Cultus Lake ride – Century #3Posted by Rob DeMone
Our third century training ride in preparation for the Seattle to Portland Classic July 14.
Weather was cool, and the course was dry for the most part – though we did hit some heavy mist for a couple miles near Cultus Lake.
I hadn’t been to Cultus in about 15 years, and man has it ever changed up there. Big props for the new, paved road from Vedder Road right to Cultus, including a nice bike lane.
Plenty of riders on the way back along Vye Road and especially 0 Avenue – we didn’t see anyone on the way out, but starting at 6 a.m. will do that.
The power of the group ride was evident again – we maintained an average moving speed near 20 mph for the first 4 hours.
After more than 210 miles last week, we drop down this week for recovery – a total 150 miles on the schedule, with 30 Saturday and 70 Sunday.
Just 33 sleeps until STP…
