Red # 13: Full Lake Loop and Post Ride Celebration
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
We are ending our CTS series with the classic Full Lake Loop (49 miles, 2,100 ft of elevation gain). You have already completed this route so this will be a great comparison on you how much stronger you have become! You will start at Cascade and warm up quickly as you ride North along the lake. After a fast downhill in to Kenmore you will ride on the Burke Gilman Trail to Bothell, where you will begin riding South along the lake, going through Kirkland to Bellevue and a rest stop and chance to refill your water just before mile 18. You'll then head down through Bellevue and Renton, pause at Gene Coulon park, then across the South end of the lake, and head back North up the other side of the lake. You'll climb to Seward Park and/or Madrona Park for another rest stop before continuing on the familiar route from Seward Park back to Cascade.
There will not be an opportunity to buy food on this ride so bring plenty of snacks, a lunch, and two bottles of water if you can.
Post-ride celebration with food and refreshments will complete our 13 weeks of training!
