Come ride the Issaquah Alps! We promise that this ride is harder, steeper, and stupider than any ride on the Eastside.

There are two shorter options for slightly smarter riders. The full ride features four climbs of 1000' or more, and some of the best views in the area.

is not to ride…

...just plain sadistic. Well done.
