Lol. Very true. I thought of that but you canít mix and match!

You can do anything you want.

Actually, next week or so I will be in the land of metric and moderately confused, particularly with regard to temperature.

I had a heck of a time with the ol' ORCA card last week going/coming to/from LA. No problem on the bus.

Longest in quite a while. 35.5 and about 1,700 feet of gain. Along the Interurban Trail and then east to the Burke Gilman Trail. Along Waynita Way into Kirkland. The Kirkland Connector Trail which has a few miles of gravel. Northrup Way to the 520 Bike Trail across the bridge and then through the Univ of Washington and home. The spur for the trip was that the 520 Bridge across Lake Washington was closed for construction making it QUIET whereas it is normally a complete assault on the ears!

Cycling along the Interurban you must have come across a few homeless camps. Scenic North Seattle!
How was the construction work on Juanita? I've heard it can get pretty bad at times which is why I've been avoiding it this summer.
520 bridge must have been very quiet. I would think almost eerily quiet.

I think you nailed it. And there's no problem as long as you toe the line!

thatís actually the end! i always go through the presidio first, because those westerly winds will accelerate even me to 25+ at the end of a long rideÖ but the wind is shielded a bit going through the presidio by the hills/trees.

Actually, my friend wanted to do the Interurban since she said it has been cleared and it was - CLEARED

We used WAYNITA and NOT Juanita! Obviously, the naming was someone's idea of a joke. You wind up on 100th which is a trafficky arterial until the wetland. Then after the wetland boardwalk, we turned right and hit some parkland with a nice trail system that I'd never been on before.

I am trying to remember to call King Cty and ask about Juanita.

Replying to myself - I called King Cty. They would not tell me anything about Juanita Way!

Hoping to get out there before the weekend ends to boost up the summer like miles.

SpeedyBlueBiker 08-30-22 05:22 PM

diphthong 08-30-22 10:09 PM

Troul 08-31-22 09:15 AM

30 Miles. Way too much traffic for a Wednesday.

diphthong 08-31-22 08:14 PM

80-spot. a little toasty inland so kept it seabreeze/baybreeze as much as possible.
no way in hades i'll be able to repeat the route during the labor day weekend that is coupled
with a substantial heatwave unless going < 10 mph or risking life and limb more than usual.

delbiker1 09-01-22 01:43 AM

25 miles to get me to 800 for August. Now just over 3900 for the year, 4 months to get 1100 more.

Troul 09-01-22 07:59 PM

104 miles. Picked out a tree branch from the rear der a couple of times.

SpeedyBlueBiker 09-01-22 09:34 PM

Only 19 miles today. I had a flat which cut into my riding time.

Imaginos 09-01-22 09:46 PM
