Ride Description: 

We’ll leave Sam Smith Park at 8:30am, pick up riders at Enatai Park (Bellevue) by 9:00, and pick up riders at Tibbetts Park (Issaquah) around 9:30. We’ll adhere to posted speed limits when on the I-90 pathway. We'll head out to the Carnation Valley via Issaquah-Fall City Rd, Duthie Hill, Hwy 202, Ames Lk Rd, and Carnation Farms. After a stop in Carnation, we’ll head back thru the valley, and then back on Issaquah Fall City Rd to West Lk Sammamish and back on Newport. Zoo Hill will be our last climb, with the Montreaux descent as the reward.
There will be a brief food stop at the store in Carnation. However please bring plenty of nutrition and two water bottles for such a long hilly ride.  The Garmin link below shows the route of the ride.
