Evergreen Crank Sisters Women's Group Beginner-mediate Ride at Big Finn Hill
This is a ladies-only ride. We will meet at 10:00 am in Big Finn Hill Park by the playground and large picnic gazebo. ENTER THE PARK FROM JUANITA DR (west end of park), not from 84th Ave NE (east end of park). There is a closed gate in between the two sections and you won't be able to see the group if you're parked by the baseball fields. Pro tip: enter "Kirkland Lacrosse Center" in Google Maps and it will lead you right to the correct side of the park.

Starting time is 10:15. Please be on time -- we cannot wait more than 10 minutes for late arrivers. If you sign up and decide not to come, PLEASE text me!
Ride Leader contact info: Doraine Raichart

Trails: Let's start the ride on soft, pine-needly trails above the playground, then wind around to see the new bridges at The Swamp before we cross the road for more Finn Hill fun. Exploration beyond to O.O. Denny Park and down to the Lake's edge could be added if there is interest in piling on elevation and cardio. Trails will be decided based on rider preferences, and are subject to change based on weather, trail conditions, etc. 
Conditions for cancellation: Heavy wind, lightning, deep snow or heavy rain. We ride in the moderate rain and cold! If a ride must be canceled, the ride leader will attempt to contact anyone signed up by 3 pm the day before the ride.
Grunt rating: Please plan to ride for two hours with breaks. 
Bring lots of water and some snacks. We will do some climbs, but nothing too difficult. An optional grunt hill climb will be available for anyone who wants to try it. There are some roots and rocks but these trails have minimal technical features. Crank Sisters have a no-drop policy - we will regroup often and adjust the pace based on riders' preference.

Other information: Sessioning is encouraged. Please make sure your bike is in good working order. If you're not sure, please have it checked by your bike mechanic prior to the ride. Bring a spare tube and pump so you can fix a flat tire.

We can meet for beverages or lunch after if anyone is interested.
