The Taco Time NW Cycling Team Saturday rides run all year round, rain or shine. These are typically used as Fall/Winter training rides. Once March rolls along and the PNW Road Racing scene starts, our turn out may reduce at these rides, but they will still be ongoing! October/November is usually when the off season riding starts again for most people.
The team ride starts from Starbucks on Mercer island – 7695 SE 27th St, Mercer Island, WA 98040
We meet for coffee at 9:00am with a planned roll out at 9:30am. All riders will start together and the ride is typically 45 miles and 2,000ft elevation gain along May Valley and back towards Renton along the trail, then returning to Mercer island via the west or east of Lake Washington.
The ride is designed that groups with different pace with naturally form and there will be some regrouping at the top of hills. We will do our best to sweep and support the groups, but we cannot guarantee everyone will finish together.
