Seattle Area SMT Ride, May 2012?

Post by KTM Island » Sat Jan 28, 2012 7:16 pm

Just testing for early interest in the Northwest for an SMT day-ride this spring.

Modcit (Marc) maybe you could plan a fun Cascade Mountains route? Or I could host a reprise of the West sound [Olympic Mountains) ride in 2010.

Reply to this post if you are intersted, then we can set a date.

Cheers.

I will try to make it but it is looking tough in May. As it gets closer I will have a better idea.

I will try to make it. Hard to plan that far out with a 2-year old at home though! :lol:

Sure, I've been riding all winter!
I'll keep an eye on this and see what happens by then.

OK, Thanks guys. I sent PMs to the members that appear to be in the Northwest US and SW Canada. I will PM the local members again when we get closer and have a date set.

Thanks Marc. Map out a fun route in the next month or so.

Super Bowl?...whatever. The weather is supposed to be perfect in the NW today and Sunday...I'm going for a ride.

Cheers.

I'm game. I've not really had a chance to stretch my SMT's legs yet.

I'd be interested in a Seattle area ride this spring. North from Whidby island, West, South, or whatever. I don't know exact dates yet, but a nice ride would be from Everett on the ferry to Port Townsend and ride some of the back areas towards Hurricane ridge, or across to Whidby, around the island, and up to Blain the back way. I've got a friend on a 690 SME, one on a Tenerey, and I can bring the SMR or the RC8.

OK, so this thread has been dormant since February. Time to wake it up!

The date for the Seattle area SMT ride is June 3, 2012. Because the NW weather has been crappy this spring, let's push into June to give it a chance to warm up...and dry up.

When:
Sunday, June 3, 2012, 9:45am....kickstands up at 10:30.

Where:
How about an easy to find meeting spot, at the gateway to the Cascades: XXX Root Beer Drive in, Issaquah, WA. About 18 miles east of downtown Seattle, just off Interstate 90, Gillman Blvd exit.

Where are we going:
Not sure yet, but Rainier is likely in the route. Marc (Modcit) is going to plan a loop route that will try to exploit the usefulness of the SMT. The route will be posted here. Probably an all-day ride.

Please respond in this thread if you are planning to ride with us. Also, if you have any road suggestions, send them along for consideration.

Marc PM me when you get a chance to discuss route options.

HAPPY SPRING!!

Everyone,
Please weigh-in on the ride date. At this point it is still flexible, but I think we have to limit the choices.

Express a preference for June 3 or June 10. Thanks.

The 3rd is a little better for me as I will likely be hungover on the 10th as that's the day after my birthday.

Despite the possibility of hangovers for some riders, the date for the 2012 Seattle area SMT ride is:

June 10.

A route map will be posted in a week or so, with confirmation of the meetup time and place. Plan for a full day. We will try to incorporate some good views and food/coffee spots in the mix. Hope to see a bunch of PNW / Western Canada SMT's come out.

Please respond to this thread to confirm your attendance, and ping any Northwest SMT riders to let them know.

Cheers.
