Hills of the West Coast
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
We’ll leave Sam Smith Park at 8:30 AM, pick up riders at Enatai Park (Bellevue) by 9:00, and pick up riders at Tibbetts Park (Issaquah) by 9:30. We'll head out to the Carnation Valley via Issaquah-Fall City Rd, Duthie Hill, 202, Ames Lk Rd, and Carnation Farms. After a stop in Carnation, we’ll do a nice paceline thru the valley, back on Issaquah Fall City Rd to West Lk Sammamish, and then back on Newport. Zoo Hill will be our last climb, with the Montreux descent as the reward. Although our stop in Carnation will be at a store, there will be no specific food stop on this ride. So please bring plenty of nutrition and two water bottles for such a long hilly ride.
