Come ride with the Crank Sisters! This ladies-only ride is a beginner-intermediate ride at a moderate pace. Plan to ride for just under 2 hours, as we’ll be chasing daylight!

Meet at the main trailhead off Paradise Lake Road at 5:30pm. Please be on time - we cannot wait more than 10 minutes for late arrivers.


While we’re outside in the fresh air, it is important that we take precautions to minimize the risk of spreading Covid. This ride is limited to 8 riders. Sorry, but we can't accept "walk-ons". You do need to sign up here before arriving.  IF YOU CANNOT MAKE THE RIDE, PLEASE CANCEL YOUR SPOT ONLINE AND/OR CONTACT THE RIDE LEADER ASAP SO THAT YOUR SPOT CAN BE OPENED UP FOR SOMEONE ELSE.

In addition, please read the below carefully.

Before coming to the ride (for both ride leaders & participants):

·  Please perform a symptoms self-assessment

 o Take your temperature. Do you have a temperature above 100.4?

 o Do you have any COVID-related symptoms

 o Have you been in contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days?

 o If you answer yes to any of these questions, PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE RIDE

 Expectations for riders & leaders:

 ·  Required equipment: You are expected to bring a mask that can cover mouth and nose, any material is acceptable (state guidelines), gloves (your biking gloves are OK), and eye covering (sunglasses, etc are OK). Please note that without this PPE, we will have to ask you to leave the ride.

 ·  Please bring hand sanitizer to use as needed if touching of a common surface is required

 ·  You will be asked to wear your mask anytime close contact (less than 6ft) is required for an extended period of time (>5 min), including during any bike checks, times when you're stopped for discussion, or if you come into contact with other trail users.

 ·  Please bear with us as we try to navigate group rides during a time of social distancing and additional hygiene. It's a learning process for all of us and I appreciate your flexibility and cooperation.


 If you sign up and decide not to come, PLEASE text me so we know who's going to ride!

 Ride leader contact info: Jessica Peterson, 206-999-2316

 Conditions for cancellation: heavy wind, lightning, deep snow. We ride in the rain and cold!

 If a ride must be canceled, the ride leader will attempt to notify anyone signed up by 3pm the day before.

 Grunt rating: some shortish climbs, varied roots and sweeping singletrack.

 Crank Sisters has a no-drop policy. We will regroup often and adjust the pace based on the rider's preference.

 PLEASE NOTE: Paradise trailhead is notorious for break-ins. Please don't leave valuables in your car.
