Cool

Here's some top picks for rides in the Evergreen State:
The North Cascades Highway.
Chuk-A-Nut Drive
Highway 101: the Olympic Penninsula Loop
Hurricane Ridge

The 101 loop on the Olympic Peninsula is great on a weekday. Weekends (especially summer) suck with traffic.

One of the best rides I've found has been from Port Angeles to Neah Bay. I think it's Hwy 109 or maybe 108.

Seattle area folks - let's get together this summer.

It doesn't have to be fun to be "fun".

Thumbs up Here's another...

I recommend a stretch of road that's about 16 miles long.

Highway 101 between South Bend and Long Beach, after crossing the Nemah River. I don't know the condition of the road now, but a few years ago, it was incredible. Perfectly banked turns, good pavement, definitely one of my all-time favorites.

The added bonus was I had an Uncle who was a Pacific County Sheriff!

Unhappy local rides

I heard that last year some of the areas around 101 were washed out when the storms shot through there. I hope the roads are ok. My bud and I are planning a ride down it when the sun hits for the summer.

The ride from Morton over White Pass to Yakima is a good one...best done during a weekday when traffic is thinner. Great views of Mt. Rainier.
