    And really want to go to Stonehenge. Wife and I have the day off so....I made a map that looks really fun. Never been this way so looking for advice on how this route would be. Right now it's at 4 hours there...gonna have monkey butt for sure!

    HAHA! I know right? Wife says it's open to any other takers.
     
  7. Got a couple of stop suggestions if you weren't already planning them:
    Schreiner Farms: Exotic Animals from A to Z - http://www.schreinerfarms.com/
    Maryhill Museum - http://www.maryhillmuseum.org/

    Both are along Hwy 14. The farm is somewhere between Lyle and Mary Hill on the north side of the road &#8211; there&#8217;s a good sized sign, which helps since there&#8217;s no address and can&#8217;t find on the map. I&#8217;m sure your wife will really like the museum (it&#8217;s really a castle) and there&#8217;s some cools stuff for guys in it as well.

    I&#8217;ve ridden in this are a few times and really like it. Did the Rowena curves the last time I was there. Sweet!!

    Like your route from Point A, same one I used from Destination Highways. &#61514; Oh another stop idea to sooth your sore butt &#8211; a soak at the Carson Mineral Hot Springs. Also from Destination Highways, was going to suggest Cook-Underwood road and Old Hwy 8 but DGA and got that covered. Canyon road looks like it has some awesome twisties, but I really liked 142 since it was along the river &#8211; twisty and scenic. Last year my friends and I did both and now I can&#8217;t remember which we did first. They didn&#8217;t know the route and at the south end (of one of the roads) we looked across the river and saw the other road and said &#8220;I hope we get to ride that road too!&#8221; and we did.

    Love planning routes and really wanted to share something new, but not so much this time. There&#8217;s this little bit http://goo.gl/maps/qwhQ maybe for another trip. Don&#8217;t want you to miss seeing the giraffes and suits of armor. ;) Enjoy! So wish I was closed, it&#8217;s a much longer ride coming from Kirkland!
     
  8. Do the Rowena Loops on your way back.

    Jen and I had a blast on Sunday, only a few bicycles and not one car. We made four passes.

    I think in order to have enough butt left for Rowena we'll have to cut out the Cougar-Carson beginning loop. Have to ask the wife about that one but it looks hella fun!

    Oh, and I think Saturday (weather and ass providing) we're going to go up to Johnston Ridge and have a look around the observatory. Good ride and it's been a while since we've been all the way up there.
     
  11. The Rowena Loop reminds me of the carousel at The Ridge :mfclap:....Let's do it and skip Cougar/Carson. We can do CC anytime.
     
  12. Count me in weather depending where is everyone meeting up? Kickstand up when?

    In order to preserve our posteriors, I have shortened the route TO Stonehenge. Unfortunately this results in about 50 miles of slabbing on 14....but I think Rowena on the way home will be worth it. This is the route TO: http://goo.gl/maps/gv6T

    Route back is coming shortly.

    Route back, little slab, little scenic view, ending with a nice riverside ride ending at SBUX in Vancouver for some much needed caffeine at the end of the day!

  18. Put me down for a maybe. Earlier I offered to take a new 'tard guy out on a couple roads. Let's see if he's up for an all-day run.

    In any case, I'll likely be on my two-fiddy.

  19. I Hope you make it. I haven't had a chance to ride with you yet. I can also hear about your AZ trip :mfclap:
