Spring Populaire 3/11/2017


Start the 2017 season with our 100 km Populaire Ride. Bring your friends, wives, husbands, boyfriends, girlfriends (or both).

Come ride with us and find out what randonneuring is about. The ride is free. Show up a bit early and we’ll give you a few pointers to help you use the route sheet as well. The ride will start and end in Seattle. Unlike many of our routes this really is an easy route.


Ride Summary:

This is a new route. We are trying to encourage and recruit new members so we tried to bypass the truly nasty hills of previous years. We have removed the longer, confusing section of the Interurban Trail.  It is a fun ride. You will need to pay attention to the cue sheet. There are great views of the sound and the Olympic Mountains. You’ll ride west to Golden Gardens, a bit of the Interurban Trail North, a delightful descent down Perkins Way, the Burke Gilman out to the Sammamish Trail to Redmond and back to Seattle with the inevitable climb back up to the top of Phinney Ridge. Finish at Zeeks Pizza.

This is an unsupported ride. You are expected to be able to be self-sufficient in the event you get a flat tire or need to  perform a routine repair on your bicycle.
