Ride Description: 

A mostly rural Snohomish County loop from Lake Tye Park through Monroe, north past Lake Roesiger to Granite Falls, and back through Machias and Snohomish.  A few serious hills and many rollers.  Riders climb at their own pace.  Please be ready to ride 10 minutes before start time so we can have the safety talk and get on the road. 

There are free restrooms and water at the start and at Machias/Mile 44.3.  We will stop in Granite Falls at the IGA Store/Mile 30.7 where water and food are available for purchase.  

A Ride With GPS route map with cue sheet is at the link.  If you want a cue sheet, please print it.  Bring spare tube, tools, patch kit, pump, and skills to fix flats, and have a phone and a plan for rescue if your bike fails.  If roads are wet, roostertails from bare tires are a safety issue for other riders.  Fenders with long mudflaps show that you care. 

Please RSVP by clicking on the red "Register Now" button under the ride title above.  This will save time at the start.  NOTE: I will print the ride waiver at 7 AM on ride day.  It's not a problem if you decide after that time to ride but you'll need to sign in at the start.    

The listed phone number won't be answered on the morning of the ride and its voicemail will not be checked.  If weather conditions meet the Showers Cancel criteria, I will post a ride-cancelled notice in Comments, below, two hours prior and not go to the start.  Please check here before leaving for the ride.
