A (Kind of) Leisurely Ride Around Lake Sammamish


Unable to join Ed and company for a ride tomororw morning, I was looking out the windoow planning out other future rides.  But the 59º F temperature, blue sky and wispy clouds was beckoning me to go for a nice leisurely ride. Right now. Rolling down my hill on my way toward Sunset to meet Kary, I was greeted by a …

Chilly Hilly 2012: from FA(s)T Eddie’s point of view


The cold temperature and the hills each contribute to the challenge.  But for me, the biggest challenge is the fact that I haven’t exercised in any way, since September.  Back then, my conditioning was acceptable.  But I’ve had a lot of cake, ice cream, roast beef, red wine, poppy-seed muffins, and couch time since the …

Mercer Island Loop – 1st Ride of the Season


Couldn’t ask for a better February day to dust off the ole two-wheeler and take it for a spin. Nine of us took advantage of the sunny mild winter day this morning and went for a leisurely spin around Mercer Island. For the most part, the group adhered to the plan keeping the pace at …

STP 2011 – Red Team Ride Report

Our ride started off almost like clockwork – people got their streamers and their much valued  wrist bands. We left at 6:20am and the remaining color teams left roughly on schedule with the yellow team rolling out at 6:40am. At Kent, we saw some of the teams start to come in and our team (red) took off …

Maltby Cafe-Paradise Lake


Daniel and I have not had a chance to really get out on a long ride for about 4 weeks so we were looking forward to doing this 44 mile Tour de Cure loop.  I was not sure how the ride would go.  Would have have to stop early?  Make frequent adjustments?  Get lost and take a long time …

Swan Century – Beautiful Ride with FOOD! (June 4)


This is an interesting ride – it’s split into two legs.  The first leg goes east to the town of Concrete.  Frances, Doug Y. and I took it easy; though Frances and I did pick up the pace a little we settled back to ride with Doug Y. who knows enough to not get sucked …

North Bend Loop – May 30 Memorial Day

Snoqualmie Falls

Nice ride, 51 miles with no rain (again) to North Bend and Snoqualmie Falls with Eddie, Heather, Janella, Richard, Kary & I.  Was able to see the Wallabies on the way to Snoqualmie Falls.  Nice scenery, lots of hills but most of all a fun ride!

Pod 1/A Ride Report for Lake Washington & Lake Sammamish, May 28

We started off from Sunset Elementary. Everyone stuck together pretty much all the way to Log Boom Park. A couple of folks broke off to take a nature break or stop at a store but I didn’t notice. I was too busy huffing away. After a quick regroup at Log Boom Park I tried to …
