Tacos, April 14, 2012

Rolling the tandem to the car, i removed …

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 …

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 …

First Ride of 2011

Lake Sammamish 1-3-2010

It was a sunny, clear and crisp morning as three of us (Kary, Eddie and William) met at Idlywood Park on West Lake Sammamish.  Tendrils of fog were rising from the water surface and shimmering in the bright morning sun.  The 26 ºF air was cold, but not chilling, it was invigorating and refreshing.  As we headed …

With STP only a few weeks away, did Daniel and I need to go on a ride?  Especially since Daniel has only been out a few times?  YES.  So what did we do?  We decided to spend this day as a family on a road trip to Canada.  At least that was the plan until …

Snoqualmie Falls-Tokul Road Loop

Snoqualmie Falls-Tokul Road Loop The morning was cool, bright and crisp when we started.  I have not taken this route before the Snoqualmie falls and I was looking forward to seeing how to get there, having heard about this route from other.  As we went behind Pickering Market, the slugs were out in force — good thing for …
