I hope you have been able to take advantage of this dry weather. I rode today (Sunday, 12/08). It was cold, but my ride was flat – about as flat as you can get around here. A couple of pictures below show that not all ice fields are found in the mountains. You can see …

Lake Washington Loop – 4/20/13


Similar to last week, the dark clouds loomed over us for the entire ride. The threat of rain was with us throughout the ride but the rain never came until after we were done. It was good to see all the friendly faces show up ready to ride regardless of the weather. It was actually …

RATS2012 – Sept 15, 2012


This ride is not about the rodents, but it is the Ride Around The Sound. A charity ride for the American Lung Association. I rode it in memory of my Dad. The ride started out at South Seattle Community College in West Seattle. I met up with a UW Medicine rider, but after the first …

Snoqualmie Valley Ride – 6/24/12

How fortunate we were to have perfect weather this past Sunday afternoon for a scenic ride in Snoqualmie Valley. My apologies for not specifying the mileage of the ride in my email, the route I advertised in the CTL site indicated 45 miles but actually it was closer to 40 miles. It was unfortunate that …

An Urban Adventure…

Albertsons to Alki Route

After a very wet Saturday ride to Snoqualmie Falls, our team was ready for a more enjoyable experience on Sunday.  So I proposed an “Urban Adventure Ride” through the streets of Seattle.  I’ve done this ride a few times before, but am never confident about “leading” a ride until I’ve actually done it.  Even so, …

North Loop

The Incident

Remember when you were a kid and you were making Easter eggs? And you got tired of making those boring single color Easter eggs? So you decided to make the coolest, multi-colored Easter egg and spent 20 minutes (but it seemed like 3 hours) holding an egg partially suspended at different angles in the different color …

Mercer Island Loop

Riding single today

Doug, Jerrold, Phebe, Rene, Phoebe, Nancy, Karen (riding solo), Gail (riding solo), Kary, and myself rode the Mercer Island Loop on a sunny Saturday afternoon. After some tough mid-week negotiation, Nancy and I agreed to ride tandem (Note: If Nancy weren’t a pastor, she would be qualified to negotiate nuclear arms treaties and national labor deals). I drove into the Mercer …
