Ride Description: 

A mostly flat social ramble in the rural Snoqualmie River Valley, with a short stop for refreshment at Starbucks in Carnation on the way back.  We'll go at about 15-16 mph on the flats when there is no wind, and there will be occasional pauses for scenery and agricultural activities of interest.  Also, please note that the rains have brought Flood Watch notices for local rivers, including the Snoqualmie.  If we encounter road closures due to high water we will find alternate routes but may not achieve our intended mileage.  Just sayin'.  

Porta-pot (quality always in question) but no water at the start.  Pit toilet at Chinook Bend Park/Mile 11.4.  Restroom and water on the return leg at Carnation/Mile 22.7.  A RideWithGPS route map and cue sheet are at the Link, below.  If you need a cue sheet, please print one.  Electric-assist bikes welcome.  

It can be a long way to Fall City.  Please plan your trip to be ready to ride 10 minutes before start time so we can do the safety briefing and get on the road.  Bring ID; spare tube, tools, pump, patch kit, and skills to fix flats; and a phone and a plan for rescue if your bike fails.  If roads are wet, roostertails from bare tires are a safety and comfort issue for other riders.  Unless the geometry of your bike won't allow, fenders with long mudflaps are strongly recommended.   

Please RSVP by clicking on the red "Register Now" button under the ride title above.  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 will not be answered on the morning of the ride and its voicemail will not be checked.  If weather conditions meet the "Showers cancel" criterion, I will post a ride-cancelled note in Comments, below, at least 2 hours prior and not go to the start.  High winds or other severe weather also may cancel.  Please check here before going leaving home.
