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 ( 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.
