    7 Hills of Kirkland: Roll Call!

    Who's riding, and what distance?

    I'll be there for the early roll out on the century ride. Black Cross Check, blue Seattle Randos jersey.

    Hope to see you there. I'm part of a group of 8 guys doing the metric century. We're shooting for a 7:30 departure, but getting that many people headed in the same direction is like pushing molasses up a sandy hill. We'll see...

    Have a great ride and remember the strawberry shortcake waiting at the end!
    It's time to ride...

    I'm on the mountain bike this weekend. Doing a 24 hour mountain bike race over in Spokane. Always a good time.

    I was thinking the same thing. Clifton, you've set the standard, no going back now.

    I will be riding probably around 7:00

    While I like the ss/fg bike, I don't think Kent Peterson has to worry about losing his reign as the fixed gear king any time soon.

    I might be there, in a blue SiR jersey as well.

    (For the century route, of course)

    Clifton, congrats on doing that other century fixed, that's some hardcore ****!

    I'll be there if I'm not burnt out riding by Monday. I'm still hoping to do the Torture Century Saturday, and have another potential long ride on Sunday to Enumclaw and black by way of Green River Gorge. If I do 7 Hills, I'm riding from home and just doing the short route. I may try to come early to say hi to all you century riders. I am wussy.

    Finished the metric route not too long ago, plus the 10 miles to/from which included 3 more 1.5 - 2.25 mile long climbs as "bonus elevation".

    There's more vids on my Qik site, but my fave so far was The Winery Hill Bagpiper.

    Did the 100 miles, ride from home brought it to about 113 miles, with 500 more feet elevation.

    Was on Davidson Ti, wearing "Lpr Brakes" jersey.

    Finished Winery Hill too early, bagpiper wasn't out yet. Maybe I'll go put in "It's a Long Way To the Top If You Wanna Rock In Roll" as a (not so) reasonable facsimile.

    You must have been way ahead of me. I didn't roll out of the lot until 7am, and somehow I managed to stay ahead of 2wheeled, who was heading out for the century with his STP training group.

    Congrats on the rides. I decided to skip this event - last night I decided I wanted to get away from crowds, so I woke up early, rode to the Vashon Island ferry, did the lap of Vashon Island and rode home. Beautiful ride except for the nail I picked up on the way home. Also got to watch a little bike polo in the park - I guess it was the Seattle Bike Polo cup or something.

    Hey Jason, Nice photo & good to meet you. I met Mitchell at the first rest stop, he was still a little undecided on the length he should do since he's put in a lot miles over the last 3 days.

    My group ride went well. A little slower than my last century, we rolled in with 6:31 ride time, we also took in every rest stop. Rose hill sure went on forever didn't it, not real steep, just long.

    I do have question about the elevation. I registered 5300', my friend who I met at the finish showed 5800'. I thought it was a 7200' ride. Can anyone else chime in about this.
