good luck with that. i don't think you can avoid traffic anywhere between b'ham & olympia.SoloRider said:I'm planning on riding my bike home from Monroe on Sunday and I'm looking for the best way to get to the Burke-Gilman while avoiding traffic, I can find my way home pretty well from there.
I actually only ended up riding back from Woodinville but I did get a chance to scout that route and it seems pretty good. The whole purpose of the trip was to return a borrowed truck to a friend and we ended up going out for breakfast in Woodinville and it ended up shaving a good 13 miles off my ride, good thing too because I forgot to bring water.Borneo said:I second Monroe to Duvall and then over the Woodinville-Duvall Road. Yes, there's traffic. I've used both directions for commuting from Duvall over the years. South from Monroe to the county line is pretty wide but after that It can get hairy. Another option is to take the Tualco road over to West Snoqualmie Valley Road to the Woo-Du. Lower speeds but a bunch more road with narrow shoulder. At least people are more used to seeing roadies over there.
