    Glad to hear from you, Chef!

  2. 2014 MS Society City to Shore: the Hawaiian Print Challenge!

    Hey all,

    It's that time of year again, when I ask friends, family, and random passers-by to donate money to the MS Society. I'll be riding 175 miles the last weekend of September -- and through...

    It was indeed.

    I spend most of my BF time over on Clydesdales & Athenas, so that's where you can see the write-up:

    Cascade posted it, if you know where to look. It's at RAW 2014 Day 3 - A bike ride in Port Angeles, WA

    Day 1, La Conner to Coupeville: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/5013303

  6. Assorted comments

    I used Bikeflights to ship my bike from Philadelphia to Seattle. They contract with FedEx Ground, as near as I can tell, and give better prices than I'd be able to get on my own because they get a...
  7. Day 7: Raymond to Ilwaco (49 miles, 1460 feet climbing)

    The last day. Many of us didn't want the ride to end, but the time was coming to head back to "the real world". We were asked to finish the ride by noon on Saturday: that would leave time for...

    Congratulations -- and keep moving!

  9. Day 6: Amanda Park to Raymond (93 miles, 1888 ft climbing)

    At 93 miles, our last full day of riding was also our longest. "If you want to do a century, just double back on the route; we'll be looking for you. Slower riders should please be on the road by...
  10. Day 5: Forks to Amanda Park (65 miles, 1942 ft climbing)

    Thursday's ride was as straightforward as it could get: turn left out of the park in Forks; ride along Highway 101 for about 65 miles until you reach Amanda Park; turn left into the high school...
  11. Evening in Forks

    Forks was the first town on the route where we set up camp somewhere other than a schoolyard. Because we were no longer on school grounds, we were allowed to have alcohol at the campsite that night....
  12. Day 4: Port Angeles to Forks (66 miles, 3176 feet climbing)

    By the fourth day, I was moving through the ride with a predictable rhythm. I'd wake up around dawn; get dressed in my biking gear, with arm warmers, leg warmers, and a jacket; then bypass the hot...
  13. Day 3: Resting in Port Angeles

    And on the third day, we rested.

    Some of the riders found it odd to have our rest day come so early in the week. By stopping in Port Angeles, though, the riders could do more than merely rest. ...

    The ride this year ended in Ilwaco, where the Columbia river meets the Pacific Ocean. I believe that next year, they're planning a ride from Ilwaco to Walla Walla, tracking the river upstream; 2016...
  15. Day 2: Coupeville to Port Angeles, 70 miles, 3621 feet climbing

    We really did wake up at 4am that morning, to be able to be at the ferry at 6:30. The sky was dark, and mist had settled over the island. By the time I had gotten dressed for the early ride -- with...

    Not a drop of rain the whole time I was there. In a way, I felt guilty that the weather was so good; I felt bad hoping for dry weather when the more central and eastern parts of the state are having...

    The organizers transported everyone's gear. We were each allowed two 35-pound pieces of luggage, plus a camp chair. Unlike at the Bon Ton Roulet, there was no independent paid support group that...
  18. Day 1: Seattle to La Conner by bus; then La Conner to Coupeville (47 miles, 2991 ft)

    I had arrived in Seattle the day before the ride started, bringing my clothes and my camping gear with me on the flight from the East Coast. I sent my bike on ahead, to be delivered to Cascade's...
  19. Trip report: RAW / Ride Around Washington 2014

    For the past several years, I've spent a week of summer vacation bicycle touring. I started out with self-supported rides on rail-trail conversions, because I didn't have the strength for hills. ...

    Just got back from the ride I had in mind when I started this thread: the Ride Around Washington 2014. I did wind up using arm and leg warmers. It turns out that my main objection to them -- the...

    Yeah, this pretty much describes the situation. We were only in the bike shop to begin with because Phil wanted to bring his custom-made (although not custom made for him) bike that he had found on...

    Black wallnut got it right: I'll be doing the RAW ride, anticlockwise through the Olympic Peninsula.

    Thanks for the info!
  23. How can you find out whether you're tandem material -- before buying?

    My husband and I both enjoy riding. He can manage a lot more speed than I can, but we'll both do 40 miles on a nice day and 60-100 mile days for charity rides. We've joked for many years that we...
  24. How wide an area are the wildfires in Washington impacting?

    I'll be in Washington next week for a long-anticipated bike tour. As I understand things, wildfires have led to closures of some major roads in the north-central part of the state -- and the...
