Ride Description: 

Training for Spring is a 10-week series intended to keep our legs moving and warm throughout the winter and preparing us for spring training rides. Optional social gatherings are available before and after the rides to meet and connect with Ride Leaders and fellow riders. Our mid-ride rest stops will be brief in an effort to retain body heat. Please arrive 20 minutes before the published start time to ready your bike, check in, and participate in the SMART safety discussion. Please register to expedite your check-in process.

The 7th of our 10 week Training for Spring series starts at Peet’s Coffee in Redmond.  We’ll head south along East Lake Sammamish, climb over Newport Hill and head north through Beau Arts. We’ll stop at Bellevue Downtown Park for a restroom break and continue north through Medina and Kirkland. Our last hill will be east through the Kirkland corridor and back to Marymoor Park. An optional post-ride meal will be at Agave Cocina & Cantina in Redmond.

If you want a cue sheet, please go to the RideWithGPS link below and print one out for yourself.  There won't be any available from the ride leaders.

Parking: As a courtesy to local businesses, please park in the East Sammamish Trail parking lot and walk/ride to the start location.

Rest Stops:  Bellevue Downtown Park MP 23.1

Post-Ride Meal Location: Agave Cocina & Cantina, 17158 Redmond Way #180, Redmond

Ride Leader mentoring is available. Please contact the Ride Leader prior to the ride.

Comments

Greetings! 

I updated the route based on last weekends route detours (mp 10 to mp 11.2). I also added one hill for route safety (mp 21.7) and changed the rest stop locations (Gilman Village mp 11.4 and Medina City Hall mp 25.7). This increased the elevation gain from 1768 to 1842 feet.

I look forward to seeing you on the ride!
