Ride Description: 

 

PLEASE, NOTE THE START TIME IS 8 A.M.

This ride is a CTS classic, starting from Kenmore Park & Ride. Please, be advised that there are no restroom facilities at the start. (There are some local businesses nearby.)

Our 74-mile route connects quickly to the Burke-Gilman Trail, heading to Woodinville. From there we'll climb up the second toughest climb of CTS (you have already summited #1.) Onward through Maltby and down Broadway to the town of Snohomish. We head east through the river valley to Monroe, then start an easy, steady climb. Enjoy great Cascade range vistas as we drop into Sultan. Returning along the Skykomish River, we make our way back to Monroe for a food stop at Safeway. Then continuing along the river and up Fales Road to Maltby. A big descent at mile 67, then a flat route along the Sammamish River and Burke Gilman trails to the finish. 

Rest stops: Maltby, MP 11; Snohomish, MP 19; Tye Lake Park, MP 26; Monroe Safeway, MP 47; Maltby (again), MP 62.

Please review the Comments Section before the morning of the ride.  If there are any updates to the route, about the weather or cancellation will appear there.

Comments

Because of road construction leaving a mess on a downhill section of Woodinville Duvall Road, I've reverted the route to using 240th to get to Woodinville Snohomish Road. DESCEND CAUTIOUSLY. The hairpin turns are tight and there are plates across the road at the tracks near the bottom. The Map/cue sheet and Route links above have been updated.
