AAA Washington Headquarters
132nd Avenue Southeast
Factoria, WA 98006
2018 Brevet Schedule
Lights and reflective gear are required for this ride. At the start, have your front and rear lights on the bike and wear your reflective vest and ankle bands. We'll be checking for these supplies before you begin the ride.
Long ride on the shortest day of the year this year?
We are once again holding our Solstice Populaire (100km) on Friday night Dec 21.
Leave from AAA Headquarters in Factoria at 8:00 PM. See Christmas lights in Bellevue, Renton, Maple Valley, Issaquah, Redmond and Woodinville. Over half of the route is on trails including Cedar River, Eastside Rail Corridor, East Lake Sammamish, and Sammamish River. There will be cookies at the start, and a warm-up control about 20 miles along in Maple Valley.
Preregistration is open until Wednesday evening Dec 19. Your early preregistration helps the organizers plan their baking. There is no fee for this ride, and no membership is required.
Lights and reflective gear are required, however.
