Puyallup Cyclopaths

I found a local cycling club – The Puyallup Cyclopaths

They put out a schedule of weekend rides, though this starts in May and is mostly for routes in the currently snowy passes around Mt. Rainier that will be open later in the season. I caught news of the club on Strava, commented on a ride, and pretty quickly had multiple emails welcoming me to the area!

The route up Mowich Lake Road proved to be a great ride with a good view, and Leon led the way and was good company.

My second ride with someone from the club was with Mike to his infamous “Climb” route which is a 5-mile climb. Apparently they often meet there to do hill repeats, going up and down the same path a few times to get some extra climbing in. I’ve never done hill repeats, nor would I normally seek them out, but to have company on a ride and enjoy the views made it worthwhile.

    Those pictures make me a little jealous. While you ride in the beautiful Pacific NW I’m sitting out yet another 10 cm of snow…
