Ride Description: 

This is a social but challenging ride with experienced ride leaders to grow your confidence with group riding. It is free and open to everyone. The route consists of trails and bike-friendly streets with gradual climbs so you can practice shifting gears. Everyone will ride the hills at their own pace and we always regroup at the top and before any turns so you need not be concerned about being left behind.

We will start and finish at Burnett Linear Park in Downtown Renton located along Burnett Ave S between S. 4th St. and S 5th St. The route takes us along Kennydale via Lake Washington Blvd  N to Mercer Island, we will do a 10-mile loop around the island, then cross the I-90 bridge and onto Starbuck’s at Madison Park (mile 26) for a coffee and pastry break.  We’ll return along Lake Washington Blvd. S. to Seward Park and Rainier Ave S. No restroom at start location, the first restroom stop is at mile 2.5 Coulon Park.

You should dress appropriately for the weather and all you need is a working bike and a helmet. Please arrive 20 minutes before the published start time to ready your bike, check in and participate in the safety and ride briefing. We will go over hand signals and what we say during the ride to keep ourselves safe.
