This is the sixth ride of this year's eight Winter Training Series Rides hosted jointly by CBC and the Seattle Randonneurs. WTS starts January 6th and will end on February 24th. During this eight-ride series, distances progress from about 38 miles to 100 miles. WTS is a great way to do some early season training, with a natural buildup of miles, while enjoying the company of other riders. Winter riding is tough enough--this gives you a chance to do it with friends.

This is a wonderful route that takes in Lake Tapps, Orting, Carbonado, Buckley and lots of great back roads in between. This is one of the most rural rides of the series. No good coffee shops along this route, but there is a Java's Angels espresso stand in Buckley at mile 48.

Please be at the start early enough to sign in, pump up your tires, adjust your fenders, and put all your warm clothes on. Sign-in starts at 8:30 AM, ride announcements are at 8:50 AM, and we start promptly at 9:00 AM - no waiting for those still arriving. Though there will usually be a number of ride leaders on the course, these are self-paced and self-guided rides with friendly encouragement and lots of camaraderie. THERE ARE NO REGROUPS IN THIS SERIES.

VERY IMPORTANT: If you want a cue sheet, please go to the RideWithGPS link above and print one out for yourself. There won't be any available from the ride leaders.

All rides are rain or shine. We might shorten a route for really foul weather, but the only outright cancellation will be for snow or ice. We may delay the start if we believe that the conditions will be safer a bit later in the day. CHECK THE CBC WEBPAGE AT https://cascade.org/node/42751 BEFORE YOU LEAVE HOME.
