Join us for a hilly 46 mile ride on nearby Vashon Island with a 4180’ elevation gain. We will meet on the Vashon Ferry dock at 9:45 a.m. and catch the 10:10 a.m. ferry to the island. This ride recommended for more experienced cyclists who have been riding hills.
CUE SHEET: http://files.meetup.com/3386582/Hill_Romp_-_Vashon.pdf
COST: Bring $6.00 for passenger/bike ticket.
PACE: Will adhere to 16-18 mph on flats with equivalent effort (but not speed) on hill climbs and use cautious descents. We will regroup (within reason) at tops of hills, but will not wait for fixing flats or mechanical issues so come prepared with everything you need. Please print and bring a cue sheet with you in case you become separated from the group. Faster paced riders are welcome and encouraged to join, but for them the ride will be self-guided. The route offers many bailout options, noted on the cue sheet.
REST STOPS: Please bring food and water. Restroom/water stops at miles 26 and 35 (coffee stop in town) and on ferry both directions.
PARKING: Park in the northernmost lot Lincoln Park or on the Northbound side of Fauntleroy (be aware if time limits are posted, do not park in southbound ferry loading line).
FERRY: 10:10 a.m. sailing. Fauntleroy to Vashon. Arrive on Ferry Dock by 9:45 a.m. Park bike on right-hand side in bike waiting area). Bikes not allowed in terminal.
WEATHER: Steady rain (or extremely gusty wind conditions) cancels.
RSVP: Yes! Please let us know you are coming.
