31 March

Ok so if I come out of my cast before the 31st of March I want to ride to the races in Kent, a friend is woring a corner that day (part of being a novice hehe) and afterwards maybe ride greenriver road or what ever it is called.

green valley rd is pretty lame unless you're doing 120-140mph. most of the turns are sweepers.

only a few good kinks... and a couple of bridges i like to get air off of.

just saying it's overrated. there are much better roads around the way near snoqualmie falls.

you take green valley at 120+? the speed limit is like 35! i never go over 45 on that road cuz its just not safe at anything over that. there are some nice roads up around snoqualmie and it is just a short highway 18 ride away from pacific raceways.

no way!

i just assume it would be more exciting at 3 to 4 times my regular pace... but obviously for riders who are much more skilled than i.

green valley is a pretty fast paced road. i dont like it cuz of all the people living on it and the number of bikes that rail the shit out of it. i know the locals hate us and that never seems to play out well... highbridge, ben howard, and now green valley.
