TREATS: Mercer Island Clockwise and Counter
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
Enjoy the curves around Mercer Island. We'll start in the south parking lot at Renton Memorial Stadium (no restrooms). There will be a stop for restrooms and water at Coulon Park after 2 miles. Then we'll ride north on the Lake Washington Bike Loop Trail up to the Mercer Slough Nature Park, cross the East Channel on the I-90 Bike Lane and regroup. Cruise around Mercer Island clockwise. Stop for lunch at Homegrown Sustainable Sandwiches (Menu link below). Retrace the route counter-clockwise back to I-90 and down the east side of Lake Washington to the start. We will start each Mercer Island loop together but climb and coast the rollers in our own comfort zone.
