MEETS - Marymoor, BJs Brewhouse (Moderate/~25 mi's)

***NOTE CHANGE IN VENUE***

We will be starting and ending tonight's ride at BJ's Brewhouse - where we plan to stop in for some holiday cheer after the ride. We still plan to ride ~25 miles with ~1500 feet of elevation. Join us as we ride in some local neighborhoods decorated with lights for the holidays!

For those riders willing to ride in the dark, but unable to make it to Bellevue MEETS (Midweek Eastside Evening Training Series), we are offering a Thursday edition out of Marymoor, with a single pace - Moderate. All routes will be between 20-25 miles and 1,000-1,500 feet. We will continue to ride similar MEETS routes with local hills and trails. If you enjoyed Wednesday night MEETS, come out and join us this Thursday! This week's route: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/3755714







***PLEASE NOTE THAT A GOOD HEAD AND TAIL LIGHT ARE REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS RIDE. IF IT IS RAINING, FENDERS ARE APPRECIATED BY YOUR FELLOW RIDERS.

    I forgot to ask: Did anyone else notice the possum on the side of the bike path? It was just after we left Marymoor and crossed over the slough, about a quarter mile down from the bridge. I pointed at it and said, "Possum." just as though it were a bump in the road to be avoided. I don't think Martha believed me. Anyone else see it?

    Well, after the final sync from Strava, the elevation comes out to around 900'. This sounds more accurate, though Rick's Strava numbers are slightly different from mine. What? Weren't we on the same ride? Maybe it's because Rick is taller. ;) Yes, I'm sure that's it.

    It was nice to welcome Dalillah to the group. Hope to see you and everyone (the more the merrier) for next Thursday's ride. Hopefully Kimberly and Nan and Bob will be able to join us for another ride through the neighborhoods of Sammamish.

      Have we turned into the Cascade Bike and Book Club?

      I figured it was right up your alley! As long as we don't read ON the bikes!

    Thanks everyone for coming last night - really enjoyed the evening, the best way to look at holiday lights IMHO! Special thanks to Tim for putting together the route and Peter for adding the photo op!

    Im on my way!

    December 12, 2013

    • Tim S.

      D, we are giving you a few more minutes and then we have to go.

    Hmm, I was questioning riding in the dark under rain as I did some major maintenance in my bike by myself and I haven't gotten a chance to ride it yet (cleaned/lubed hubs, cassette, pulleys and some cables and also replaced the chain).

    But I think I will take the risk :-) See you later today!

  • Dalillah B.

    Id like to come but im not sure if im ready for it.Can i still try it out? Its the speed im a bit worried about :/

    December 12, 2013

    • Dalillah B.

      Yay! I am more motivated to come now. Count me in! :) Thanks for the quick reply. I normally do 20 on flat. And it slows down going uphill haha

      2 · December 12, 2013

    • Sandi N.

      If you normally ride at 20 mph on the flat, you will be faster than all of us.

  • Bob D

    Have to cancel, dang work is cutting into my play time.

    December 12, 2013

    • Tim S.

      There may be only a slow charge up Inglewood Hill without you. See you at the next ride.

      December 12, 2013

  • Peter

    My mommy double booked my play activities today. :) I'm headed to Strevens Pass but taking my bike. Hope to get back in time to join you.

    December 12, 2013

    • Sandi N.

      Sounds like fun! Hope you make it back in time. You are still welcome to join us for a bite to eat and a brew at BJs after...

      December 12, 2013

  • Sandi N.

    Just a heads up - we are supposed to get some precipitation tonight, but with the warmer temperatures, no concern about snow or ice. I plan to ride even if it's raining. Remember the venue change - see everyone at BJs.

  • Rick W.

    I think I'll put some Christmas lights on my bike for this ride:)

    • Tim S.

      Where are you getting the lights for your bike, Rick?

      December 11, 2013

    • Rick W.

      My wife bought me some at Target and she says they also sell them at Safeway. 6.5' length string which takes 3 AA batteries. They were only like 5 bucks.

      1 · December 11, 2013

  • Tim S.

    Yeah, Martha is riding! And I hear Christie is interested, Sandi. Perhaps a nudge might help. And what about the Bellevue crowd? They should be joining us for this event, yes?

    December 11, 2013

    • Sandi N.

      I will nudge Christie... and I have invited the Bellevue crowd.

      1 · December 11, 2013

    • Tim S.

      Thanks Sandi. I hope they all come join us.

      December 11, 2013

  • Bob D

    Biking, Christmas lights, & brews! Sounds like a fun evening.

      Bob, you need to wear the Santa hat...

    This ride goes by one of my neighbors who goes all out and puts on one of the best light shows in the area. A brief pause and side trip off NE 25th way is highly recommended.

    December 9, 2013

    • Peter D.

      Just West on 227th PL NE.

      December 9, 2013

    • Tim S.

      Ah, okay. I'm sure, we can do that, sounds good.

      December 10, 2013

  • Rick W.

    What's parking like near there?

    December 7, 2013

    • Tim S.

      Easy, Rick. It's Redmond Town Center, just down the street from REI.

      December 7, 2013

    • Tim S.

      I should say BJ's or Claim Jumper (wherever we end up) is just down the street from REI and Macy's. However, they are all in the area called Redmond Town Center - plenty of parking.

      December 9, 2013

  • Sandi N.

    Please note change in venue! We will start out at BJ's Brewhouse.

    December 5, 2013

  • Sandi N.

    Thanks to Tim and Bob for planning the route and venue suggestions!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
