Ride Description: 

Sixth in an annual series of weekly training rides designed to help riders prepare for large events (STP, RSVP, RAMROD, HPC, etc.). Rides will increase in distance and elevation gain each week.  We will meet in the large parking lot (W6) adjacent to the playing fields in Magnuson Park.  Please note the early start time.

This week marks our first century ride of the series as we make our way south for a relatively flat out-and-back to Flaming Geyser State Park near Black Diamond.  Our route takes us down along Lake Washington Blvd. to Renton, onto the Green River and Interurban Trails through Tukwila, Kent, Auburn and the Green Valley Road to the Park.  We will return roughly along the same route.

Riders must be self-sufficient and be able to ride in groups. We will maintain a strict brisk pace (16-18 mph on the flats). Bring spare tubes, tools, etc. and if wet, fenders would be appreciated. We plan to leave promptly at 8:00 AM.
