BALLS - Snohomish Loop

Welcome to the BALLS series of Rides. BALLS - Ben Amy Loop Lake Sammamish! We'll be working to build the distance leading up to RSVP ride on August 18th.

Each one will introduce great east-side routes and some may even include challenging hills.

Join us this week for a 75 mile ride around Monroe and up to Snohomish that'll include a stop at a crepe and coffee place for a sit-down break. Most of the hills are in the first 50 miles and we'll wrap up with a loop around Sammamish to loosen up the legs.

Route: 75 miles, 2750 feet (Cue sheet
Meet at 8:15am
Wheels down at 8:30am

We will be keeping 15-17 on the flats and will regroup before major turns and top of hills. If you plan on riding faster or slower, please have the cue sheet or the route handy.
