WTS 8 - Greater Seattle (Carol's) Century - February 24, 2018

E-mail

NOTE EARLY START! This is the final and longest ride in our eight-part Winter Training Series. The Greater Seattle Century (GSC) was the first century ever ridden by Ralph & Carol in the mid-1990's.  Designed by Carol (hence Carol's Century) takes you on a wide clockwise circle around Seattle with a variety of terrain with many flat stretches interrupted by a few steep hills. We start by heading north along the Burke-Gilman Trail to Bothell, then along mostly quiet back-country roads through Woodinville, Maltby, Carnation, Fall City, Issaquah and Maple Valley. The GSC then follows the Cedar River Trail to Renton and returns to Magnuson Park via Seward Park, Lake Washington Blvd. and the Burke Gilman Trail. There is a total of approximately 3,400 feet elevation gain from beginning to end.

Welcome to the 2018 Winter Training Series

E-mail

The 2018 Winter Training Series Returns January 6th! - Don't be left riding in the cold ...... on your own!  Starting out with short routes they gradually increase in length and/or difficulty (more elevation gain) over an eight week period.  They will be sure to get you ready for the 2018 Brevet Season!

Click here for the schedule.

Led again by Ralph Nussbaum with able assistance from Noel Howes and Ray Whitlock, the 20th edition of the WTS starts January 6th and will end just before the year's first official SIR Populaire (100km ride).  Co-hosted by the Cascade Bicycle Club, this is an eight ride series, with distances that vary from about 34 miles on our first ride to 100 miles on our last. For several years the weather gods hadn't been too kind to us but the last 2 years we got the full series in. Let's hope this trend holds! These rides are a great way to get in some early season training with a natural buildup of miles while enjoying the company of other riders. Winter riding is tough enough - this gives you a chance to do it with friends. You know what they say - misery loves company.
