Ride Description: 

Join us for an Eastside ride from East Lake Sammamish Trailhead in Redmond on a 39 mile route at Steady pace of 12-14 MPH!

This is a repeat of the October 19th TREATS ride with a couple of minor route changes. This route leverages a combination of trails and mostly quiet (and scenic!) back roads on the Eastside. It begins by winding through Marymoor Park. After climbing the 520 trail, we will head north past Bridle Trails and a pit stop at Grass Lawn Park. From there, we will cross the 405 pedestrian crossing and enjoy views of Lake Washington, continuing for a short jaunt on the hard-packed gravel of the Cross-Kirkland Trail. We will briefly join back up with the 520 trail before winding through quiet Medina to our lunch stop at Blazing Bagels in downtown Bellevue.  We will make our way to the I-90 trail and ride along the recently completed section of the Mountains to Sound Greenway through Eastgate. Finally, after making our way through Lake Hills, we will drop back down to Lake Sammamish and retrace our steps through Marymoor Park. 

Let's meet at the East Lake Sammamish Trailhead (behind Whole Foods in Redmond) at 10:00 am for our pre-ride safety briefing and immediate departure.

This route is moderately hilly. We will climb and descend hills at our own pace, regrouping at the top of each hill and as needed to keep the group together.

Restrooms are available at the start. Please note there is no water at the trailhead (although Whole Foods is relatively close by in a pinch). We will stop along the way for restrooms/water at miles 12, 23 and 31. Bring money for lunch at Blazing Bagels in Belleuve. Other options are available nearby along Main St.

Bring a spare tube and tools to fix a flat, just in case. Please be sure to have fenders if the roads are wet.

Note: If weather conditions meet the weather cancellation criterion listed above or if there are unforeseen hazardous riding conditions or other unexpected events, the Ride Leader will post a ride-canceled note in the Comments section below at least two hours prior to the start and Ride Leader(s) will not be at the start location.

We hope you can join us!
