Ride Description: 

This is the seventh of 8 Winter Training Series Rides hosted jointly by CBC and the Seattle Randonneurs. For full description of the Winter Training Series and Randonneuring go to the Seattle Randonneurs website (Seattlerando.org) and then to the <WTS 2014> tab. Though there will be a number of certified ride leaders out on the course, these are self-paced and self-guiding rides with friendly encouragement and lots of camaraderie. THERE ARE NO REGROUPS OR SWEEPS IN THIS SERIES. Please be at the start for sign-in no later 8:30 AM. All rides start promptly at 9:00 AM.

We start with a pleasant ride north along Big Lake on Route 9 and then by Lake Samish with a return down Chuckanut Dr and Bayview Edison Rd. There are hills at the beginning, but though the end is flat, there is often a wind through the flats. Many of us wil get a bite to eat and perhaps a brew at the Conway Pub & Eatery on Main St in Conway.

Directions to the Start: From Seattle drive north on I-5. Take Exit 221. Turn left (west) across the freeway. Go 0.3 miles to a right on Fir Island Rd; Go another 0.7 miles across a bridge to the big white church on the right.  Note: there are no restrooms open at the church.  Stop at the gas station when you first get to Conway if needed.
