Beautiful lake views, long relatively flat stretches, different possible routes, make this an excellent ride. Need about 4 hours and can stop at various parks along the way for water. Perfect hot weather ride except during seafair when Lake Wa Blvd. closes. Must be in pretty good shape to truly enjoy. Includes Burke Gilman trail, Juanita blvd, Kirkland waterfront, downtown Bellevue, Kennydale (Seahawks trainging facility), Renton airport, Rainier Ave, Seward Park, Leschi, Arboritum, Husky Stadium.

It's a long ride relatively speaking but it is so convenient around the lake. It's got everything although there are some difficult car filled parts as in Renton but it gives such an amazing view of all things Seattle!

I keep thinking I should do this loop again. From 1994-2000 this was a common training route for me when I raced.
