Looking for S. Puget Sound Clydes

I am wondering if any other clydes in the South Puget Sound area might like to go on training rides. I am an Uber Clyde and ride either Mountain or Road. I am going to start for my "Beat he train" Century in may. Thats a 100 mile ride one way ride to Longview WA to catch the last train of the day home to Tacoma. I figure that would be a good incentive to making it quick!

Like the way you worked that 'training' ride for the 'beat the train' in there! I'm a bit far from you (I'm in Kent), but that's a great idea.

I like the idea of the one way for my Clyde Century Challenge. I was thinking about taking the train down and then riding back but I think there is more incentive for catching the train for the way home! IF that ride goes ok I might try and push it later in the summer to make it all the way to Portland (extra 54 miles).

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I like the motivation factor as well!
