Hate riding in sloppy conditions with cars? I do too! No cross bike? 28c or wider will do. That's all you need. Ride the Snoqualmie Valley trail (hardpack ballast) from Carnation to trails end and back with a small diversion on a side trail to Fall City for lunch. This is fun even in the rain. No cars, just trees and peaceful riding. Directions to start - east on Entwistle in Carnation just a few blocks to the trail access parking lot on right.
