TREATS/ 60 acres Redmond Ridge
If you are new, please read our newcomer information.
This is a very pretty and somewhat hilly route from Redmond to Redmond Ridge via Education Hill, English Hill, Hollywood Hill and Ring Hill on mostly quiet residential and rural roads. Despite the description, most of the hills are shallow to moderate grade with only a couple of steeper hills. We will regroup at the top of hills as needed. The route includes a few short unpaved sections connecting neighborhoods that are easily walkable with your bike. There will be a coffee/lunch stop on Redmond Ridge at Starbucks but it is not until mile 29 so please bring pocket food to help you make it to lunch. There is also a QFC nearby. Start location has a sanican but no water so bring 2 full water bottles and money for lunch/coffee if desired.
IMPORTANT: Please note the start location is the newer and much larger parking area at the far east end of the 60 acres area, NOT the small lot by the Sammamish River trail. Just drive a little further east past that small lot and the lot entrance will be on your right just before the road heads up a steep hill on 116 th St.
Please arrive by 9:40 to allow time to prepare your bike and use the restroom so we can have the safety/ride briefing and depart on time at 10 am.
If I need to cancel the ride due to inclement weather I will post a cancellation notice in the comments section of this ride posting no later than 8 am on ride day and then will not be at the start. Please check the comments section before driving to the start. Rain during the ride could amend the route.
