Hwy 20 therapy ride

Riding over to Winthrop on Saturday June 30th via Hwy 20.
Meetup at the shell in Deming at 8:30am. KSU at 8:30 sharp!
This will be a semi mellow ride. Lunch options can be discussed along the way.
Should have a decent turn out! This will be one for the books folks!!

Sorry about the date change ladies and gents.

Consider taking 9 south to a right on Upper Samish Rd. Right on Prarie Rd to F & S Grade Rd into Sedro, go thru roundabouts on 20 a sharp right onto S to Skagit Hwy on south side of river all the way to the Y to Concrete, stay right onto Concrete Sauk Valley Rd., at the end with sharp left hairpin over bridge/river, head N. on Hwy 530 Rockport/Darrington, turn right at Rockport Cascade Rd, dumping you back into MM to get gas/food if needed.

Beats the heck out of the drone on 20 + Leo's, from Sedro to MM. Maybe you already know this route...it's good one, but a 1st time group ride may have issues with the unfamiliar road.

We rode that one on the Arlington ride a couple weekends back. There's a better road you missed on the way to S.Skagit Highway though...

From Hwy 9, consider taking Knapp Rd. to Gunderson Rd. to Beaver Lake Rd into Clear Lake where you can then take Old Day Creek Rd. to So. Skagit Hwy to Concrete-Sauk Valley Rd. to Hwy 530 into Rockport where you then pick up Hwy 20.

That wasn't it either (but sounds good).
FYI, you can ride the south side all the way to Marblemount!

I'm liking the sound of that. A lot.
Looking forward to some of that myself.

Glad to see you guys are still posting up rides! I've been gone for awhile. I'd join you on this ride but I work weekends now. Ride safe.

Good to see you're still around...I was getting worried about ya.
(Welp, I'm not getting much saddle time myself these days. I suppose I should be worried about me too!)

I miss the the Ridge too! I didn't go at all last year! I'm really trying for a couple dates in aug and sept but it really depends if I get hired on with a new agency and whether they will accommodate the days I want off.
