From our friends at WABI Burien:

WABI Burien Weekday Bikers will cycle along the eastern portion of the Cedar River Trail on Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2023.

We plan to meet a little before 10 a.m. at the Cedar River Trail parking area immediately across the street from Foley’s Produce stand (21419 Renton-Maple Valley Rd in Maple Valley; map below).

  • Cycling east along the cascading Cedar River, we will pass through virgin forests showing their early autumn colors in the surrounding canopy.
  • We cycle over 8 bridges including four paved historic railroad trestle bridges.
  • At trail’s end, we will visit the Landsburg Fish Ladder to witness migrating salmon swimming upstream.
  • The total distance is 11.3 miles on mixed hard-packed gravel and paved trail.
  • Expected duration: 90-100 minutes.

All participants will need to bring their own bike, a bike safety helmet, and are expected to follow safety guidelines as outlined in the Ride Smart Biking tips.  We also advise all bikers to bring: water for hydration, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a small snack (granola bar, dried fruit, nuts, etc).
