Ride Description: 

 

Join us for a ride from Newport Hills Park and Ride on a 45 mile route at a Moderate Pace  (12-14mpt)!  We will climb at our own pace and regroup at the top of each hill. 

This is a fun ride through Bellevue, Medina and Kirkland and Mercer Island with a stop at Starbucks in Kirkland.

Please note: During COVID-19 Phases 1.5 and 2, all Free Group Rides are limited to six total participants: the Ride Leader and five others. Registration for the ride (using the red “Register Now” button above) is REQUIRED to participate. If you decide not to ride, please unregister for this ride so that an additional spot will be made available to another.

Face coverings (for mouth and nose) are required when the group makes extended stops. Face coverings are recommended for the duration of the ride. Please bring personal hand sanitizer,  disinfecting wipes and tissues for use at rest stops.

Please RSVP by clicking on the red Register Now button at the top of this page.  Then put a checkmark in the waiver release box, complete the Emergency Contact Number, and click on Save.  By doing this you will save time at the ride start.  Note that this RSVP requires a Cascade Bicycle Club account. 

If weather conditions meet the cancel criteria on the day of the ride, I will post a ride-canceled notice in Comments, below, two hours prior.  Ice or snow also cancel.  Please check here before leaving for the ride.  

Please arrive 20 minutes prior to the ride start to ready your bike and hear the safety briefing.  If wet weather, please be courteous to other riders by having fenders on your bike (preferably extra long with a buddy/mud flap).

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.

Comments

This ride is now a Moderate (14-16mph) pace ride. If you have already registered and don't want to ride at that pace, please un-register. Thanks!

In order for everyone to get back to their families for the 4th of July gatherings, I'm shortening the route by removing Mercer Island from the end of the ride.  The ride will be 34 miles with 2161 feet of elevation.
