Newport Hills - Beacon Hill - Mercer Island Loop
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
We will start our ride at Newport Hills Park and Ride (North end of lot) and ride towards Renton. There's no bathroom at the start so we will stop at Coulon Park for relief (mile 3) before heading around the south end of Lake Washington. We'll climb up to to Beacon Hill and ride to The Station Coffee House for a break before heading across the I-90 bridge and around the south end of Mercer Island and back to the park and ride.
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 you don't have one and/or don't want one, come to the ride anyway and just sign the waiver/attendee sheet. All are welcome.
If weather conditions meet the cancel criteria on the day of the ride, I will post a ride-cancelled 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).
