Hi, long story short I plan on riding my fixed gear (48/17) to Sasquatch in the gorge via I-90 this thursday. This will be by far the longest ride I've done. I plan on sleeping in Cle Elem thursday night and continuing on to the gorge in the morning. I'm young and fit-ish, but the next longest ride I've taken is 20 miles (plan on doing 60 miles or so lapping the burke tomorrow). Will the pass kill me?
Are you aware of this: "Bicycle Alternate Route: I-90 is closed to bicycles in both directions between the Hyak interchange (Exit 54) and Stampede Pass interchange (exit 62) because there is no shoulder for bicycles to use. Bicyclists can use the John Wayne Pioneer Trail, weather permitting, as an alternate route." WSDOT - What's Happening on I-90 East of Snoqualmie Pass
