    Cool story, n-f. With a little luck you will find your bag too.

    Thanks, Jim. Regarding the Wisconsinites, I'm not sure whether you're referring to their dairy products or their alleged lack of intellect.

    ' went for a ride at the lake front again today.






    The path wasn't crowded today.












    I did not ride a vintage bike, though. Apologies for not keeping faith.

    Yeah, it was supposed to be 80 degrees. When I got home at 5pm, the temp was 49 at the lake front (and fn windy).

    If you're ever in Kent, Ide Hill Village happens to have the highest altitude church in the county. Not something I knew till I looked it up after taking the following pic earlier this year. (Warning: modern bike!) Beautiful part of the country.

    A couple days ago The Washington Dept. of Transportation announced that they were opening up the North Cascades HWY to motor vehicles on thusday(today). There is a 40 miles section of that highway that is closed during the winter months due to heavy snow/avalanche conditions. The DOT spends about six weeks clearing the snow there every spring before they open it up. During that time folks can ride there bikes on the closed section as far as the crews have cleared.

    Yesterday I was fortunate enough to get out and ride it while it was still closed to cars. Northbend has been up and over this road a few times and posted pictures here. It was my first time and it really is an awesome ride. I started out in little town/community of Newhalem, and from there it's a 14 mile climb to the gate.





    When I got to the gate, I came across these three guys from Bellingham, and rode with them for a few miles before going off on my own.





    Rainy Pass is the first of two passes along the way it's 4,855ft in elevation.



    I came across another Bellingham rider and continued on to the next pass with him for a few miles.



    Washington Pass was my turnaround point.

    There's something special about riding that pass. Even moreso when you do it while it's closed to cars. So envious right now Roger. Great ride and photos!

    Nice shots, Roger. I've been down that route and it's beautiful. I stopped at Lake Diablo, and of course I was in a car and not biking (can't even fathom biking that far and climbing those passes, unfortunately).

    No cars! It must have been serenely quiet. Must be wonderful, beautiful scenery.

Uhhh ..... well ..... I ... uhhh ...

    So this is how I arrived at work this morning. Happy it didn't rain, as there was no way I could have closed the top:



    The ride home was nice, though. The expected rain showers did not arrive, there was a fierce tail wind, and the scenery was, well, 'polderesque':





    When I took this picture I made three observations:

    1. I should move the saddle forward half an inch, for comfort and looks
    2. My little seat bag with my tools and spare inner tubes is NOT hanging from the saddle
    3. I'm an idiot

    I'd apparantly left my seat bag lying on the floor near the office exit. I'll probably never see it again



    Forgot to bring a water bottle as well, so I stopped for a drink in Woubrugge. The Coke can is orange-colored, and says 'Hup, Holland, Hup', to make us win the soccer world cup next month:

    Touché. I'm thinking exactly 18 bikes. Plus 6 spare wheel sets where the hardtop lies in the summertime.

    Had to. It was either that or sell 18 bikes and 6 wheel sets.

    And that would leave only 142 bikes and 36 wheel sets ....

    Yes, they are, and sturdy too. Every other mini tool I've tried fell apart after some serious use. These don't. Mine are branded 'HEMA', a local store brand. I think I've seen them branded as 'BBB Scorpion' as well.

    +1 Glad you found your tool bag and didn't lose those great looking multi tools. Very cool.

    Too bad you had to let go that S2000. One of my Holy Grail 'cars'.
