Ride Description: 

This is a variation of the famous Red Barn ride with a couple of twists including a predominate BLUE BARN.  A mostly flat social ramble in the rural Snoqualmie River Valley with a stop for refreshment at Starbucks in Carnation on the way back.  Pace will be about 15-16 mph on the flats when there is no wind.

Porta-pot (quality always in question) but no water at the start.  Pit toilet at Chinook Bend Park at mile11.4.  Restroom and water on the return leg at Carnation at mile 23.  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, rooster tails from bare tires are a safety issue for other riders.  Fenders with long mudflaps are encouraged.    

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.    

If weather conditions meet the "Showers cancel" criterion, I will post a ride-canceled note in Comments below at least 2 hours prior and not go to the start.  Please check here before leaving for the ride.      


The club has issued new guidelines related to COVID-19 at the link above. Please do not plan to ride if you have a fever, cough, difficulty breathing or other cold or flu-like symptoms, or have other risk factors.

Also there is no water at the start and limited opportunities for hand washing on the route. I would highly recommend all riders carry hand sanitizer or wipes at all times and use as appropriate.

Thanks for your cooperation.
