    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.

    http://www.bikingbis.com/blog/_WebPa...ngtonjuly.html

    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.

    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.
