8 lakes update

Rode The 8 Lakes Leg Aches Yestrday, What A Ride! After Doing The 30 Mile Route Last Year, I Decided To Try 50 This Year And Man Am I Glad! My Longest Ride In 20 Years And I Made It! ( Im Back!) If You Have Never Done This Ride, You Are Really Missing Out! The Routes Were Laid Out Really Well And The Roads Were In Great Shape Too. The Scenery Was Just Beautiful! You Couldnt Resist Stopping Just To Look. Ride Support Was Super With Well Stocked Rest Stops, Mechanical Support And The Cma Patroling Each Route Start To Finish. Medical Support Riding With You, The Whole 9 Yards, They Thought Of Everything! The Organizers? The Best! I Met The Leader Of The Whole Show For 5 Min Last Year And When She Saw Me She Greeted Me Like A Dear Friend! I Love Thisride! You Will Too. Grab Some Friends And Car Pool, Bring A Bunch! Come See Us In Spokane Next Year!

Glad you had a great time. I actually ended up driving part of the route this last week as part of my wonderings. I was down by Marshall and had to get to Medical Lake. It was nice down by the lake. I wish there was a map online so I could see the routes. I'm not sure if I could do 50, but the 30 should soon be within my grasp.

This is a great ride. I did the 50 again this year. It's a very doable 50 miles, actually 45 miles according to my Garmin. Weather was great and you can't beat Davids Pizza and Ben and Jerrys ice cream when it all done! LAB

I was thinking of doing the 50 mile ride solo this next week. Is it very hilly, any advice. Where does the course start at?
