A few interesting thing on my ride..

I had to get some chrome polish and rust remover today and didn't feel like bugging my parents to take me to Wal Mart. So I hopped on the bike and made the 12 mile ride down there. Traffic in town was pretty bad but I whizzed right along. I was stopped at a light w/ a Wendy's on the corner. I look over at the Wendy's and see this old lady coming out of the drive thru w/ a bag of food on one of those motorized scooters. I couldn't stop looking, it looked so goofy. So motorized scooters are aloud in the drive thru but bikes aren't Then I saw a roadie on a tandem cranking up a good size hill all my himself, no amigo on the back.

Weather was amazing. It rained for a few hours this morning, but cleared up by 11 and was nice and sunny w/ a little cloud cover. It was a perfect 59 today

Oh and I stopped at Chipotle and got an excelent burrito

Good times, now for chores

I saw two bald eagles today, hunting along the ship canal in the heart of Seattle.

Today, I saw a couple 'saddling up' on a park bench about a metre from the bike track - completely oblivious to anyone passing by.

I started wondering how they got the horse onto the park bench, but I'm sure from all those Fosters adds that it means something else.

No , you misunterstood. They were just using the park bench to stand on while climbing up on to the horse. I don't know what the big deal is unless you are not permitted to horseback ride in the park.

Wow. There must have been a miracle that day. I've never seen that on any of my rides. . .
