Note the earlier 8:30 start time. Please arrive at least 10 minutes early. There will be a second rider pickup at Enatai Beach Park in Bellevue at 9:00. No formal food stop. Join us if you like hills, and are an experienced, fit rider able to ride safely in groups at a hard pace. Pace is super strenuous meaning paceline speed of 22-25mph on the flats. I'll try to post the route here http://ridewithgps.com/routes just search for HOWC.
Ample free on street parking nearby; as well as at Judkins Park: http://www.cityofseattle.net/parks/park_detail.asp?id=397
