UPDATED DESCRIPTION OF RIDE:
Thursday we are doing another Christmas themed ride, this time on the Miller Peninsula. We will meet at the new Olympic Discovery Trail parking lot on Diamond Point Rd and start pedaling at 10:30. When you turn right, off of highway 101, onto Diamond Point Rd, the parking lot is about 100 yards on the left.
The route on the attached map is a basic concept. We will go cruise by Troll Haven to see if they are decorated for the Holidays, then continue out to the tip of the Miller Peninsula. There should be Christmas dingle balls hanging from the trees along Diamond Pt Rd. The route will take us back to the parking lot where we will ride the newest piece of the Olympic Discovery Trail over to the 7 Cedars Casino junction, stopping at the Longhouse Deli for coffee and a bite to eat.
The last piece will be over Chicken Coop Rd back to the cars. 2000 ft of elevation should keep us warm. If you haven't ridden any of this route make sure you come check it out!
Should be the last nice day before the rains return, so to quote Mr. Freddy Mercury, GET ON YOUR BIKES AND RIDE!

ORIGINAL RIDE DESCRIPTION - included just because it fits and why erase stuff?
New from Emma and Ted, this is one of those moments, “Hey! Remember when we saw all those Christmas Balls? Lets do that ride!”
Ted is the ride leader so you know its been well researched.
There is a new Oly Discovery Trail Parking Lot near our start point. Car Pool from Nelson Park in Poulsbo at 9 am. Ride at 10:00 Heavy rain cancels. Remember this is in the “rain shadow” of Sequim. Nutrition Alert. Pie is not always available, but cookies are always welcome as a snack or to share.
As a reminder you should not put milk or cocoa in your bottles. I’ve found marshmallows in the cocoa clogs the bite valve.
