Oh, and one tip, if you want to get to the start line by car and avoid the horrendous line on 45th. Drive your car down 65th to 35 Ave NE and then head South to the 5-way intersection, this way you jump ahead in the line on the turn Mary Gates Way. I happen to live out that way, so its the way I go anyway
Access from Mary Gates Way is closed for construction. http://www.cascade.org/eandr/STP/pdf/start_line_detour_2009.pdf

Ah, I forgot about that. Though I would still come around on 65th to 35th to 45th heading west...

Everyone involved: Have a good time! I had a blast with it last year, even though it was insane crazy hot and we got stuck at the train just past Centralia.
There's not much better than rolling into the park at PDX and hearing your name over the loudspeaker after 14 hrs on the road.

Hey all, good luck. It's a great ride. Wish I were there.
For all you first time riders, that hill is nothing to worry about. It just isn't very long.
