Ride Description: 

This is a Women's Ride.  If you are looking for a welcoming group of women who are here to encourage each other while having fun and developing new friendships, then this is the group for you! We invite anyone who identifies themselves as a woman to experience the fun of getting out on your bike with other like-minded women, get in some exercise and good conversation, while enjoying the ride with other ladies who share the passion of cycling. This is a group ride for any woman who is looking for a positive, fun, and encouraging group. If it's your first group ride, we welcome you and would love to have your join us! You can do this! While no one will be turned away from participation in a Cascade Free Group Ride, this ride is intended to create a safe and welcoming space for women. 

RSVP: Please RSVP by clicking on the red Register Now  button at the top of this page to save time at ride start, and so that we can ensure we have adequate assistance for the group. You can also register at the ride start. If you sign up on-line but decide not to ride, no worries, and we'll see you next time. Thank you!

PACE: The listed pace is based on the flats, with no headwind, and at your own pace up hills. We will  regroup at the top of hills. Ladies, you don't have to be a fast climber to join in this group, this is not a race! We are here to encourage and empower one another to get stronger. As long as you are comfortable with the posted pace on the flats, don't worry about the rest. We will wait at the top of climbs to give all riders a chance to catch a breath before continuing. When using designated bicycle trails we will observe the posted speed limit. 

START LOCATION & PARKING: There are restrooms and a coffee shop inside The Hangar. The city permits us to park anywhere in the large parking lot for The Hangar customers. There is also street parking available.

ROUTE: See link below for a RideWithGPS downloadable route map with printable cue sheet. If you want a cue sheet, please print one using the route link as copies will not be available at the ride start. This route will take us from Kenmore to Mill Creek where we'll stop at Starbucks (mile 16) and back.

MECHANICALS: Group will stop for flats. Bring tools and knowledge to repair flats, and a plan, i.e. Orca card, or a friend/Uber to call you have a serious mechanical failure or choose to not repair your flat roadside.

SAFETY: Mirrors, tail lights and head lights are highly recommended by the ride leader to keep yourself and your riding buddies safe and seen. Fenders and buddy flaps are strongly recommended if rain is in the forecast.

RIDE CANCELLATION: In the event of a weather cancellation a notice will be posted in the comments on this page at least two hours before the ride start and ride leader will not be at the ride start location.
