Yeah, but if you check, FedEx hasn't delivered the parts and bribes yet...



Edit: just checked, delivered to house about an hour ago. No basketball to watch tonight, so I guess I'll be slapping parts and new rubber on, ride it in to work tomorrow for a quick test, and send bags to you in a couple of days.

I dropped my bike off at FedEx yesterday after last pick up, so it should be headed to Portland today.

Watch out, Hugh, @gugie has threatened to impose a weight penalty on our bikes when they're in his care.

I'll treat it like a horse race, weight myself and my fully loaded bike and add weight to Neal and Hugh's bikes as a handicap.

It's only fair.

Thats the old backpacking trick. Sneak a couple of beers into your buddy’s pack.

Speaking of beer, package from @Spaghetti Legs arrived yesterday. Bars, stem, brake levers, pedals, and bribe to be split between myself and @Andy_K. Andy is riding Hugh's bike on the prologue from the Atelier to the train statin in Portland, then will follow bike and train up to Seattle to hand deliver it to Hugh. He'll take the train back. I'm pretty sure that Andy's day as an amateur cyclocross racer are over now to begin his new part time gig as a professional semi-tourist.

I wanted to send the PDX ers a taste of Virginia so I sent a selection. Charlottesville is a town of about 45,000 and has a very good beer pedigree. In that pic are:

3 Notch’d (3 notched road was the trail between Richmond and here in colonial times)
Blue Mountain Brewery - Nelson County south of here
South Street Brewery - one of the oldest is Cville, now owned by Blue Mountain
Starr Hill - started in Cville, now in Crozet, 10 miles away so they could increase production
Devils Backbone - Nelson County - great place to stop for a beer after a wicked fast descent off the Blue Ridge Parkway
Craft Bros - located in Harrisonburg, but the label is a cool take on the “Virginia is for Lovers” logo.
Hardyoood - located in Richmond with a taproom here.

Champion and Random Row breweries are in town as well with Wild Wolf (Nelson County about a mile from DB) opening a tap room soon.

We're happy to taste us some Virginia. For now it will reside in the Beer-o-rater in the Atelier.

Slowly but surely I'm trying to replace the atmosphere of the late, great Velocult. I need to add freshly made coffee to the accoutrement at some point.

Don't forget the live music and the TdF broadcasts. The collection of cool steel rides I think you have nailed though

Oh no, your choice of bribery was quite appropriate. It's a well known fact that Andy can be talked into most anything with beer, and I'm happy to share with him.

Hmm, I've got a spare older flat screen TV, but I'm lacking wall space...one of my kids plays piano and clarinet...

T minus one week before we light this candle. Key dates:
  • Friday, 6/28 myself, @nlerner, @SquireBlack, Jim G. and Bob Williamson will be in Portland for a pre-ride dinner. @Andy_K will almost certainly be there, @johnnyace may come up from Salem, and other Portlandia folk are welcome. I'll announce time and location when we decide, and when it gets closer. Stay tuned!
  • Saturday, 6/29 the tourists will ride a short prologue from our various overnight accomodations to Union Station in Portland. @Andy_K will ferry the Portland Craigslist find Heron touring bike that I picked up for @Spaghetti Legs (which he's never riden) all the way to Seattle. Andy found out that we're having lunch at Elysian Brewing Company's location just a couple of blocks from the King Street station in Seattle at noon and couldn't resist. Spaghetti Legs is flying into Seattle that morning and will Uber over to meet up with us and see his bike for the very first time. @DrilliumDude, @ryansu and @RiddleOfSteel have been busy reconnoitering the urban/suburban route from King Station to North Bend. Six tourists + our three harbor pilots will leave the brewpub around one-ish out to Northbend. Anyone else that wants to join, feel free! That evening we'll be having dinner in Northbend, time and place TBD. Bob Freeman will be joining us to break liquid bread.
  • Sunday 6/30 we're riding out from Northbend to Cle Elum on the gravely Iron Horse trail, but before that we'll head over to Bob Freeman's place to check out his incredible collection of mostly fully restored, vintage bikes. We need to kill some time as there is a marathon running in the opposite direction on the trail. Most of them will clear out by noon, so we'll start around then. @droppedandlost says he'll probably be able to ride up to the Snowqualmie tunnel along with Bob. We'll be in Cle Elum that evening
  • Monday 7/1 we'll continue east to Ellensburg, where @scozim will pick up harbor pilot duties and get us out to Yakima Canyon, and hopefully ride a ways with us. We'll finish up the day in Naches.
  • Tuesday 7/2 is a day to head back west out of the semi-arid Western Washington, up and over White Pass back up to the green forest side of the Cascades. Our stop for the night is in Randall.
  • Wednesday 7/3 will be a return to gravel for 12 of the 58 planned miles up and over Baby Shoe Pass for an overnight stop in Trout Lake
  • Thursday, 4th of July will be our most ambitious day, 93 miles and over 5k feet of climbing with a bit more gravel coming out of Trout Lake before we make a looooooooooong descent into Carson, cross the might Columbia River on the Bridge of the Gods, then take the Gorge Highway back to Portland. @Andy_K was thinking about riding out to meet us at somewhere like Vista Point, then turn around and ride back to Portland with us. I'm sure there'll be a victory dinner somewhere in Portland that evening.
If anybody wants to meet up along the route and ride along for awhile, or just meet for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, let me know and we'll figure out how to make it happen.

Wait, I thought this trip would primarily involve eating, drinking, and yacking about bikes. You mean we'll have to actually ride, too?! Is it too late to change my mind?

Lookie here, Neal, Hugh was smart enough to get Andy to ride his bike to Seattle, what Andy doesn't know is he's doing the tour, not Hugh. I've got Jeff, Ryan, and Dan on day 1, guess what they're going to find out? Uber or Lyft from town to town, I'm gold.

Who do you have to ride your bike from start to finish? I've got my guy, above, he just doesn't know it yet.

Excellent! Right now our average daily ridership is right around 7.

I might like to join you fellas for this bit. Forecast looks good. A little warm (71°), but I can handle it.

We're pulling into King Station right before noon, then headed over to Elysian Fields Brewpub to fuel up for the grueling ride ahead. Best guess is we hit the road around 1:30? PM me with contact info and I can text you, or just show up at the Brewpub at noon and look for the old guys on old bikes.

If I don't have your contact info, and you'd like to participate/meet up/break bread/tip a mug with us, PM me! It'll be hard to communicate via PM once this train gets going.

We'd love to have you along! I will be one of three harbor pilots (totally not cooks in a kitchen..), primarily for the downtown Seattle to near Lake Sammamish route--after that, depending on how much I ride, I'm just a passenger with no touring gear.

I am currently deciding between which steel steed I shall bring--the solidarity in my gugie-fied '74 Paramount, where I will have to mount seatpost-located TT-style bottle cages (no provisions elsewhere--mounting them is in lieu of a longer ride) and sorta muddy the elegance of the rest of the bike (I'm sure no one will care though), or go with a racy-mcracer-face bike with bottle cage braze-ons already (a la my loopy paint job Land Shark). I'm leaning toward the Paramount because it's a touring group and it is a superb mile-eater. Then again, nothing glides like my Land Shark on old school aero rims, freshly-overhauled 6400 hubs, and Vittoria Open Corsa tires. This is "what outfit do I wear" but for C&V cyclists.

Funny thing, most of us know each other by the bicycle they ride. Just last weekend I was riding out by myself in the countryside and a rider came from the other direction on a blue Thompson (Corey Thompson, framebuilder) and I knew it was a guy named Tom that I'd ridden with a few months ago, so I stopped and waved him down.

Champion and Random Row breweries are in town as well with Wild Wolf (Nelson County about a mile from DB) opening a tap room soon.
Looks to be a great selection. BTW TX has its own Devils Backbone https://realalebrewing.com/beers/dev...ied=c228df42a2

Thomas and I might try to tandem along on Sunday.

Saturday is the Mrs's Birthday, so I can't get away for the Seattle part of the ride.

It would be great to see you and Thomas again! PM me your contact info, I'll reply with mine. Sunday will be about a noon start up the Ironhorse, we'll be leaving from Bob Freeman's place. If you want to go through the tunnel, make sure you bring a light, but you probably already knew that.
