14 mile - Start the day earlier with a Bicycle Ride

This is the District at Green Valley ride to & around the M-Casino and return. 

Final 14 mile ride to M-Casino, next week a small increment in difficulty for the newer riders.  Please participate in this early morning 14 mile ride, next week we will have a 16 mile ride...

Google Maps GPS Coordinates starting location:[masked],[masked]

I try to leave on time, and ride to & around the M-Casino and return to the Bread Company location.  Yes the beautiful central park like setting was destroyed in the District at Green Valley for an obnoxious road, but this is still a good cycling meeting place, close to many bicycle trails and great amount of parking.

Please remember to bring your water bottles, food and a helmet is a requirement for this short ride. All level of riders are welcome, good time to try winter time ride.  For you experienced riders there is a treat, to see how quick you are on the short TT...

Join me for another easy ride the following week!  Time spent in the pedals make you a stronger rider...

Remember a modified Cindy's ride is on the 23rd and that has an incline, and a bit more distance.

    I had an Amazing time: Lots of new riders for my eyes, a very mixed skill group, but everyone was in good spirits with the fabulous weather and an easy ride. Thanks to everyone for making this a good ride. Think I missed a couple of riders (Mari, Shannon, and Victoria) maybe we will see you next week.

    It was so exciting to see the newer riders push and ride farther and faster than they believed possible 4 weeks ago. JR

    JR, I have the latest copy of the Cascade Ride club's newspaper. Will bring it Sunday. I know how you feel about adovacy of the Seattle ride group.

    March 13, 2014

    • JR N.

      I get all the emails, tis interesting how much they can influence a political figure or change...

      March 13, 2014

  • Rick K.

    Terry, you going to make this ride?..

    March 13, 2014

  • Angela

    Generally I am unable to join the group due to timing but I need to make more of an effort. What is the difficulty of this 14 mile M ride. I am not sure this will be enough for me.

    March 12, 2014

    • JR N.

      Tis an easy ride, good for learning to ride with a group. Next Sunday is a 16 mile ride with more incline (another step for new riders) Some times there are extra miles ridden with less riders afterwards if you are an experienced cyclists.

      March 12, 2014

  • Fausto C.
