bremerton to bainbridge, the long way (300km/189 mi)
hey nor'westers, just a little ride report here from a seattle randonneur.
did another 300k brevet
on saturday - took a ferry from seattle to bremerton, rode a circuitous route to shelton, then up to quilcene and down to bainbridge island.
the route on a map:
we did it in about 13.5 hours, i'm really happy with that! (my last 300k was a 19 hour affair..) this time we started at 7:15 AM, finished at about 8:30 PM.
some climbing involved, but nothing major - max elevation was only 800 feet:
my "rando" bike (a miyata) was out of commission, so my "race" bike took its place. slapped on the dynohub & carradice bag & the ciocc was good to to:
