Great day in the PNW

Wife and I got out for a ride today. Only got 22 miles but thats good for me considering the recurring Achilles problems. The right one flared just a little today on the outgoing part of the ride and then just before we got back to the parking lot it twinged a little but I didn't try to go too fast and we stopped a couple of times, once in Orting at Starbucks and again to look at a couple of houses for sale so it was great. Finally a nice weekend. Got the corn and tomatos planted (woo hoo) I'm a farmer

Boy howdy, it was nice in the Willamette Valley today. I was out early for a fantastic 45 mile ride, and would have done more but I had something to be back for. Should be nice on Monday too, it would be a great day to play hookey

46 miles today with a moderate breeze and mid-80's for the temps. Nothing beats days like this for a ride.

I had to work Sunday... I was craving a ride all day! I'm taking the MTB out to Banner Forest today with a fellow forumite so hopefully that will make up for it...If the knee holds together.

I'm hoping for some leftover mud!

Saturday morning rode from my place in a 70 mile loop. I hit Buckley, Wilkenson, Enumclaw, Black Diamond, etc. There seemed to be a lot of climbing, but my Garmin said I only ascended 2500ft

Beautiful weather, but I am getting ready to go to England. In fact, I'll be leaving around 9.00 pm this evening.

I know, I could cancel the trip...NOT!

Did a nice ride up Ben's trail to Whoops, then rode up Upper Whoops as far as I could go until I hit some snow patches. I turned around. Then, a guy lower on the trail told me that the snow patches I saw were few and far between, and that it was henceforth clear up until Shooting Star Shelter
