Wow, I am really pleased to see all the people up here in Snohomish County/NE King County. If you are not already aware of it, http://www.bikesclub.org/ is our local bike club. I wonder if there might be any interest in getting together a local ride, say on the Centennial Trail?

PS: To the six foot rider, depending on if the road bike is traditional vs. compact geometry, and measured center-top vs. center-center, I would probably be looking at 58 or 60 cm. I myself am 5'10" with a 32 inch cycling inseam, and ride traditional geometry with a 56 cm. center-top bike and a 55 cm. center-center bike.

For a good road bike selection here in the county, try Bicycle Centers, on Evergreen in Everett, and 132nd in Mill Creek, Bicycles West over on Highway 99 in Lynnwood or the new Gregg's Cycles down by Alderwood Mall.

Hey everyone! Here to represent Cheney Washington for my university going half of the year (go EWU Eagles) and Tacoma Washington for my summer months. I just got my first road bike off of craigs list for $75. Its a Raleigh Capri and its in the shop right now getting its tune up. I'm glad to see that a noob like me has a place to come and ask all his dumb questions.

I'm on Bainbridge, although I grew up in Poulsbo.
This Thanksgiving will mark my 41rst year as a resident of Washington.

This place has changed an awful lot in the time I've been here, some for the better but most for the worse.
I wish the d***ed "tourists" (and you know who you are!) would move back California and leave us in peace!

...but that'll never happen.

I need new digs.

Man, I used to live in Meadowdale, just up the hill from Beverly Elementary!
Of course that was 1966. The area's changed a lot since then.
Mukilteo is still a nice place though, last time I was there.

Hey bebop - Yes, I know the area well. I've lived in the general area most of my 40+ years. Lived just south of Meadowdale in the 70's, then the Alderwood area (before Mill Creek). Then my better half turned me on to Mukilteo where I've been the last 15 years. So I've ridden my bike all over that area - more recently around Mukilteo.

Things sure have changed.

Briefly. I stepped in and wandered around a bit there and at Bicycle Centres on Evergreen. Tim's was having a nice sale. Bicycle Centres seems high in price compared to some of the prices for new bikes that I've seen quoted in the Clydesdale forum. I'm shy, so I have yet to ask about test rides anywhere.

Thank you, this will help me focus the Craigslist search a bit. I'll look into the local cycle club, too.

I'd be interested in a ride, it sounds like fun.

I would join in on a ride or two, I've probably already seen some of you riding in the area (and maybe I've sucked your wheel or pulled you along?)

And of course, there is also the REI at Alderwood with a decent bike selection. And if they don't have what you want, you can order it online and have it shipped to Alderwood for free for final assembly and pickup. The sticky wicket with the local Craigslist is finding the right size, the right style and a well-maintained bike at a reasonable price.

We have tentatively arranged a Snohomish County ride for June 2nd, 2007 starting at 0700 in downtown Snohomish at the south Centennial Trail head. We are planning to do this 40 mile route: http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path...-Roesiger-Loop

Well, when this list was started, I was still in Florida. Thank God, I finally escaped.

Now happily living, biking and commuting in Bellevue, WA.

Newbie to the forum, in the Montlake neighborhood of Seattle. Longtime NW resident after growing up in the MD suburbs of DC, where I rode my trusty (and heavy) old Schwinn Varsity everywhere.

Just bought a Specialized Sequoia - my first road bike in something like 30 years. Spent the last decade or so riding around Seattle on a mountain bike, swearing I was going to get a road bike the entire time. Finally did it!

Looking to lay down some mileage around town and discover all the KingCo trails beyond the BGT.


cheers,
Jim

Thanks Shifty. So far, so good. I live in a house with no AC and so far has not been a major problem. I think I'll be buying a portable AC or something, but hasn't been truly unbearable or anything that a fan and window couldn't take care of.
