Ride Description: 

Join us for a steady, social, occasionally hilly ride from Kirkland which will proceed to Redmond this week.  We will head eastwardly from Kirkland to climb up Rose Hill early in our ride and then turn south toward the 520 Trail which will take us to Redmond via Marymoor Park.  We will return via Kingsgate Hill toward Juanita and subsequently to our start in Kirkland.   The route starts/ends at Heritage Park in downtown Kirkland with optional restroom stops at Kirkland Marina Park (0.4 miles) and at Marymoor Park (12.5 miles).    This is a mid-week ride on bike friendly roads and trails with a coffee/food stop on the route which will be at the QFC complex in Redmond (16.5 miles).  There are hills, but we climb them at our own pace and always regroup at the top.  Don and Jane will be gone again this week so we will do our best with your help to try to keep the series rides going! 

Please arrive in time to be ready to ride at the start time, 11:00 a.m.

Comments

Bring lots of hydration - we may add a brief stop if needed to keep everyone’s water supply adequate for the conditions.

We can discuss at the lunch stop but I have re-routed our return to a little better hill for climbing in the heat - we will use Rose Hill rather than Kingsgate Hill - no significant overall change to the elevation or distance of the ride.  The ridewithgps link is current.

See you Thursday for a fun ride!
