MTB 1:40:00 [3] 16.0 mi (9.6 mph) +1480ft
ahr:117 max:144 weight:149.6lbs shoes: SW MTB 2014 Bling

Grand Ridge-Water Tower Loop. I rode up GR and did a loop before I met Tracy. She drove to the upper trailhead to meet me for a Water Tower attempt. GR Water Tower with Tracy. Tracy's first excursion on a "real" trail was a mixed bag. At times she looked confident, and at other times quite tentative.

Olallie Premonition proves correct so I was happy to have that lowest gear. I could tell right away that I didn't have what it takes to hammer up the longest and hardest climb in King County. In fact, I sensed it last night. Even with a DOB yesterday, 14h of riding over the last week was just a bit too much to feel fresh today. Note to Strava: learning one has achieved their third best time doesn't mean much when it is the third time riding the segment.

Walking 40:00 [1] 2.0 mi (3.0 mph) +100ft

Lake Samm loop-Gerks Wind Quadrophenia. There was no "prevailing" wind on my short ride, as it blew from at least four different directions. For some reason, the wind often does weird things near Lake Sammamish. I stopped by Gerks to check out their sale. Gerks Bikes to home in packhorse mode: I managed three tires stuffed in my bibs, two pairs of gloves in my pocket, and a two pound bottle of Hammer Gel in my rear bike cage.

MTB 3:17:00 [4] 31.2 mi (9.5 mph) +3130ft
ahr:116 max:147 weight:148.2lbs shoes: SW MTB 2014 Bling

PP-HP-Grand Ridge RT-Duthie 1.5x "Look at him go" Little things can make a ride special. As I approached a trail entrance at Duthie, an instructor held up his class of ten or so young minions. As I rolled by, the instructor called out, "Look at him go!" to his young charges. I used that as motivation later on as I was a little hot and tired climbing back over GR to head home.

GR-Duthie-Soaring Eagle Ho-hum I thought it would be darker-did Hallmark sell Eclipse cards? The sun being 92% obscured resulted in what seemed like a short evening that quickly turned into a short morning. IMHO, the eclipse was just another commercialization opportunity. I left on my ride at "peak darkness." In hindsight, it would have been more interesting to ride from evening into morning without nightfall in between. I guess "Totality" was required to get that "life changing experience."

Cycling 3:12:00 [3] 54.7 mi (17.1 mph) +2360ft
ahr:123 max:153 weight:147.2lbs shoes: SW road 2013

Medina-Kirkland-Juanita-ELSamm 92% is good enough for me. Judging by the lack of traffic, a lot of people have headed south to see the eclipse in totality. While I fail to grasp the rationale for doing that, if I ride MTB tomorrow morning, it won't matter. I'll be deep enough in the woods that it will probably be nearly totally dark, kind of like it is on a rainy December day!
