Ride Description: 

I have changed the route to May Valley to the Tiger Mountain Store.  After that we’ll do Tiger Mountain Rd from west to east and 208th St.  It is my favorite out and back.  In the afternoon we will do Maple Ridge which is the new housing development on the hill just west of Ravensdale.  We’ll probably have some traffic getting through Renton in the morning and we also have a few blocks on Hwy 169 but otherwise everything is low traffic. If you haven’t ridden with me, I am slow uphill, as in usually last.  I do the flats at 19 or 20, unless I’m drafting someone faster, and I like everyone to be ready to go when I get to the top of the hill.  We will stop for 45 minutes for lunch at Lake Wilderness Shopping Center, there will also be a short break in the morning and afternoon.  Bicentennial Park is on the Green River Trail, just east of Southcenter.  If you are driving take exit 1 off of I-405 and go south on Interurban Ave/West Valley Hwy, then turn right on Strander Blvd.  The park is on the right, right after the bridge.  I expect to be back at Bicentennial Park by 3:00 PM.  We will try to leave promptly at 8:00 AM. I am coming from Montlake and I am hoping to be there by 7:45 AM, any glitches will make me later.  Maps and cue sheets are on the web site:
