CANCELLED Group Ride to Pacific TOR - 4/23

This ride is going to be cancelled due to the potential for rain. The Carnation group has decided not to ride or attend the races. If the weather holds up I plan to start from the Bothell location and hit Seattle on my way down.

I apologize for the change. I will let the forum know what time Bothell KSU will be if it happens.

Hi forum members. There are a few of us riding down and participating in the TOR during the first round of races at Pacific Raceways.

Here are the details:

Northend riders meet in Bothell at Starbucks in Canyon Park by 8. KSU will be 8:15. I will be at this location.
Address - Canyon Park Place, 22833 Bothell Way NE, Bothell, WA 98021.

For others riders coming in from the east/west meet at the Starbucks in Carnation at 8:45.
Address - Tolt Town Center, 31722 E Eugene St #8, Carnation, WA 98014
http://tinyurl.com/hbbk63p

We will assemble at the Carnation meetup and ride around the falls to the track. KSU from Carnation will be 9am.

This should give us enough time to get to the track and register for TOR. hope to see you all there. I'll post to this thread if anything changes.

TOR stands for Taste of Racing. It's a 20 minute session on the track for $20 during the lunch break of the race day.

Or, if you've got the whole day to blow, corner work and get ToR for free! Along with getting to watch from the second best seats in the house.

At times they are the best seats in the house. There can be some pretty good racing to watch.

I'm thinking best seat is in the saddle at the track.

Has it been a year since the last time we did this already? Was sure a fun ride.

Damon,
I can probably do a repeat especially if the weather is nice all weekend.

Hi Gang,
So it looks like the weather forecast is impacting this ride and especially the TOR. I am pretty sure there is no TOR if it is raining at all. I have been watching the weather this week and even though the rain is slowly moving out of Saturday it is still there Friday night and a bit the next day.

At this point I am not going to ride around the falls. If the weather looks to be in our favor then I will start from Bothell and make my way down to TOR (the group in Carnation has cancelled).

You are correct, there is no TOR on a wet track.
