25 miles on Saturday with a group off of youtube. It was a very casual ride at 13-14mph. Stopped at a very busy "bike" intersection at the University of Washington. Lot's of "bike porn" as in $$bikes$$ riding by in the 20 minutes we were there.

17 miles today in midday heat and I would have rather done without the last three miles. But at least my handiwork this morning converting the old MTB to drop bars worked perfectly!

Zero, zilch, nada. Had wine last night which seems to be a performance inhibitor and needed to maintain the garden from non-natives and evil weeds.

I put in 50 miles on my ti Airborne Zeppelin. A picture of my bike as I was heading out the door this morning. Then a shot from Bethany Beach. I thought about asking if I could ride in the Bethany Beach July 4th parade, but did not, I prefer to stay away from Bethany when it is like it is on the 4th, especially mid day for the parade, and, of course, at night for the fireworks. Honestly, it has not been as crowded and busy as it usually is for this weekend, despite having beautiful weather.

Again, that is quite the spread and landscaping - you've posted before. REALLY nice. Mine is almost all dandelions. And is that a water view I see and I don't mean the fountain!

23.3 and about 1,100 gain. As I left the house it was kind of overcast and then got hit with a few, very few sprinkles but persevered and it cleared nicely. None of the parks I visited were overcrowded which I expected on 4th of July. On the way home I passed through ZERO GROUND neighborhood for 4th of July fireworks. It is a residential neighborhood and street closed signs cordoned it off for blocks. Folks were walking carrying chairs and mats and blankets. I noted to a passing couple at 4:30PM that the fireworks don't start for SIX hours - 10:30pm. But, at least, it is clear. I still recall my first 4th of July fireworks in Seattle. It was chilly and pouring down rain.

I hope to sleep through the mayhem.


Eke, without the fountain, all is revealed.

I've never liked that breakwater.

Pixel Magic Eraser took care of it (g)

Just leaving dock for Alaska. It was still docked when I passed it earlier, blowing its horn.

Thanks!. we planted every single thing (except the fir trees). When we bought the place it was an acre of grass. We rototilled, pulled out 6 tons of small rock and brought in 60 yards of mulch. It was a multi-year project. Now it is looking pretty good. It is a constant work in progress.

no agua view. We do have a nice view of Tiger Mtn.

I did the Edmonds Loop from near Greenlake in Seattle. Up to Edmonds partially (only a few miles) on the Interurban Trail. Hit the coffee shop in Edmonds but only picked up a few nuggets for my sustenance. I don't generally do coffee and when I do it is decaf to avoid losing a night's sleep. Can't do caffeine anymore at all. Waterfront where the ferry was just leaving. A long climb out of Edmonds to an intersection called Perrinville. Around and south and then east downhill on exquisite Perkins Way - along a babbling brook to Lake Washington and the world renown Burke Gilman Trail (BGT) which has more roots than a mangrove swamp! South toward the Univ of Washington and then back home. About 38 miles and 1,700 feet of climbing.




Edmonds Ferry Dock

Mt Baker was hidden in the clouds today

MUP that leads to the Burke Gilman Trail. This stretch is pretty smooth.

Recuperating in the back yard (yes, those are dandelions) before dragging the bike and me up a few steps into the house.

Was that the notorious HUMIDITY the midwest and east are known for or just plain old RAIN which we are known for? And I've never quite understood why we don't have much humidity but I'm not complaining. I guess out air is not quite hot enough to hold moisture - it just continually falls out of the sky.

Did a fitty. Nice temps and wonderful clouds. Met a very good boy named Bentley during my iced caffeine break.

Bentley

This was accidentally taken in the back pocket of my jersey. Kind of artsey.

Just spent 2 weeks in AK in 50-60 degree temps. My 35 mile NOLA ride today was more uncomfortable than it should have been.

Did 65 in life sucking humidity and heat today in the lovely state of Florida. Heat index by the time I got done was 107. This was by far the worse day of riding outdoors I have had in 3 years. I ended up sweating out 8 lbs today, which was just horrible, but luckily the electrolytes I put in my bottles saved me.
