Typical Coker rides

I’ve been riding a 4.5 mile loop on Bainbridge Island. The terrain is hilly
Cedar and Douglas Fir forest. I usually see 3 or 4 cars. The roads are paved.

The hills make the ride challenging. There are several good climbs and two
descents that are right at the limit of my capabilities. By the time I get back
it is not uncommon for my legs to be shaking.

I’ve been trying to do this loop every other day.

My hope is to organize the local Coker riders to ride down from Snoqualmie
Summit (where last summer’s NUC off road events were held) on the
“rails-to-trails” gravel trail this summer. We could organize a car shuttle, and
have a very fun 30 to 40 mile ride–all gradually down hill.

Or I suppose we could ride it uphill…
