WTS 3: Bellevue, May Valley, Covington, Renton - January 20, 2018


Description: The 3rd of our 8 week Winter Training Series rides starts and ends at Bellevue's Newport Hills Park and Ride. This year's route is similar to last year's new route but keeps us mostly off the perennially busy Issaquah-Hobart Road. We will head east, first on May Creek Park Rd and then on May Valley to Issaquah Hobart but only for a few hundred feet as we turn up Tiger Mountain Road.  We return to Issaquah-Hobart but for less than 1-1/2 miles as we begin our zig-zag route to one of our favorite roads: Dorre Don and then through some neighborhoods to Covington.  We have routed you to Ristretto's Coffee, a delightful spot for those wanting a short break just over 1/2 way through the ride.  The return route takes us on Covington-Sawyer and Wax to 196th.  Jones Rd to the Cedar River Trail will take us back to Renton and Newport Hills Park & Ride.
