Come join us on March 16 for the opening 200 km brevet of the 2019 Seattle International Randonneurs season. Whether your cycling goals for this season include a full brevet series, Paris-Brest-Paris or just a few long rides, we think you will like this ride.
Start at 7 AM from DeYoung Park
(13680 NE 175th St, Woodinville). Please arrive early to get signed in.
Recommended parking is at the Woodinville Park & Ride (17800 140th Ave NE, Woodinville).
Note: there is a Haggen’s Market next to DeYoung Park, which has an early morning café and restrooms.
We will start at DeYoung Park at 7 AM and make our way north past Echo Lake and Lost Lake to Monroe. Then we ride up past Lake Roesiger to Granite Falls, and further north to take in a stretch of Lake Cavanaugh Road before our turnaround point just south of Big Lake. We return south on familiar roads past Lake McMurray, and then onto the Centennial trail through Arlington and past the town of Lake Stevens to bring us back to Snohomish. Here you can refuel if needed for the final push back to Woodinville, where we will finish at Metier Brewing Company’s alehouse. There is no lake at the brewery, but they do have cold drinks. Toast your success and share stories there at the end of the ride with your fellow randonneurs/randonneuses in a bicycle friendly environment.
This is a rolling course on mostly back roads with about 1600 meters/5200 feet of total climbing. Because it is an early season ride, you should bring lights, and if the weather is inclement you will make more friends if you have fenders on your bicycle.
This will count as a 200km qualifying brevet for Paris-Brest-Paris.
Lights and reflective gear are required for this ride. At the start, have your front and rear lights on the bike and wear your reflective vest and ankle bands.
RUSA membership is not required, but is strongly recommended, especially if you are using this ACP 200K to qualify for Paris-Brest-Paris.
