Let's meet at Sam Smith Park and please be ready to ride at 9am.  I’ll start with a required safety briefing, and we’ll roll out when that's done.

We'll pick up riders at Enatai Beach Park (under east end of I-90 east channel bridge) at 9:30, then pick up riders at Tibbetts Park in Issaquah at 10:00.  We’ll climb and descend Squak, and then climb Zoo Hill and descend via Montreaux.  We’ll then head west to climb Horizon View, descending to Forest Dr, and then climb Sommerset.  We’ll finish with a spirited lap around Mercer Island.  There will be no specific food stop on this ride, so 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. 

If ride is canceled due to showers prior to the start, it will be posted in Comments by 7:00 am and ride leader will not be waiting at the gathering points.
