WTS 8: Greater Seattle (Carol’s) Century - Feb. 25 CANCELLED DUE TO FLOODING


Description: We again conclude this year's Winter Training Series with a full century. The Greater Seattle Century (GSC) 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 backcountry roads through Woodinville, Maltby, Carnation, Fall City, Issaquah and Maple Valley. The GSC then follows the Cedar River Trail to Renton and returns to Gas Works via Seward Park and Lake Washington Blvd. There is a total of approximately 3,300 feet elevation gain from beginning to end.
