Theresa's Tuesday Night Hill Ride (beginners welcome)

Location visible to members

Beginner Friendly!

Come join us for a special Tuesday night hill climb/power development workout. Be prepared for 60 to 90 minutes of steep hills and/or hard efforts. Also MUY IMPORTANTE make sure that your bike is in good working order and there is plenty of life left in your brake pads. Can not stress this enough...Check your gear BEFORE coming out!

The routes are chosen to minimize riding in traffic. So this ride is better for riders less comfortable riding around cars, and new riders. There is a combination of short steep hills, and longer gradual climbs. If you are not a strong rider, I suggest using a bike with low gearing. We regroup frequently and try not to lose anyone. Riders are encouraged to bring road or triathlon bikes for the sake of keeping the group pace consistent, but we'll gladly welcome a new cyclist on a mountain or hybrid bike. Please note that this is a training ride and not a social ride. This requires that you pay attention to the group dynamics as we ride on open roads and try to stay with the group.

Rain cancels the ride. Please check back in the comments section prior to ride for cancellation due to bad weather. Wheels rolling start time is 5:30PM, so be there and ready to listen to the ride briefing by 5:25. That includes getting your bike ready, and signing paper waivers if necessary.

If you are a paid group member, you only have to sign the waiver once per year, and you get the benefit of the team USAT insurance. Non-paid members, please sign the waiver online here, so we don’t have to make you sign a paper waiver at the event. Last minute online RSVPS will have to sign a paper waiver as well, so please RSVP as early as
possible!

Link below works for paid and non paid members. Paid members have to log in first to get the paid member waiver link.

By RSVPing for this and any Seattle Green Lake Triathlon Group (SGLTG) event I agree to the following:

I know that triathlon (swimming/biking/running) and participating in SGLTG events are potentially hazardous activities. I should not participate in group activities unless I am medically able and properly trained. I assume all risks associated with triathlon and participating in SGLTG events including but not limiting to, falls, contact with other participants, the effects of the weather including high heat and/or humidity, the conditions of the road and traffic on the various courses and routes, water conditions including but not limited to temperature and visibility, and such risk being known and appreciated by me. Having read this waiver and knowing these facts, and in consideration of my attendance at this event, I for myself and anyone entitled to act on my behalf, waive and release the Seattle Green Lake Triathlon Group, and all sponsors, their representatives and successors from all claims or liabilities of any kind arising out of my participation in this activity even though that liability may arise out of negligence or carelessness on the part of the person named in this waiver.

LAST Thursday SLOWS (Sammamish Landing Open Water Swim) Hosted by me this Fall!

Join us for a Thursday swim @ the Sammamish Landing! We meet at the closet picnic tables near the dock and then swim for any distance you like (easily swim up to 1 mile). A brightly colored swim cap, a buoy for safety and a wet suit are all highly recommended. The wet suit is especially helpful early in the season but is not necessary. Please arrive at 5:15 PM to sign waivers put on your swim gear and listen to the safety briefing. We will plan to start swimming at 5:30 PM.

There are restrooms just above the picnic tables where you can change, however, there is no gear watch. A swim buoy with a dry pouch is useful to bring your phone and keys with you on the swim.
*** RSVP's and Electronic Waivers will be checked at 4 PM, RSVP's will be closed at that time, ANYONE who comes and didn't RSVP BEFORE THE 4 PM close will need to sign the paper waiver upon arrival, NO EXCEPTIONS!! The more paper waiver signatures that need to be gathered the longer it takes for the host to be ready! SO SIGN UP EARLY AND SIGN THE ELECTRONIC WAIVER!! *** If you're not sure you will make it, but plan to, it's better to RSVP yes that you are coming and then if you can not make it you can comment or change your RSVP to no after it's closed.
Please post in the comments below how far you are looking to swim and feel free to ask any questions.
In order to participate in any SGLTG event, you must sign a waiver. All participants are required to sign the waiver. Paid members must sign the paid member waiver once per year. Non-paid members must sign a non-member waiver for every event that they attend, choose the event and the date in the form. In hopes of expediting the waiver process at each event, please sign your waivers electronically by using the following link --
​http://sgltg.org/waiver/
-- Again, if your a paid member you will need to log in and sign the waiver ONLY once for 2022, if not then there is a separate link on that page for the non-paid members waiver.
