Clubs and Group Rides in Washington State?(2 posts)

Clubs and Group Rides in Washington State?Swat Dawg
Dec 12, 2003 1:43 AM
I am going to be heading back home for my Christmas break from school, and I'm bring my bike so I don't lose the three weeks of training like I did last year. Since I got into riding while was on the other coast for school, I don't know any clubs or group rides out in WA. Anybody got some ideas for rides that would work for a Cat 4 aspiring Cat 3, who has done plenty or rides with everybody from Cat 5 to 1. I did grow up over there so I know my way around, but it would be great to have some folks to ride with, especially in that WA rain. BTW, I will be stationed out of Puyallup, so Tacoma and Seattle rides are pretty easy to get to. Much further than that and it gets tough, but I'm willing to go almost anywhere. This may be asking to much in one post, but I wanted to do a lot of climbing while I'm out there and was wondering how the roads are going up to Mt. Rainier? Snowy, icy, crazy back-country yay-hoo drivers? You don't have to answer all of that if you don't want, just hit me up with what you know. Thanks for the help.

Swat: Try the Cascade Bicycle Club: They are the biggest club in the Northwest. Mt. Ranier this time of year is not rideable, but most everywhere else is. Bring your raingear!
