joie de vivreIt's Saturday

Just finished packing up the bag tonight – I’ll pay the extra fee to throw it on the luggage truck tomorrow.

So, tomorrow: package pick-up at REI, then the luggage truck. 9 months ago

joie de vivrevery sad

Bike’s drive train broken. Since it’s a tandem, no one had spare parts.

We are DNF and I’m home now.

joie de vivre9th time, I think

Still insanely stoked. Even though half the people are n00bs, and most don’t know how to ride in large groups. Even though the weather’s been bad for months, so they’re probably even less trained for it than usual. Even though I’ve done it plenty of times now. Even though other rides have better scenery, better food, better people.

10,000 cyclists. From here to Portland. The energy is crazy. I can’t wait. 21 months ago


joie de vivreThe most compelling story about why to do this ride

Over yonder

A quote:

Inspiration and humility. And entertainment, cycling pride (the loosest possible and most all encompassing idea of it) and for the humanity of it. And maybe because it’s hard and demanding and epic, and because it delivers all the glory through suffering you can take in a paceline led by a dude on a Bike Friday. Ok, and maybe because when else do you get to eat four pancakes, seven Little Debbie’s, a chunk of salmon jerky bought from an American Native in the front seat of a pick-up truck parked on the side of a road, four cokes, a tin of Pringles, three burritos, a plate of lasagna, two whoppers, a cheeseburger, three beers, five power bars, four gallons of water, seventeen electrolyte replacement drinks and a chocolate milkshake, in one day, without peeing or gaining weight.21 months ago

This morning I rode the route of the (rumored) new Lake Stevens Half Ironman bike route. Harder than I expected. It was ten miles shorter than the Flying Wheels route but had greater elevation gain/loss.

STP potluck tomorrow. Excited! 2 years ago


MatthewOne More Month

Well I finished the 65 mile Flying Wheels ride this weekend. People have said that if you can do this ride, then the STP should be no problem. The ride wasn’t as bad as I had thought it to be, the hills were pretty tough though. All that’s left to do for me is book a place to stay in Portland and figure out how to get back. 2 years ago


wgbaTraining going well

Last weekend did the ride around Lake Sammamish from Log Boom, 49 miles, followed on Sunday by riding the Chilly Hilly route on Bainbridge Island. 33 miles of hell – but beautiful hell. I can’t imagine how the STP could be harder, but maybe I’m wrong!

Doing really well, and glad that C signed up to ride with me. 2 years ago
