Course Description:
We’ll start out from Sunset Elementary and ride counterclockwise around Lake Sammamish. When we get up to Marymore Park, we’ll get onto the Sammamish River Trail and head north to intersect the Burke Gilman Trail and then head down the west side of Lake Washington to the UW. We’ll continue down around the south end of the lake and then up the east side, cut over to Factoria, up the Honda hill, and back to Sunset Elementary. We’ll plan for two stops: the first at Log Boom Park in Kenmore and the second at Seward Park. We’ll also ride in pods of approximately eight bikes and adjust for pace at the stops.
