- ADRATS '24 (Ambitious Day Ride Around the Sound) Steward Miles Spring OpenerNeeds location
This looks like a fun ride to do before our EOW ride, now on Sunday. While I'm meeting them in Tacoma, you can join the group at the start in Lynnwood. Just post in the comments which location you'll meet at. ~Claudette "Diva"
Event by RC Miles and Around the Sound Riders (ASR)
Ambitious Day Ride Around the Sound (ADRATS)
Spring Openers should be shortly after the season starts, not at the end. So, who's with me? It's an easy peasy scenic route and we'll have fuel and a lunch stop (TBD) along the way.
🏍Northpack meet at the Lynnwood Shell Station on 200th and 44th in Lynnwood at 8. KSU@08:30!
🏍Southpack or any other riders that don't want to meet up north, we can link up at the Marathon gas station in Tacoma, 4401 6th Ave, Tacoma, WA 98406. 09:30 should be a good meeting time to allow travel for the Northpack from Lynnwood.
My rides are always chill, to accommodate for all caliber of rider experience and skill. Rider safety and awareness is always at the forefront and I'll be conducting a ride meeting at both meeting locations.
- Annual End Of Winter (EOW) Ride (3 meeting points)Chevron, Lacey, WA
Winter ends on March 19th so let's celebrate by doing our annual EOW ride (started by Randy the Xman), now it it's 19th year. We have 3 meeting points: 10am in Kennydale, ~11:30am in Hawk's Prairie, ~1pm in Castle Rock. Arrive, gas up and be ready to go. ~Claudette "Diva"
Event subject to weather, will reschedule if crappy weather.
MEETING SPOTS (see addresses in Route link):
🏍 Kennydale/Renton: KSU (kickstands up) shortly after a pre-ride spiel (which I'll do at each spot for people joining us so we're all on the page).
🏍 Hawk's Prairie: About 11:00 am we'll stop at exit 111 to pick up southend riders and gas up.
🏍 Castle Rock: If you want to meet us for lunch/coming up from OR/S WA, we'll be rolling into Peper's 49ER Restaurant exit 49 around 1pm. We'll gas up first then head over to the restaurant. KSU around 2pm.
Subject to change.
Note the final point on Mt. St. Helen's is just a placeholder. We'll see how far up we can go.
Includes an optional backroads route up to Chehalis/Centralia. Review so you'll know the length and times from points/gas/lunch in Castle Rock, etc.
This is more of an intermediate ride due to the amount of time going freeway speeds of 60/70, length of the trip and twisties on Mt St. Helens, but you're a newer rider and can handle it - all are welcome.
Haven't ridden in a group or it's been a while. Get up to speed at:

- International Female Ride Day ~ Ride to the Kangaroo Farm (Men Welcomed)O'Reilly Auto Parts, Redmond, WA
Details from the last time, subject to change - Co-ed this year!
May has been dedicated to honor and celebrate women who ride. In the past we've done this as a women only ride, this year we're making this a CO-ED ride so the men who celebrate women riders are invited to join us! ~Claudette "Diva"
This is an All-Levels ride taking us mostly along the backroads. Riders of all levels are encouraged to join, whether it's your first ride with the group or you're a regular. It's a real laid back and casual ride with lots of curves, and I've cushioned the time a bit so we get to the tour on time.
The official start of the ride is in Redmond, but those traveling from the South, North or across the Lake or Sound are welcome to post ride-in meeting places and times. From Redmond we'll take the easy, super fun route to the Kangaroo Farm and have a lunch at the Restaurant at Rhodes River Ranch before the tour.
ROUTE: https://goo.gl/maps/jPQ4Div7NVxNFZfh8 2 hr 1 min (76.7 miles)
Everyone review the route ahead of time and bring a copy with you (turn by turn directions available via phone - with Google maps you will need to click continue to use the customized route).
10am - Meet in Redmond. Arrive gassed up and ready to go after pre-ride spiel.
10:20am - Kickstands up
11:00am - Arrive at the Monroe Jack in the Box

11:50am - Arrive at Chevron Granite Falls

12:45pm - Arrive at the Restaurant at Rhodes River Ranch for LUNCH

After the tour, you can take the freeway directly home or take the backroads back to Monroe/Redmond then part from there. Can take Hwy 530 to I-5, Hwy 9 or head back the way we came up.
If we get a lot of interest, we can break the groups down to smaller numbers and skill level with an experienced rider as lead and sweep.
- Ride to Whistler for Memorial Day WeekendCostco Gas Station, Kirkland, WA
Time to head back to Whistler since we were there last in 2017. This is a beautiful ride up the coast from Vancouver to Whistler and there are numerous waterfalls and amazing vistas to the ocean as well. Bring your bathing suit for the hot tub! Don't forget your Enhanced Driver's License or Passport to cross the border. This will be a co-ed trip with 2 lodging options ~Claudette "Diva"
Stay tuned for details.
