    Now normally I would believe Mr. Pool...but so far it's been rather cloudy.

    Still, I suppose it could be dry over the weekend.

    I did get out and view Saturn and Venus this morning through the telescope, though, so the clouds did part at one point .

    Tempting fate, I left my rain gear at home today, so we'll probably have a deluge this afternoon.

    Just got back from a wonderful 60 mile ride. Took off from the Sammamish plateau around 9:30, temps around 52f. Rode the Sammamish/Burke Gilman all the way to Fremont, up Dexter and into downtown Seattle. Southbound on 3rd Avenue until I got to the King Street station where I boarded the 550 express to Bellevue. Rode from downtown Bellevue to Kirkland, east on 85th to Rose Hill until I got back to Marymoor Park. From Marymoor I took East Lake Sammamish, a few rights and lefts here and there and I'm back home.

    I think I'll do it again tomorrow. Saturday and Sunday too.

    Ballard to Snohomish and back on Sun. Moderate hills here and there and about 90 miles. Last real fun ride of the year possibly. Pie in Snohomish.

    A little detour into Everett and you'd have had a century. Nice.

    What a beautiful ride this morning. Temps around 45f when I left at 7:30 this morning. Sunny and clear on the Sammamish Plateau but when I descended on to East Lake Sammamish it was foggy. It remained foggy through Redmond, Kirkland and downtown Bellevue. Returned back to sunny Sammamish 45 miles later.

    What a wonderful life!!!

    Who is this Mr. Pool person? If it's a weather person, well then, you need to see, M.J. on Fox13 mornings. She's an interesting character and does well at the news.

    I can't stand M.J. or anybody on Q13 for that matter. That whole station is absolutely nauseating, whether it's Dan Devone talking about how the Mariners need to score more runs to be successful or Lilly Jang telling us about what so & so wore to the Oscar's...it's really bad!!!

    Quit reading my rants...get out and ride!!!

    I just got back from riding! I don't watch the anything but the morning while I'm getting ready, but MJ seems like a pretty nice lady and I like the added touch of what to wear, such as a light jacket.

    Lilly is better than Angela King who I can't stand. Carmen Ainsworth is pretty good too, while Bill Wixey is hilarious, not necessarily in a good way. Adam Gehrke seems to put a little bit of sarcasm into his otherwise mundane job. It's a nice subtle touch.

    Are you kidding me?!? I left with smart wool under a wind layer and an Underarmor beanie. I made it about 10 minutes before I took off the wind layer and beanie. It was a beautiful ride, here's the stats:

    Miles - 29.18
    Time - 1:38.01
    Alt Gain - 1,456
    Avg. HR - 161 (this is for my entire ride, minus refill stop)
    Max HR - 187
    Max Speed - 41.6

    Overall, it was a beautiful ride, hopefully not the last one of the year. If tomorrow turns out this nice, might have to go on a long one.

    Great riding weather today, rode out to see the Sock Eye coming up the streams. Just jeans and 2 layers of wool. Great fall colors and crisp air.

    Road to several streams. Knee cap is recovering nicely... After 20 mi., I tire easily...Dr says muscles will rebound quickly.

    Beautiful day - I definately took advantage. I saw the fog out over Port Gardner in the morning and decided to wait a little. Did 61 miles around the Snohomish Valley - almost made it all the way to Sultan. I even through in a short (.8 mile) steep hill just for good measure. That's the most I've done in over a month. It hurts so good!

    What's the story with your knee? I'm suffering from PFS right now. Well, one doctor says it's PFS another one says, "No, it can't be PFS! You're VMO is almost overly developed and your patella tracks straight as an arrow." My x-rays show a nice groove worn into my femur though (rising sun x-ray pose for those that are familiar) so we'll see after a few more weeks of physical therapy.

    We went south yesterday and rode the Green River trail. My brothers wife just got into riding so we made it a short 20 mile ride with a stop for lunch in Kent. Couldn't ask for a better day to ride. Looks like we might have good weather next week. If so weare going to do EVerett to Snohomish and back. Then Sunday I think I will do a ride from Everett to Sultun.

    I thought the forecast calls for showers all week. That isn't considered "good" in my book.
