Ride Description: 

Join us for a special ride from the Route Master himself, Per Sunde. Per has graciously allowed me to use this special route. This route is part of the Boos Varkens rides. The route is designed for the experienced rider who is comfortable with multiple steep climbs in succession. The reward is an equal amount of fun descents!

We will be climbing hills in the Isaquah area. Climbing the backside of Squak, climbing Montreaux and Somerset just to name a few.

There will be a Rest Stop/ Restroom break at 13.1 miles at Lewis Creek Park. There will be limited opportunities to buy food or water along the way. Please come prepared with adequate food and water.
