So riding back from the Lake Whatcom/Mt Baker Sunday (8/11), Robert from Seattle Riders talked about a trip he did where the group stayed over in Quinault. I had just recently put together Olympic Peninsula Loop route to check off some of my Destination Highways roads off the 101 - so it's seems kismet and this ride's meant to be.
We'll be staying at the Rain Forest Resort Village. Check in is @ 3PM. The plans' the check in early and just hang out for the afternoon/evening before a 6 hr day of riding Sunday. Robert and I have already booked rooms. Post comments to let us know if you'd like to share. Details:
• Claudette's: Cabin 18 - comes with 2 queen beds, full kitchen, lake view, outside seating. Cost is $190 (including tax) for the night, so ~$47.50 per person for 4.
• Robert's: 2-Queen bedroom suite, bottom floor far west pair of rooms. $65 is your share.
Plan to take the 10:10am Fauntleroy ferry (arrive around 9:45am, advised getting ticket online to avoid going over to the terminal) and riding from Southworth to avoid I-5 over the Shelton then up the 101 to Quinault. From there on Sunday continue up through Fork, detouring to Ozette Lake, then the 112 to 101 to the Kingston ferry.
Can also add an extra meeting point for south end riders to join us. Please post suggestions. Thinking somewhere in Shelton would be good.
Guests and all levels welcome. We'll split into groups again based on ride style so everyone can ride their own ride and have a blast!!
