Description: The 2nd of our 8 week Winter Training Series rides starts and ends in Newcastle Beach Park (Bellevue). This year's route is a total revamp, in essence reversing the previous years' route with some significant changes. This time we will head east, first on May Creek Park Rd and then on May Valley to Issaquah Hobart from which we will do a little side route. Eventually we'll make our way to Dorre Don and through some neighborhoods to Covington. I have routed us to Ristretto's Coffee, a delightful spot for those wanting a short break just over 1/2 way through the ride. The return route takes us on Covington-Sawyer and Wax to 196th. Jones Rd to the Cedar River Trail will take us back to Renton and Newcastle Beach Park. Please help out the Ride Leaders by Pre-Registering at: https://www.cascade.org/node/39532
