Greetings from Seattle!

Hi,

I'm re-entering cycling after an, erm, ~40 year hiatus. I hit 60 in 6 months time and have entered to do a century the day after my 60th birthday, so I'll be looking for lots of advice on building it up.

I'm located near Seattle, in the Duvall area to be more precise. I joined the Cascade biking club but would love to know more about other clubs etc in the area.

Cheers,

- Mark

Welcome! Duvall is a nice area for riding. I can’t help with clubs other than Cascade, but I am sure you’ll find a way to get the miles in for your century. :-)

You can ride a trail to Carnation, NorthBend, Snoqualmie Pass, and beyond.
No sweat getting in the miles, if the rain stops.

I'm between Issaquah & Renton Highlands - Cougar Mt - Coalfield area.
