SE 34th Vasa Park to Horizon View
This ride can be done several ways. Stop anywhere you want but the long version is a very good ride. SE 34th from Vasa Park to I90 is a fun bit to get you started. The rest can be an adventure. The section crossing I90 is confusing at first and involves less than a 1/2 block of unpaved bike/walking trail going right at the end of SE 37th just before the gate at TDHS. After topping out on 34th cross under I90 via the tunnel and turn back east after exiting the tunnel. (I exit on the rightt and ride against traffic here for a few 100 yards as it seems safer to me) Go back one block and up 37th to the bike path and onto SE 138th St. Take a right here and hit the bike path up to SE 38th st. Then on to the marked bike commute path on 153rd. Follow that to the crest of the ride and you have two option, Horizon View on the left (the higher ride) or Horizon View on the right which gives a fun turn around point as well. This is one of the best long climbs on the east side even with the I90 crossing.
