Ride Description: 

The Rainy Day Hills series of rides is designed to help strong riders stay in shape over the winter. Riding hills build strength, but it also helps us stay warm in the cold, wet weather. The routes are designed to stay close to the start so that we can head back early if need be.

The starting location is the Kirkland Transit Center, between Peter Kirk Park and the library. There are four hours of free parking at the library. Water and a heated restroom are also available.

Our only food/water stop on this ride will be at the Bridal Trails Starbucks at about mile 25.

If you click the "Register Now" button on this page it saves you from having to sign in at the start of the ride.  Also, it gives me an idea of how many people to expect. Please register at least two hours before the start of the ride.

Please plan on arriving at least 15 minutes before the start of the ride so you can get signed in, hear the pre-ride briefing, and be ready for an on-time start.  All riders must be present for the briefing in order to participate.

Steady rain, ice, and snow cancel this ride.  If the ride is canceled due to weather, a notice will be posted in the comments 2 hours prior and the ride leader will not be at the start.  Be sure to check back on this web site for weather updates if the weather is in doubt. Please bring long fenders if the roads are wet or rain is in the forecast.




I think we are going to get a break in the weather, but please bring fenders because we are likely to see rain before the ride is over.
