<p><b>Fidalgo Island, Mt Eerie, North Whibdey Island</b></p>
<p></font><font face="Arial" size="2">
We're offering 5 different options that will suit riders of all levels from 36
mile and 2100 ft loop to challenging 118 mile 6200 ft route including two climbs
of the steep fabulous Mt Eerie.</font></p>
<p><font face="Arial" size="2">
You will not want to miss this ride. The scenery is spectacular, and there will
be plenty of challenge whether you're training for distance (i.e STP), for
Hills, or for both. </font></p>
<p><font face="Arial" size="2">
We will guide at the Moderate, Brisk, High Brisk and Strenuous paces. Each loop
are easy to shortcut, and as we park in between the two loops, your car is never
too far. </font></p>
<p><b><a class="contentnav2" href="../ride/ride_mt_eerie_map.shtml">Maps</a> and Itinerary:</b>
<li>Route 1 - 36 miles/2100 ft - Fidalgo Island (fully guided - moderate, brisk, high brisk and strenuous)
<li>Route 2 - 40 miles/3000 ft - Fidalgo Island + Mt. Eerie (fully guided - moderate, brisk, high brisk and strenuous)
<li>Route 3 - 71 miles/3000 ft - Fidalgo Island + N Whidbey (fully guided - moderate; other paces can easily return on their own)
<li>Route 4a - 97 miles/4600 ft - Fidalgo Island + N Whidbey Loop (fully guided - brisk, high brisk and strenuous)
<li>Route 4b - 101 miles/5400 ft - Fidalgo Island + Mt. Eerie + N Whidbey Loop (fully guided - brisk, high brisk and strenuous)
<li>Route 5 - 116 miles/6200 ft - Fidalgo Island + Mt. Eerie + N Whidbey Loop + Mt. Eerie (fully guided - high brisk and strenuous).</li>
<p>Heavy rain cancels/group decision in case of drizzle/light rain—if enough riders don’t mind getting wet, we will lead the ride in a drizzle or light rain. Unless this ride was changed the day before, strenuous riders will at least do the Fidalgo
and Mt. Eerie climb, even with heavy rain. We will email everyone on our list
with updates and, in case of forecasted heavy rain, we may offer a ride closer
to Seattle and keep this gorgeous ride for a dryer day. Check our website for
updates prior to the ride.</p>
<p><font face="Arial" size="2">
RSVP is not required, but suggested in case we change the ride on this day due
to inclement weather. (If the forecast announces heavy rain a couple of days in
advance, we may do a shorter ride in the Seattle area). Check our site for
updates, or better yet, RSVP (this also helps us print the number of cue sheets
needed). </font></p>

This is the second ride of our new training series for the Native Planet Classic
and RAMROD. The June 11 <a href="">Native Planet Classic</a>
super-century may very well be Washington’s most challenging, supported road
cycling event. (The alternative shorter metric century is also challenging and a
great training for RAMROD and STP). </p>
