trail (mostly).  Our goal will be to stay together. We will limit speed to 15mph when on multi-use paths. We might limit to Arlington to Lake Stevens and back for 30 miles if it is too cold. Bring adequate water and nutrition for a 3hr ride though we will have a chance to stop at the halfway point.  Be prepared for weather changes.  Please check your tires and bike condition before leaving home. Bring at least 2 new tubes, tire levers, a patch kit, and a pump or CO2 cartridges.

Registration: Your registration on the Cascade Bicycle Club's website is much appreciated. Sign in to your (free) account, then register. 

Expectations (important, please read!): Arrive at least 10 minutes before the start of the ride to be part of the safety briefing. S.M.A.R.T. riding is the standard and all riders are held accountable for doing their best to adhere to these; we want to be ambassadors of the bike community in Snohomish County and be safe! Front and rear lights are highly recommended! Riders should be able to maintain the pace. Riders have to be independent when they have a flat and/or mechanical though we will stop together and help if possible. Please print a cue sheet in case you get separated from the group. All riders are responsible to promote a great experience by having a positive attitude, having fenders when the roads are wet or rain is in the forecast, enjoying the beauty we are surrounded by and just by having fun! Rain or other unsafe conditions cancels the ride. If the ride is canceled by 08:00 am, it will be posted in the comment section. 

Check for Route updates the day before ride.

Comments

As of Thursday, there is still patchy snow on the Trail in places near Lake Stevens (with narrow tracks to get by) so route will most likely be shortened though we can decide at end whether to ride north to add some miles.
