Come for a steady paced social ride with some hills, followed by a quick lunch after the ride at Blazing Bagels. We will take West Lake Sammamish Parkway to Issaquah, then Newport Way westbound and return through residential areas of Lake Hills. Sanican at the start but no water. There will be 2 short rest stops during the ride with restrooms but no food stop until the end so bring snacks. Bring 2 full water bottles as the usual stops may have water turned off for the winter. Bring money for lunch if desired.
East Lake Sammamish Trail parking is just west of the Whole Foods shopping complex in Redmond near the east entrance for Marymoor Park. Address for the start location is a business just across the street from the parking lot entrance.
Please print a cue sheet if you would like one or download the route from the link provided. Please arrive early and be ready to ride by 9:50 so we can do the safety briefing and depart promptly at 10am.
