Northeast Seattle to Maltby Cafe Route?

Does this seem ok for a Sunday morning ride? Any alternative routing suggestions?

Burke-Gilman to Sammamish River Trail to Wilmot Park to Woodinville-Snohomish Rd, turns into Rt. 9, right on Maltby Road. Eat big breakfast. Return home same way.

Thanks!

So you're supposed to check back on the website after you post a question? Turns out I forgot that part :-) Thanks for the route, I'll be sure to use it next time! Route 9 headwind was killer this morning.

Not entirely on topic, but our new warehouse facility is just around the corner from the Maltby Cafe, so now I'll have a reason to be there every Friday.

You better plan extra long rides for those days. I can never get out of that place without putting down what seems like 2000 calories. It's just too good.

SR-9 isn't so bad once you get used to riding on it. Next summer after a couple of rides with SiR, you'll be so used to riding on divided highways that a road like SR-9 seems like nothing more than a crowded day on the MUP.

+1, I've come to look at 9 as a scenic country road, at least the section between Snohomish & Sedro-Wooley.

Though the further south you are on it the more it sucks it seems.
