Fit & Fun
Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer, opens the door for serious rural bicycle riding around the region. Flying Wheels Summer Century celebrates by offering various distance courses and a festival on Saturday, May 31.
One course takes riders on a 23-mile loop around Lake Sammamish and through Bellevue with a few rolling hills and no major climbs. Other routes are from 41 to 96 miles long and hilly.
Riders are advised to peruse the routes before taking on the challenges. Route maps show shortcuts to get back to Marymoor Park, where it all starts.
