Reminiscing on STPs Past

Look at Our Jerseys

So you might be wondering what some of our past STP experiences have been like.  Let’s just say they’ve evolved over the past six years.  On our first STP in 2005, we were six guys slogging along like the 8,500 other riders.  In 2006 we picked up our own SAG wagon so we didn’t have …

I learned a few things on this ride.  But that’ll come at the end. We had 7 guys riding the North Loop from the Wilburton P&R.  Craig and I rode my tandem from my house meeting Eddie on his Pinarello, Mike riding his Towel Rack, Eric Y on his Fuji, and two of Mikes friends …

Youthful Bravado vs. Experience

It was a gorgeous day!  We met at the Mercer Island Park and Ride at 2:00 pm.  Some old reliables (Dan, Curt, and Andrew); iron man Richard (who rode 50 miles earlier in the day); and a welcome new face – Alex!   Seven of us - 5 singles and one tandem (Karen and me) – began riding clockwise …

Medina Waterfront (adj) (1024x766)

In addition to the Snoqualmie Valley-Carnation ride, there was also another group of riders who rode down to the Medina Waterfront.  I understand that there were three tandem riding couples and that it was a nice 18 mile ride of pure riding bliss, coffee, sandwiches, and pastries on the waterfront park.   What’s not to like?
