Welcome! Most the real fun roads are starting to get iced over or covered with wet leaves. Still possible but weather is starting to play a roll.

Where abouts in the Seattle area are you? Not sure if its still happening for the year yet but be sure to look into Backfire down in Ballard. Third Wednesday every month that the fair weather riders ride. Thousandish bikes, surrounded by breweries. Always a good time.

Most the really good roads youll find in a group, I think people are hesitant on posting them online so they dont get too crowded.

Lots of places to see and good places to eat. Coffee is well worth a good riding trip for out here too.

I think SUB and Backfire are both done for the year.

It's not much of a ride, but you're missing out if you haven't ridden the Viaduct and looked out over the city late at night.

Take a ferry, come over and ride the peninsula. Good riding over here. A lot of us ride year around over here. We have a bike meet ever first Sunday of the month. Check out details under the Kitsap section.

Me = idiot.
Went for a late night jaunt couple nights ago on a whim. It was around 10 p.m. heading out to White Pass. The fog was thick, the elk were plentiful, and the cold was nippy. I ended up doing a 100 out then turned around to come back 508. I'll make time to hit those during the noon hours from now on.

Yeah, bit nippy this time of year, especially towards a ski resort, lol.

Late at night is a good time to explore downtown Seattle or Mercer Island, the bridges, tunnels, ect. are all amazing when no one is on the roads. Some of my best rides when I moved out here where on them at midnight on a Wednesday.

Be a bit mindful of your speed on unknown roads around here, for example there is a corner on High Bridge when you're half way through it that had a good section of straightaway before it that just begging to be burned through and that corner is so sharp that it should probably have a stop sign on it. You don't catch it till you're right on it though.

If the yellow signs say 15, you're probably ok, if they say 10 slow down, if they say 5 assume you're coming to a complete stop.

And watch for slick spots, the mountains can block areas from the sun just right and you'll find some nice black ice if you're near any mountains or rivers. Especially right now with the leaves falling, when the rain hits them they become very slick.
