Have you looked at the Cascade Daily Rides Calendar and thought 60 miles, 45 miles or even 20 miles – all of it seems a bit daunting? Well, you are not alone. Ride leader (and newly-elected Cascade Boardmember) Merlin Rainwater is planning rides with you in mind! She is putting together rides for people who love the idea of getting together with friends — old and new — to ride for a few miles before attending a fun event.
Come and join her on Saturday, Nov 16, for a 3.5-mile ride to the Wing Luke Museum for their exhibit Under My Skin. As a bonus, this ride coincides with the monthly free Saturday at this Cultural landmark in the International District. After the exhibit, you ‘re invited to join the group for lunch at one of the yummy spots in this diverse part of town.

Want to ride but your bike needs some attention? Cascade has covered there as well. Check out one of the great classes Cascade offers. The next one on the calendar, just two days before Merlin’s ride, is a basic class on chains and derailleurs. This 2.5- hour class on Thursday evening, Nov. 14, will give you hands-on experience with the drivetrain of your bike. And for just $35 ($40 for non-members), you will go home with newfound knowledge and a better running bike. Registration is required, so check out all the details here.
