I'm a new member, and am super excited about an upcoming ride I'll be taking. l'll be looping clockwise around the ACA Washington Parks Route, beginning July 20 from Seattle, and returning to Seattle about August 12, about 1030 miles. I'm planning to hit a lot of State Parks, National Forest and Park campgrounds, with some warmshowers and hotel sprinkled in for good measure. I've got a good grasp on the route and accomodations available, and will be trying to get up to speed physically over the next couple of months. I'm looking for companions for the trip and for anyone in Madison, WI who wants to do some riding with a slow, loaded bike partner, let's do it! I'd love to share details about the route with you. Cheers!
