Ride Description: 

This week the regular Tuesday TREATS group heads south for one of my favorite south King County routes. This is one of the first routes I learned from now retired ride leader Susan Mokler. There are plenty of hills but we will regroup at the top of major hills.   From the Renton Community Center we head out the lovely Cedar River trail to Maple Valley then follow quiet backroads to Ravensdale. We then continue through Maple Valley for a lunch stop at Lake Wilderness Village Starbucks/QFC (mile 30). Our return will be via Sweeny Rd/196th for a thrilling descent to the Cedar River then some fast fun downhill rollers on beautiful Jones Road.  Water and restrooms at the start, bring 2 water bottles, pocket snacks and money for lunch. 

Please arrive in time to prepare your bike, use the restroom and be ready to hear the ride safety briefing at 9:50 as we will depart promptly at 10am 

In the event of showers or worse the ride leader will not be at the start but will post a cancellation notice in the comments section of this posting by 730am on the day of the ride.  It is always advisable to check the ride comments before you drive to the start of a ride. Rain during the ride could amend the route.
