My wife and I did our first (self-organized) century today: 108.30 miles, 8:35 saddle time, about 11 hours on the clock.
Ride details for those familiar with the greater Seattle area:
We started at our house in Woodinville, taking surface streets to the Sammamish River Trail. We followed the trail north, joined the Burke Gilman Trail, then continued to Gas Works Park. After a short break, we backtracked along the BGT and SRT until we reached Marymoor Park. At that point, the odometer was showing about 52 miles. A loop around Lake Sammamish added another 22 miles. Another jaunt on the SRT and BGT to Log Boom Park, then back to Redmond Town Center. Just as we reached RTC the odometer rolled over to 100 miles. A final ride up Avondale to the Bear Creek area, and we were home.
Another first today: The first time a driver yelled at us while we were biking on the street. Some moron in a pickup yelled "get out of the way!". This was rather humorous, as a) we were on the shoulder, b) there was no one behind us, and c) Mr. Pickup was in the on-coming lane. We were not in his or anyone else's way. I guess some primitive instinct compelled him to yell at a person on a bike, and "get out of the way" was the best his little pea brain could come up with on short notice.
