Ride Description: 

Come join us in cycling the beautiful South Sound?  We’ll ride a large loop starting on the Cedar River Trail and adhere to 10mph speed limit where posted.  We'll have a midway food stop in Covington, and then return to our start point via the Soos Creek Trail through Kent.  This will be a leisurely paced group (10-12mph on the flats), and it is a pre-ride for the Ride Leaders.  That means we ask that you be patient, and that the leaders may stop occasionally to jot down notes and/or make corrections in the route.  Then, after the ride, please join us for a post-ride meal at the Jaguar Mexican Restaurant.  

Our start location is at the Renton Community Center.  Let’s meet in the Northeast corner next to the bathrooms.  The bathrooms at the start are usually open.  However, there are more facilities just a couple miles into the ride, and we can stop there if needed.  All riders should come equipped to deal with their own mechanical issues and bring enough snacks and water.  Waiting for mechanical issues will be at the discretion of the ride leader. Bring a spare tube and tools to fix a flat, some food/water and cash for our food stop.  Also, all riders are encouraged to have an Orca Card or a pick-up plan if needed.  Please have full fenders if the roads are wet, or you may be asked to ride at the rear of the group.

Please come early enough (no later than 9:40 a.m.) to ready yourself and your bike and listen to the ride briefing and S.M.A.R.T. safety talk.  We will roll out right at 10:00 am.  You are encouraged to pre-register by clicking the red "Register Now" button above. There is no need to unregister if you decide not to ride. 

Note: If weather conditions meet the weather cancellation criterion listed above or if there are unforeseen hazardous riding conditions, the Ride Leader will post a ride-canceled note in the Comments section below at least two hours prior to the start and Ride Leader(s) will not be at the start location.

Comments

Hi riders. I've made a decision to cancel the ride due to the ongoing rain and weather. Looks like tomorrow morning will also bring increased winds.Therefore, in the interest of safety, the ride is canceled. Enjoy your weekend, and hope to see you on another ride soon.
