Ahoy buddies, join me on the date and time above for 26 miles of great, grand and glorious non-stop cycling in the beautiful, bewitching and bucolic alps of Washougal.
Today's ride will begin with an a flat 3.9 mile warm up before the intoxication of the climb commences. Besides the piddling and annoying minor rises in the road, this ride will feature two outright and honest climbs and one hairy eyeball decent. Climb the first is 3.3 miles and 815 feet. With climb the second being 3.4 miles and 732 feet. Oh, and I almost forgot, 6 miles of Washougal River Rd. We'll finish the ride with just over 2,000 feet of climbing.
A map of the ride is available at: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/324656 . Again, I have spared no expense to produce a detailed cue sheet that is (IMHO) quite suitable for framing and will rapidly become a collectors item (if not a fought over souvenir). And again, if you know the area, you'll know there are plenty of bail out points, should you decide that sustained tachacardia just isn't something you're inclined towards. See all of y'all there.

PS - This ride will occur regardless of the weather, the political situation in North Africa or direction of the tide.
