EARTHDREAM Summer Training Series Ride #3
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
The EARTHDREAM Summer Training Series is a set of rides intended for people who have completed a strenuous series such as the RAMROD Training Series or the CATS rides and would like to stay in shape for the duration of the summer. This series puts an emphasis on hill climbing, with each ride featuring multiple hills with a gradient in excess of 15%. This should be a great series of rides for people training for difficult late-season events such the High Pass Challenge or the Passport to Pain.
Ride #3 in this series explores many of the hills of Kirkland-Bothell-Woodinville and goes out of the way to find some of the extra challenging but little known gems of the area. I am posting this ride at a "vigorous" pace (18-20mph) rather than strenuous because of increased climbing. There is also a short stretch on the Samammish River Trail that we will take at a slower pace.
