Thanks for the welcoming replies. To be honest, I'm a fair-weather biker. I hate getting mudded by cars going by, and I'm reluctant to put fenders on my '83 vintage Schwinn Le Tour Luxe (it's heavy enough without them).
My longest ride was STP in 2001. In the mid-'80s I lived on Alki and rode to work frequently to downtown Seattle (it took only 5 minutes longer than the bus). After getting married, I bought the hubby a Raleigh Technium to ride along with me, but anything over about 10 miles is too taxing for his behind (even with the cushy seat covers). Then the kids....
Anyway, looking to do more recreational riding. While training for STP, I enjoyed the Green River Trail all the way up from Algona, then linking up with the Alki route, and going all the way to Lincoln Park. Flat lands are good.
