Mark your calendars for the Hurricane Ridge ride scheduled for September 23, 2015 Wednesday midweek! 

RIDE NAME:

Ride the Hurricane II

RIDE DESCRIPTION:

The ride starts at the Olympic National Park Visitor Center in Port Angeles with parking available there.

After meeting up we will climb ~18 miles up to the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center and enjoy lunch at the top.  The descent down to parking is thrilling! 

 This is a challenging but beautiful ride  to have fun. 

START TIME/LOCATION:
September 23 - Wednesday 9 AM at the Olympic National Park Visitor Center 3002 Mount Angeles Rd, Port Angeles, WA 98362

MAP LINK:  http://www.nps.gov/olym/planyourvisit/visitorcenters.htm

Seattle drivers should take the 7:10 AM Edmonds Ferry to Kingston. Then, drive to the Olympic National Park Visitor Center in Port Angeles. We will plan to start riding at 9 AM after all the cars carrying riders arrive.  

CAR POOLING:
Carpooling is encouraged!  If you don’t have a car pool, please
consider sending a COGS email seeking a ride or volunteering to drive.  

PACE:

The climb up Hurricane Ridge will be at each rider’s individual pace.  Some riders will more quickly ascend; others will just take their time and eventually crest the top. However, one should be able to sustain a long 5000+ foot climb to endure this ride. We will regroup if needed.

 REGROUPING PLAN:

We can regroup as needed on the way up.

At the top we will regroup for lunch at Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center and share stories of our epic climb.

After lunch, we will descend back to the Olympic National Park Visitor Center parking lot, and decompress!

GPS & CUE SHEET:

Down load if you would like one.

EQUIPMENT:

Bring two water bottles . You will need both! Bring energy food to fuel
yourself during the climb. Remember you are riding in a rain forest and on a
mountain so come prepared. The ride down will be colder so bring appropriate clothes. Also bring pump, spare tubes, and other
biking gear to make yourself self-sufficient. Money will be needed to pay for ferry, your Park entrance fee, and for lunch at the top. This is an unsupported ride, per se.

RAIN POLICY:

Heavy rain cancels. If in doubt call the ride leader. 

RIDE LEADER:

Ride leader is John Verrilli, Cell 206-954-3423 Please feel free to contact 

your ride leader about the ride if you have any questions. 

PS: Invite a non-COGS friend(s) to join
in on the fun and introduce them to COGS!
