Drivers will share Issaquah roads with about 500 cyclists Saturday as the Seattle Century ride passes through the city. Expect to see riders from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Riders will come to Issaquah from Preston.
Cyclists will exit Interstate 90 at East Sunset Way, then head down West Sunset Way, turn right onto Newport Way Northwest and then turn onto West Lake Sammamish Parkway. Riders will proceed left onto Southeast Newport Way and then pass out of the city limits toward Factoria.
No streets will be closed during the ride.
City spokeswoman Autumn Monahan said cyclists would be required to adhere to the rules of the road. She encouraged drivers to be aware of the influx of riders.
Seattle Century riders will cover 100 miles through the Emerald City, the Eastside and rural King County.
