The roads in the Carnation valley are flooded, more rain is expected; do we cancel? No, we head to the hills! I'm posting a reroute that includes a climb to Ames Lake. Bring your fenders and water bike, you know you want to do this!!
An early season ride in the rain finishing at RedHook Brewery- what could be better? (Bad decisions make great stories)
Revised RideWithGPS here
Cue sheet and RideWithGPS were updated at 8:20 pm after pre-driving the modified route. The change - after the control at mile 25.6 take 202 all the way to Ames Road.
This is an early season ride starting in Woodinville and wandering around Lake Sammamish and Carnation before finishing up at Redhook.
We ride south on the Sammamish river trail, down the east side of Lake Sammamish before climbing to the Issaquah Highlands. After a quick decent into the valley we go right by Sandy's in Carnation we climb up to Ames Lake on our way to Snohomish.l From there we head north on the Centennial trail to the Bryant store, our northern most point. On the way back we go back through Snohomish before climbing Broadway on our way back to Woodinville and the finish at the Redhook Brewery.

Notes: Issaquah Highlands - Many mapping programs have not kept up with the recent construction in the Highlands, approx. mile 32. At that point in the ride it is easier connecting with Issaquah Highlands drive if you take a right onto the footbridge over Issaquah Highlands Drive, cross Discovery Drive and then join Issaquah Highlands Drive. If you are not familiar with that area, we suggest that you take a look at the area online at https://firstname.lastname@example.org,-122.0187522,76m/data=!3m1!1e3
