Date 1s Aug
Seattle to Snoqualmie Valley
1st day of the cycle is our shortest day of the entire cycle! We had to go to the bike shop for 10 o’clock to get our bikes and pick up our gear. We met Sean our tour guide for the 1st day! He kindly agreed to direct us to Samananash Park where the Irish American Heritage association were hosting a party. We arrived to a heroes welcome with everyone cheering and being very supportive!. We stayed for the BBQ and played a bit of hurling before jumping back on our bikes and heading for Snoqualmie Valley. The IAHA were very friendly and welcoming. We just want to say thanks for the great welcome.
From Samananash to Snoqueline Valley we got a little lost and ended up adding about
20km onto our original journey plan. After some tasty climbs and Schlek/Contidor climbing from the lads we finally made it to Snoqualmie Valley. We got a great welcome from the Salish Lodge Hotel.
