Mike, Jeff, Denny, Noriko, Ralph, Gus (with his new custom Soma bikepacking machine), Wayne, John, Riva, Pam (with her beautiful new Rodriguez), Liam, Barbara, Merilyn and Arnie met at the Montlake Triangle on a cool grey drizzly morning and headed east on the 520 trail to Marymoor Park. We headed south on the recently completed East Lake Samammish Trail and somewhere on the way to Issaquah Coffee Co., we picked up Ben. After a stop for coffee and snacks, we climbed Newport Way back to the I-90 Trail, rode across "bumpy swamp" and under I-90 on 108th NE. We worked our way through the traffic in Old Bellevue on Main then through Medina and back to the UW via the 520 trail. Roughly 44 miles covered and 2,000 feet of elevation gain. It was great to see you all!
