😉Want to enjoy the RACC Ride, but want a bit shorter distance and a group ride?
We have TWO options to include EVERYONE who wants to "ride RACC."
Our 24-mile route will start and finish at Dairy Queen in The Heights. You'll learn to follow Dan Henry's, the painted marks that indicate turns for event rides. At the Lacamas Lake rest stop (water, treats, restrooms) we refresh and head around the lake back to DQ where they sell... ice cream! (Bring $) This is a bit more challenging route than option #2, but still a GROUP ride, no drop. This is RC 201 in difficulty.
ROUTE LINK Total 24 miles, 600' of climbing.
If 24 miles is a bit much, some of us will ride less, maybe to 192nd Ave along the RACC route with everyone else, then wave goodbye to the others and U-Turn. Pace? We can ride a bit more casually! More like the normal RC 101 ride. NO DROP. This is a GROUP ride.
ROUTE LINK Total 13 miles, 200' of climbing.
See? Something for everyone!
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
Contact me if you have any difficulty. Our registration collects your waiver signature AND emergency contact information. Important!
⦁ Please arrive 15 minutes early to be part of the announcements and safety briefing.
⦁ Bring a bike in good working order (pump up those tires), wear your helmet (REQUIRED), and tuck in some water and a tube that fits your wheel.
⦁ This is a no-rider-left-behind ride meaning that we will travel at the pace of the slowest rider.
Reminder: PACE means the TOP speed the ride leader will travel on the FLATS in no wind. Uphill - we're all solo pioneers doing our best. Downhill - we enjoy the thrill --or apply the brakes. If you can travel 14mph on the flats, this ride is for you. It doesn't mean we'll ride 14 all the time because outdoor riding includes wind, hills, stop lights, traffic, etc). Shawn, our ride leader, welcomes your questions.
