We begin our ride at Ron Regis Park in Renton and will ride to Black Diamond bakery where we'll stop for coffee and pastries. We will return the way we came retracing our course back to Renton.
Meet at the parking lot early enough to sign the ride waiver, hear the route details, and review the SMART riding. We ride promptly at 10:00 AM.
Riders should come prepared with all necessary equipment to fix a flat and ride safely.
So please dress appropriately for the weather. Layers, booties, head wear. And please fenders on your bike in wet weather.
