Anyone doing any of the organizedSeattle-area rides this weekend?
Lots of organized rides this weekend -- Ride Artist Point 150; Tour de Kitsap; Tour de Peaks; Seattle Century.
Anybody here going to do any of these?
Assuming successful completion of my planned spouse/rider negotiations, I will be on Tour de Peaks Sunday morning.
hey benge, tour de peaks sounds like fun.
there's a 200k brevet in the tahuya area (peninsula) on saturday, that's where i'll be!
and next thursday is the big RAMROD. doing that one too!
I might do the TDP. I saw their Dan Henrys out last Sunday when I was on the Mill Pond Rd. detour of the Snoqualmie Valley Trail.
Tour de Kitsap 100 sounds nicer, just less convenient.
FYI, I did the Tour de Peaks ride on Sunday. I did the "metric century," which consisted of two loops that ended up totaling 66 miles.
This was really a pretty nice ride -- with the cool, wettish weather, it was about the easiest way to ride 66 miles I could imagine. It wasn't at all crowded, and the organization was very good. Good rest stops; mechanics at several stops; pretty decent food, and entertainment at the end of the ride.
One notable thing -- this is one of the few rides I've done that offered breakfast at the start (bagels, muffins, fruit, juice, coffee). Very nice touch.
