***********************RIDE UPDATES AND BLABBERING*********************************
6/21/2019 had camping plans that fell through and decided to hit up the Foothills trail while by kid enjoyed that last day of 11th grade. i leave so late it rediculous, but ended up pulling through and making the 50 miles to the Buckley pot sop and back. A chip munk tried to commit suiicide under my wheels, birds tweeted like all get out, there were ducklings in the swamp rest stop, the sun broke out and made my weat for the up hill portion of the ride and then I was chilled on the slight downhill that gives enough coating action for a serious breeze. it was a lomg day of pedaling but I made a new friend and his tiny pdog at the coffee stand where I was only stopping for water and ended up matching the new friend a milshake. anyhoo, are you still rading this crap?
Some random human sent me a PM in FB asking to deliver posters, postcards to local bike shops for a ride in Spokane. So thats what I did with my morning before my evening shift. I rode down to Sumner, hit the bike shop, they got the poster and a few pamphlets and then stopped at the health food store and the library and gave them some info. anyhow, rubber side down folks
Yikes, I have ridden so much since this last update. Rode the Xtreamly bumpy road to Goldmyer with my sis to show her the wonder that is the natural hot water. Rode the Daffodil classic with the Tacoma Wheelsmans and the day before I rode the Chehalis Western for about 40 miles. I even rode to the Y for a before work work-out. oh yeah!
4/26- wow its been a while. Rode the Foothills yesterday for about 40 miles. It was a gorgeous cloud covered day with warm temps. I pedaled my heart out and met some wonderful company to chat with for a few minutes before getting back in the saddle. I am so very grateful for legs that can take me places, a bike that puts up with my abuse and the last inute chance for a day off of work.
3/2- heading out on the trail now for a stretch before a night of wild partyng with the niceces and nephew.
Just rode the Chilly Hilly last weekend (2/24/2019) and it the ride was true to its name. Riders were lucky that the rain didnt blanket us and that firely ball of sun actually broke out to remind us of warmer days to come. glad I did it, but am looking forward to not paying for any rides and just riding away from my doorstep.
