Ride Description: 

 

This is a Women's Ride.  We are an inclusive, encouraging, positive group that welcomes all self-identifying women to experience the fun of riding your bike in the company of other like-minded women. We invite you to experience the fun of group riding while meeting new friends, getting in some exercise and good conversation. Whether you are a seasoned rider or it’s your first group ride, we welcome you and would love to have you join us!

We will start at The Hangar in Kenmore, climb Norway Hill and get in some additional elevation in the Kingsgate area. We'll make our way around Sixty Acres Park and do a bit more climbing before our rest stop at Trek Bicycle Redmond at mile 16.5. After the break, we'll find our way to the 520 trail which we'll follow into Kirkland. If the group is feeling sprightly after the Juanita Hill climb we may take an optional Holmes Point Dr descent to the water and climb back up to Juanita Drive, but that will be a group decision. We welcome you to stay for a bit at the end of the ride and have a coffee or beverage with the group.

RSVP & ARRIVAL TIME: Please RSVP by clicking on the red Register Now button at the top of this page to save time at the ride start. Arrive 15 minutes prior to the ride start to sign the waiver and be ready for the safety briefing.

PACE/ELEVATION: The listed pace is based on the flats, with no headwind, and at your own pace up hills. We will wait at the top of climbs to give all riders a chance to catch a breath before continuing as a group. We are a group who encourages and empowers one another to achieve our personal goals. When using designated bicycle trails we will observe the posted speed limit. 

PARKING/RESTROOMS: There is plenty of free parking both in The Hangar parking lot and on-street. Restrooms are available inside The Hangar. 

PLANNED STOPS: There will be a restroom/coffee break at Trek Bicycle Redmond. Please bring additional nutrition with you, as necessary.

MECHANICALS: Group will stop for flats. Bring tools and knowledge to repair flats, and a plan ie: Orca card, or a friend/Uber to call if you have a more serious mechanical failure or choose to not repair your flat roadside.

RECOMMENDED/REQUIRED: Head and tail lights recommended for safety.  Mirrors are highly recommended by the ride leader to keep yourself and your riding buddies safe and seen. Fenders and buddy flaps are appreciated if rain is in the forecast.

RIDE CANCELLATION: In the event of a weather cancellation, notice will be posted in the comments on this page at least two hours before the ride start, and the ride leader will not be at the ride start location.
