The 3rd of our 9 week Winter Training Series rides starts and ends at Bellevue's Newport Hills Park and Ride. This year's route is the same as last year's new route which keeps us mostly off the perennially busy Issaquah-Hobart Road. We first head south through Renton and out the Cedar River Trail. From there it's up 196th to Covington and Maple Valley to Hobart. Then up Tiger Mountain Road from the south and back via Maple Valley and May Creek Park Roads to Newcastle. Along the way we follow a short stretch of the unpaved section of the Cedar River Trail onto one of our favorite roads: Dorre Don. There's the requisite Starbucks stop at mile 30. If that's too early for you, there's the Hobart Market at mile 38.
