For the Seattle cycling community, Meet the Team Rides begin on September 24th and will take place on Saturdays and Sundays through November 20th. Rides will meet at 9:15 at Leschi Park, 201 Lakeside Ave S, Seattle 98122, with the rides departing at 9:30 and proceeding at a social, "no drop" pace around the south end of Lake Washington and returning across I-90 to Leschi.
If your team wants to host a Meet the Team ROAD ride outside Seattle, we will be happy to include your information in the ride list on the WSBA website. Please just let me know where and when the ride will meet and the estimated time/distance of the ride.
If your team is interested in hosting a Seattle Meet the Team ride this year, please contact me natehakken (at) gmail.com with your preferred date and one or two alternates. To secure a date, you’ll need to provide:
1. the name and email address of a team contact (which will be published with ride details);
2. a brief statement of your team's goals and who you’re recruiting;
3. the URL of your team website.
Dates are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The complete schedule of ride dates and team information will be posted on the WSBA website, probably by mid-September
If your team is not already listed on the WSBA Teams in the Region page, please fill out and submit this form and we’ll add you to the page so that prospective riders can read about your team.
USA Cycling recommends that each team permit its Meet the Team ride as a Non-Competitive Training Ride, which can provide general liability insurance. More information on that permitting process is available from USA Cycling: https://usacycling.org/event-organizer/benefits-of-permitting/permit-process
