Training for Spring # 9 E Lake Sammamish Bridge to Bridge Loop
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
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 9th of our 10 week Training for Spring series starts at Peet’s Coffee in Redmond. We’ll warm up our legs heading south along East Lake Sammamish and then climb up Newport Hill. We’ll make a quick restroom stop at the QFC in Factoria then roll across I-90 and up to SR-520. We’ll return to the start line via the 520 Trail. An optional post-ride meal will be at Flying Saucer Pizza in Redmond.
