Mt. St. Helens – June 22, 2013

Kary at Cascade Peaks

One thing about this ride is that it is far away – a solid 2 hours by car. By the time we hit MortonI really had to go. My advice is to take I-5 all the way to around Chehalis and then head east on 12. People picked up some food – I got three packs …

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?

South Loop

Yeah, we caught 'em!

Nancy and I started at 9:00 am from the Mercer Island Community Center. The South Loop would be double the mileage from our last time out (i.e., the Mercer Island Loop).

East Lake Laps – Sunday, April 29


The invitation seemed right- a lesiurely ride on the Sammamish River Trail to Woodinville and back.  This was only about a 14 mile ride or so.  A nice ride to stretch out the legs. Getting ready, I figured we would meet at Marymoore.  Why not just ride over?  Running a bit late I pushed the …
