Hybrid Cyclist from Seattle

Hello, Hybrid cyclist in Seattle area that recently upgraded to a new 2018 Specialized CrossTrail Elite Carbon bike. I bike for fitness/exercise. My most recent ride was this past May 27th: A section of "Burke Gilman Trail", totaling 22.8 miles round-trip. I prefer routes that aren't using/sharing roads with cars, so dedicated bike paths, fire road trails, etc are more my speed and I'm strictly a "fair weather" cyclist (i.e. No Rain). I expect to spend most of my time on the CrossTrail Owner's forum, picking up tips and advice from this community.

Thanks everyone and I'll see about posting pictures soon. Also, thanks for the Green River and Interurban trail suggestions - I know they exist and I'll look into trying portions of these this summer as I build up my endurance.
