Issaquah Alps 100K








On Sunday September 9, 2007 the Seattle International Randonneurs rode the Issaquah Alps 100K. This is a pretty tough 100K for a couple of reasons. First off, it's actually 111 kilometers long. But the extra distance isn't what makes it tough, it's the climbing. Back when Jan Heine and I originally cooked up this course, we wanted to incorporate the various mountains that make up the "Issaquah Alps", so we packed half a dozen big climbs into those 111 kilometers. And the course has a lot of flat riding, so the climbing is concentrated and has big climbs at the beginning and end. You can see the route sheet here:

Rene, Narayan, Matt, Ted and I worked the control check-points for the ride while everybody else rode it. It was a great day and even though I did get cursed a bit for my course design (the route has about twice as much climbing per kilometer as PBP, for example). Still, I think most folks enjoyed themselves.

Here are the results:
