A classic late-winter RCC ride from Renton to Black Diamond and back. (March 11th)
This RCC classic ride goes back a couple of decades but received a name change after a very cold winter day. To learn the rest of the story, you're going to have to ride it and talk to an old-timer. Leaving the Cedar River Park near Renton and 405, this route will take you East before heading South to Black Diamond. After a lunch at the Black Diamond Bakery, it's time to turn around and make the return using the Soos Creek Trail.
