Washougal Starbucks parking lot just off of Hwy 14 at:
291 C St
And now, for something slightly different - a ride with a pronounceable name. Allow me to introduce you to "The Lorelei". This ride is a short 32.1 mile warm up with hardly any climbing at all. Ha! Did you really think I'd offer a flat ride? :-) The Lorelei tops out at just over 2,700 feet.
After the usual ups and downs and 4.2 miles on Washougal River Rd we'll turn right and do one of my favorite climbs - SE 17th road up to the top of Blair. Once there, it's all down hill to the finish - except for a few more little climbs.

PS - As always, this ride will take place regardless of the weather. Well, unless it gets just too darn warm or the sun is too bright.
