Beaverton/Aloha to Good Sam
Been doing the multi-mode route using MAX and bike from home to work, but am looking for an occasional alternative (maybe more if I really get into it) to ride all the way. I've seen several routes listed from the Westside to downtown and was curious about which is the "easiest" .
I know, it sounds like I'm a bit of a wuss, but have a physical job (I'm a nurse) and end up being on my feet for the greater part of 12 hours so I don't want to arrive at work completely exhausted to start. The other issue is time. I work nights, 7p-7a, so sleep is essential. In other words a long drawn out route is not great. Any suggestions? I'm coming in from Farmington and 170th area.
Thanks in advance!
I'd think that just aiming at the West Hills and then taking the Zoo path:
up and over would be your best bet. The only problem will be the first couple miles after you leave work. Use low gears!
FWIW: I'm coming in from the opposite direction. I live in east Vancouver and work at Emanuel as a pharmacy tech. It's pretty flat until I get close to home- then it's a short 7-8% climb. Ugh.
