The classic Lake Washington loop is something I have never attempted but looking at the bikely version I see that it is only 2250 ft of climbing. I can do that, my 26 mile commute route is 2000 ft of climbing, so 2250 over 54 miles shouldn't be too horrible. Russell suggested this route so I will meet him as it passes my Condo and accompany him on a little over half the route, he will leave me to slog up Queen Anne hill and I will then ride the rest of the way around the BG trail to slog up Finn Hill on Juanita Dr.
This will probably take 5 hours of riding but I won't need the car so I don't have to strand Kristin. I will need to pack a lunch and snacks. Lets see how this goes.
