    Washinton State residents...(X-post "just visiting")

    Don't worry, I'll not be moving in. I live in Humboldt CA and will be staying in the Redmond, WA area for a few days. I'll be bringing a bike and plan on riding every evening after work. I'm hoping somebody here can recommend a place to ride off road in the Redmond area. My bicycle will be my only mode of transportation (other than public) so any visits to trails will need to be within a reasonable riding distance. I won't have a lot of time to ride after work and won't want to spend more than an hour or so in transit to the trails. Maybe somebody can recommend a bus route to some trails?

    Thanks,

    Tim

    Uhm you're screwed, can you rent a car or something? If not call up Seattle Metro Bus and ask them how you can get from Redmond to St. Edwards State Park and/or Philip Arnold Park(Tapeworm trail) in Renton.
    If you can rent a car there are tons of trails you can make it to, but not many trails along bus routes or within riding distance from the Redmond area. Beaver Pond in Issiquah comes to mind but it's been so many years since i've ridden out there, and that's quite a ways too depending on where in Redmond you're at.
    Good luck.

    Bus to Black DIamond maybe? Might be a turn around route to Enumclaw.

    You're not TOTALLY screwed but biking to some of the goods out of Redmond is on pretty dangerous roads for a cyclist. You might have better luck checking the PNW Forum on Ridemonkey or www.bbtc.org
    for local rides and see about catching a lift from the Microsoft area.
    The bbtc has a ride on Thursdays called the "Thrilla in Woodinvilla" and the start point is very ridable from Redmond. Even starts/ends at the Redhook Brewery so you can't go wrong! It isn't a tech ride by any means but mostly off road and good fitness builder.
