Intermediate MTN bike ride: Cultus Lakes O&B

October 6, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Cultus Lakes ride is one of my favorites that includes three mtn lakes, a nice trail, sandy beaches and mtn views.

This ride will be limited to 6 riders in order to stay within the Bella guidelines for social distancing. Please don’t park too close together. Masks are strongly encouraged during our pre-ride remarks, and please stay 6 feet apart then and during our rest stops.

This is a solid intermediate ride based on mileage and elevation gain. The ride will take 3-4 hrs at an intermediate pace with regroups at all intersections and time to enjoy the beauty of this ride. Please don’t sign up if you want a super fast pace or have a schedule you need to meet. You should be an intermediate rider regularly riding this distance with similar elevation gain. No water or services are available after we start the ride. Make sure your bike is in good working order and you have adequate food, water, and any clothing items you need.

There will not be a second group for this ride, but feel free to join the waitlist in case someone cancels.

Details of ride:
Date: Tuesday, Oct 6, ready to ride at 10:00 am.
Length of ride: 18 miles, this an O&B w/ a loop in the middle
Elevation gain: approx 1200′

Coordinators: Shannon Bergstedt @425-941-0944 and Susanita @ 202-413-2693

Rain/thunderstorms/high winds/smoke will cancel this ride. Any changes due to weather or other factors will be announced on Meetup the day/evening before the ride.

Bella rides are “no-drop” rides and no one will be left behind. In consideration of others, we do ask that you choose an ability level that is close to your skills. If you choose to leave the group by going significantly faster or taking a different route, you have an obligation to let the leader know. When you leave the group, you are on your own. This ride is for Bella members only.
