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 …

Snohomish Bakery 025

Potatoes au gratin are thinly sliced potatoes baked with cheese and cream. According to Livestrong.com, a 1-cup serving contains 313 calories, roughly half in carbs, and the other half in fat. I like mine prepared with Yukon Gold potatoes, and a mix of parmesan and gruyere cheese. Most of you who’ve taken Heather’s Eating for …

Sunday afternoon – South Lake Loop

Well, I attempted to set this up as a friendlier ride and it started out that way. Alana was there and we had a decent pace for a while. Then she had to drop off. The pace was still friendly going across the floating bridge and started to pick up a little as we rode …

Tacos, April 14, 2012


Saturday found Esther and me preparing for our first tandem ride of the season.  I dusted off the bike, checked to make sure all the tools were packed, pumped up the tires – good, no flats - and noticing the crank had some grease, tried to at least give it a cursory wipe. Rolling the tandem to the car, i removed …

The Tragedy of the Black Diamond Bakery Ride


A beautiful day, and a beautiful ride. As a rider, this means a bright sun that sharply pierces the solid, blue sky, and gently radiates warm rays onto my face, while miles clock by, past rushing river, past tree-covered embankment, over smooth dry asphalt, and into a bakery. No flats, no cramps, no injuries. Enjoying …

March 31 ride around Lake Sammamish…in the rain


Wet.  Cold.  Typical March riding conditions for Seattle.  Who could ask for more?  Apparently, most people do. Fridays nights are when I plan to get ready for my Saturday morning ride.  Work is stressful, not because it’s hard, but because of the volume of projects and deadlines.  Each week run by in a blur, and …

South Lk Wa Loop – 3/24/12


At last, a dry sunny but crisp Saturday morning for the bike ride. Ten riders (William, Paul, Grace, Dan, Victor, Eddie, Brad, Craig, Gail, and myself) gathered at Mercer Island Park and Ride for a 26 mile stroll around the south loop of Lake Washington. I did say stroll, but Craig and William didn’t understand …
