Looking for a nice 8-9 hour day ride from Seattle/Eastside area but I just cant decide where. Considering do the 3 Pass Blast (Snoqualmie, Blewett and Stevens) with backroads again, but there are so many other places to go where I havent been or havent been often. Really want to ride more in Eastern WA, like the Palouse area, Okanogan Highlands are even the Spokane/NE WA but thats getting to the 10-12hr range, not including stops/food breaks. Already planning a 2 day Cascade Loop for this month and up around Bellingham/Chuckanut Drive/Hwy 9/G&S Grande Rd area. Ive done Tulip Country so often along with the Kitsap Pen and Whidbey. Would like to go south like along the Columbia River/Volcano region and South Coast and like the roads around Mima Mounds and Bucoda Hills/Chehalis area, just dont like the always present traffic in the Tacoma area on the way back. So what are your favorite areas? Might inspire me to revisit or rethink some areas. Thanks.
