Nice pics, Roger - I was climbing Mount Pilchuck the following day; that's a great area for outdoor activities
I was out and about today, doing some local roads, country lanes and a lot of the Interurban Trail, ending up in Everett for a late lunch. Although the skies looked threatening all day, not a drop of rain.
Btw, I've decided: my 1983 Colnago Mexico is simply hands-down my favorite bike. I've begun riding it again (after spending lots of time with the Davidson and '73 Super) and it's light - lighter than most of my bikes - and the handling is just perfect. But it's more than that: I simply feel faster and stronger on this bike. I found a short 9% grade on my return trip today that I went up in my 20T cog - didn't have to use my 21T bailout, either. Sure, part of it is quitting smoking, but still...
20 years after putting this bike together while stationed in London, it's still the go-to bike. Think I'm taking it to Cino in Septemeber.
