Longest ride since February, before our 80 day COVID lockdown began here in Shanghai in mid-March. Actually did a full metric century distance, but broken into two separate rides as I had mechanical problems stemming from the complete drivetrain replacement that I did over the weekend that I needed to return home to fix before going out again.

Yup, Doppler showed dry. Walk to garage for a foray at Discovery Park by foot. Pull out of driveway. Noooooooooooo. Windshield wipers the entire drive. A very thick mist for the first half of the walk.

I inquired a while ago about your lock-down. Glad to see you back in action.

Only 25 miles for me :(

Troul 06-15-22 04:55 AM

42 Miles, rollin hard before the high humidity 95F temps kick up.

kahn 06-15-22 07:34 PM

Today, 35.5 and about 1,770 feet. Two bridges and an island. A gray, very gray day and about 62F. So compared with what some of you are contending with - a good day, I guess.

Nah, you did a more extensive "loop" including the loop at Seward (Seward's Folly - Alaska purchase which the Russians want back) Park. I should note that Mercer Island is a somewhat bucolic tree lined loop with swooping curves and some nice hills. And a lot of Volvo's in the old days. Probably more Tesla's now! Years ago, on the loop of Mercer Island there were a bunch of kids picketing Paul Allen's house since he was buying an island in the San Juan Islands that had their camp!

Interesting history on MI, thank you. And Yes you are correct, there were plenty of Teslas. Probably saw at least 6.

Did post-grad work in Eugene; home of the ‘70s Volvo wagon resplendent with Grateful Dead stickers.

I understand that way back when, there was a thought of purchasing MI and making it a Seattle City Park. A real missed opportunity billions of tax dollars later.

A friend lived on the same road as Paul Allen in the west side. When driving there, you'd pass a sign on a small bridge "Under video surveillance" since you were pass Allen's estate. Which brings me to the question I asked my friends. "I thought this area was zoned for Single Family homes. What's with the apartment complex two doors away" Answer: "It is Paul Allen's HOUSE" Seriously it ranged up and over the hill and was this sprawling THING!

Ah, found at this link:

An 11,000 music hall!!!! I am still chuckling as I post this.

I rode 41 miles today but didn't touch Mercer Island like some of you did. Sometimes I ride across the island but I don't think the local Mercer Island screening committee allow my type to venture off the I-90 trail onto their hallowed roads!

Utter nonsense. I lived in Redmond for 6 years and the gracious people of Mercer Island were more than happy to escort me off the island without stopping.

Got out for 28 miles today. Rain in the forecast tomorrow so don't know if I'll be able to ride or not.
