Let's do a monthly long ride together! This month, we'll start with a relatively flat ride out to Redmond Town Center or Issaquah and back. We'll have two groups so that we can cater to different abilities. Fast (17+ mph) and long group will do a bit over 50 miles out past RTC + a lap around Lake Sammamish, with a coffee/pit stop at Tully's in Issaquah . Slow (~14 mph) and short group will go to RTC and back for a bit over 30 miles, with a stop at RTC Starbucks. Ride starts and ends at Elliott Bay Brewery, so we'll avoid the bumpy parts of BG trail . Both groups should get back at a reasonably similar time. Heavy rain will cancel the ride. Of course, we'll do post-ride drinks/lunch at Elliott Bay!
Since this is an out and back route, please make sure to STAY WITH THE GROUPS on the way out, but you are welcomed to ride at your own speed back.
