CATS Magnuson -- Flaming Geyser Century
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
This Cascade Advanced Training Series (CATS) ride goes south down Lake Washington and along the Green River all the way to Flaming Geyser Park, returning mostly the same way. Elevation Gain is about 2700 feet. This is one of the flattest centuries possible around Seattle.
There will be 2 rest stops at Top Foods in Auburn, the first at mile 38 and the second at mile 64. We have been increasing our climbing over the three 5 rides. The idea of this ride is to do a 50% increase in distance with as little climbing as possible. This is the usual scenario for one day STP riders. Please read the pacelining page on the website. Most of this ride should be in a rotating paceline, unless it is too wet.
The ride starts at the big parking lot south of NE 74th St in the park. Please be at the start ready to ride by 7:45, we hope to be riding before 8:00. Maps, cue sheets and more are available at https://sites.google.com/site/catsatmagnuson2014/
