Bikes and BBQs at the ready this weekend

June 28, 2013 by  

Residents of the local community will get the opportunity to discover the two-mile tunnel that travels through the Snoqualmie Pass tomorrow.

Featuring an eerie, cool darkness, it is likely that poster printing, banner printing, and flyer printing have been used to make the Snoqualmie Tunnel Bike Ride and BBQ known to the people in this area.

The bike excursion takes off in the morning with a meet-up at Rattlesnake Lake, where participants will catch a shuttle service with their bikes and be transported to the Snoqualmie Pass. Once there, guests will make their way along the two-mile path and enjoy the John Wayne Pioneer Trail back to Rattlesnake Lake, which is a 20-mile downward ride that features some historic and educational stops on the way.

After the bike ride, participants will enjoy a well-earned BBQ to celebrate completing their mission. In order to do this ride, all bikers must wear road helmets and have their own bike. Mountain bikes are recommended, as the trail has a fair bit of packed gravel, and they should be equipped with a headlight. Parking is free at the State Park Parking Lot.

The cost is $25 per person, and the pedals will be in motion tomorrow, June 29, from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm at Rattlesnake Lake located at 19901 Cedar Falls Road SE in North Bend, Washington, just down the road from Seattle. To learn more about this bike ride, or to register, please visit the Mountains of Sound Greerway website or call 206-382-5565, extension 28.
