First we chose to ride up through Interlaken Park. It's an easy climb and worth it - like being in a forest far from the city. After the park we made our way down to Lake Washington Boulevard and a gorgeous ride along the lake shore. Pretty flat route too. I think it's part of the STP route.

We rode out to Seward Park our turn around point then returned along the same road. Stopped for lunch at a little deli ran by a very nice older gentleman.
Since it was getting late we decided on a more direct route home ... up and over the Central District/Capitol Hill area. Four or five big climbs ( and several little ones) we made it back to the apartment.
