Seattle Bike Swap - Save The Date!

February 3rd at Magnuson Park.

https://www.cascade.org/connect/seattle-bike-swap

It might be cool to get a group of us together for lunch after everyone has satisfied his/her needs on the floor.

If some of you locals are interested, hit me up with PM or email: [email protected].

Hope to see you there

DD

@Andy_K, remember us talking about the train from Portland to Seattle?

Where's that fleabag hotel you were talking about?

I was thinking the same thing. The place I was telling you about was the Panama Hotel, but the rates look a bit higher than I remember.

Ok, so we play hooky from work on the 2nd, ride down to Union Station and take the 8am, which pulls into King Station around noon, do some pub crawling until the wee hours, take a nap at the train station, hair of the dog in the morning and a greasy breakfast, hit up the Swap Meet, take the 6:10 back.

Or maybe some of the Seattle BF'ers will meet us up and we can do some real drinking.

These benches look pretty comfy:

There are always cheap hotel rooms in SeaTac, though the pubs probably aren't as good.

Seems like I owe some host time to a few Portlandians (or should that be Beavertonians?) I’m about 6.5 miles SW (but also 350’ higher elevation) from King St. Station. Several extra beds available, but my beer selection is typically pretty lame, although that can be easily remedied!

Magnuson Park is diagonally across the city, probably about an hour’s ride away.

Bike "swap"? Why would I swap bikes? I want all the bikes for myself!

Booth 29

Hey DD!
I’ll be there again in booth 29. I’ll have a bunch of miscellaneous stuff to sell, maybe my Medici Pro-Strada frameset, maybe my Orbit tandem, maybe.a bunch of wheels.
Stop and say hi!

@Andy_K, this is sounding an awful lot like an invite...



And a guest cyclist never arrives empty handed...

Invitation has been confirmed by She Who Gets the Final Say on such things.

But you might think twice about what you choose to carry up that 350’ of elevation gain. There are stores up in this rarefied atmosphere, although they may not have the Orygun beers that you love.

Thank you for the invitation!!! I look forward to visiting. And not to worry, good beer makes both bike and rider feel lighter if it is known that it will be shared with friends after arrival.

I wonder if this swap would be a good place to unload the horrible trike I picked up last summer? (No, I don't need full retail on that baby). The real question, I guess, is would I be able to ride it all the way from the Edmonds ferry dock down to Sand Point without getting killed?

It's a national landmark, now. As the central place in the novel Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, it's famous for that, too. (Pretty good marketing - I need to get someone to write a bestseller tearjerker that takes place in the dumpy little hotel that I manage) My daughters and I had tea in the tea room there after finishing reading the novel together, walking around the neighborhood looking at the other places mentioned in the book. Nice family experience.

Hoping to make an appearance this year for the first time in about 7 yrs. Got a few things I'm looking for. Have to head back by 2:00 or so for a fundraiser crab feed that night for my daughter's softball club. Trying to talk my dad into tagging along too.

I used to stay there when I took the train up for baseball games. It's a neat place, but honestly not as nice as yours.

Following! I would love to meet up for lunch at the very least.

Btw, for those staying at Dfrost's, there are some amazing beer stores up in West Seattle. Beer Junction and Super Deli Mart. There is also the Beverage Place Pub that is a great beer bar.

Probably dating myself, but is there still a "Blew Eagle Tavern" under the West Seattle Viaduct? It was located right between Bethlehem Steel and Todd Shipyard. Quite a wild place in the 60's. Don

Beveridge Place Pub (note spelling not “fixed” be a spellchecker) is about 5 blocks below my house.

Would everyone want to do lunch close to the venue or someplace further away? I can do research and come up with something nearby...in fact, if anyone from the OR crew wants to view all my bikes up close and personal we can do lunch at McMenamin's Anderson School which is about 10 miles north of the venue and steps away from my "college dorm".

I plan on getting in and mainly looking/hanging out. I'm only searching for a Campy Italian BB and want to pick up a bunch of consumables (cable inners in particular). I don't suspect I'll have to search hard for either item, so this is more a social thing for me this year.

Cool! So maybe we can bring some Oregon beers for you to enjoy at a later date and then visit the pub for some Washington beers shared among friends.
