Any info on whether it’s level or hilly?

Some hills

One section of stair step climbs on the 15 mile loop section north of the lake. I have ridden the stair step climbs with out a stop or break on a 36 with 150 cranks. The road has very little traffic. Nice, pleasant rural mountain valley ride.

Hey Bungeejoe, do you coker? A few of us are planning on doing a loop ride tomorrow in your area. Will start and finish in Edison, going counter-clockwise around Chuckanut Mountain so we can do north-to-south on Chuckanut Drive. Estimated distance about 30-35 miles, and you’re probably already familiar with the general level of climbing to get from Old Samish up to top of Chuckanut. If you’re equipped and interested, PM me with your e-mail address if interested, and we can add you to the email thread we have going with the ride details.

Elevation gain

The 22 mile long course has about 500+ total elevation gain, so it’s a very ride able course for all levels. The Stairs has several short, steep sections spread out over 1.5 miles. It’s not as difficult as the map looks. The 7 mile short course does not include the Stairs portion of the 22 mile long course.

Getting better, but still slower …

Only one unicycle again this year, Semcycle 43, long course, 22 miles, some mild wind, just short of 1:50 for an average speed of 12 mph. My slowest time of the last three years.

Some day maybe I’ll have some competition for the last place finish.
