East of Mt SI on the best flat cycling road around, Middle Fork Rd which goes into the Snoqualmie Mt Baker National Forest. A 20 mile round trip If you start from the Mailbox Peak parking lot. On the entire ride, was passed by 5 cars (weekday) and had a bobcat cross 30’ in front of me.

111 Miles O.D. Caught in the falsely forecasted rain/storm. Had to abort the long ride. Maybe Next attempt I'll roll the goal.

23.1 with a gain of almost 1,100 feet.

Some of the views:





The new helmet


Cruise ships getting ready to cruise.

Mt Rainier barely visible



Upon, Adjacent and something else. Controversial when first installed.

40 on Saturday, the humidity was just oppressive and was really taking a toll on me and then the wind kicked up with the potential tropical system roaming off shore. I am generally not one that lets the humidity and wind impact me, but my body was not having any of it on Saturday. Felt like crap the rest of the day. I had planned on 65, felt lucky to get 40. My wife was coming into the hood as I turned in. She said that when she saw me, she was amazed I was just getting home and could not believe I was still out there. She was sure I would call it a day after an hour and finish on the trainer. Still felt horrible today so decided to just recover and will get some time on the trainer tomorrow.

Haven't ridden yet but plan on going to the grocery store to make some spam posts to be able to put up a pic of my frame so a certain fine gentleman can

Good luck today


Yesterday was my 9th Anniversary 100 mile ride for a bicycling friend killed by a semi as he and 2 of his cycling buddies began their last week's worth of riding to Key West, FL that began in Prudhoe Bay, AK.

Mist on the river.

Mist in the mountains.

Pheasants strutting in the field.

Rain from the recent typhoon finally cleared out today, so I got a chance to get out on my recently upgraded Dahon Boardwalk and test out my upgrades. Super happy with the results.

Thanks for those local pictures. Reminds me of one of my last foreign trips - two weeks in China with the end in Shanghai. That was Oct 2019. Then the Dolomites in Feb 2020. Both China and Italy later to be Covid locales.
