Labor Day Black Diamond - Green River Valley Loop (Renton/Low Brisk)

For Labor Day, I thought I'd re run this very popular ride for those that missed it last time.  This is easily one of the most beautiful rides in the area and one of the most popular.  

We will ride high moderate to low brisk.  When on any multi-use trail, we will slow to conform to the posted trail speed limit.

We start at Old Renton City Hall.  We'll head up the Cedar River Trail over to the Black Diamond Bakery for coffee and baked goods.  We'll return by riding on Green Valley Road through beautiful horse country until we get to the Interurban Trail to take us back to Renton.  This ride is mostly flat and always beautiful.  A really fun ride!  Ride leader mentoring available.  Fenders appreciated if wet weather is indicated.

Note: The start is Old Renton City Hall, NOT Ron Regis as indicated on the Ride With GPS map.  

I will not be at the ride start should conditions be as noted in “Weather Cancels” above. I will announce the cancellation in the comments section below at least 2 hours prior to the ride start and will monitor my phone and/or email listed in the Contact information. If you have questions about the weather, please call (or email) before you leave for the ride.

MOSTLY FLAT

    Curious about pace. Brisk is 16-18. High-mod to low-brisk sounds more like 15-17. Just looking for clarification so I know if it's a pace I can keep up with. Thanks!

      15-17 is more like it.

      August 26, 2014

  • Bill W.

    Alan, is the start time for this 52 mile ride really 7 p.m.?

    August 26, 2014

    • Alan L.

      No, 9am. Sorry.
