If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
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.
Summer is well and truly here, and nothing honors the season like a bike ride in the sunshine. Let's meet on Burnett Ave S, north of Burnett Linear Park in Renton. Plan to arrive by 9:40 for our pre-ride safety briefing, so we can head out at 10:00. We'll ride at a Steady (12-14 mph) pace up the west side of Lake Washington, cross over to Bellevue via I-90 and Mercer Island, and cruise back down the lake via the Eastside Rail Corridor Trail and Lake Washington Blvd. We will climb and descend hills at our own pace, and we look to regroup at the top of each climb.
There aren't any restrooms available at the start. We'll stop at Seward Park (about mile 6.6) for a restroom break, and at Newcastle Beach Park on the other side of the lake.
Bring a spare tube and tools to fix a flat, just in case. Please have full fenders if the roads are wet, or you may be asked to ride at the rear of the group.
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.
We hope you can join us!
