Olallie 2/3 of a repeat of last Sunday's three peat. In other words, I did the first 4+ miles of the O climb twice, not three times. The Olallie Rain Gods toyed with me again, as it started to rain steadily just as I pulled into the parking lot. This time it stopped after 5 minutes. I did get rained on late in the ride, but the sun came out for 30 seconds and made up for it. It was 12 degrees warmer and sunny when I got back to Issaquah.

Olallie Folly: It wasn't supposed to be one of those days...It rains a lot more in North Bend than Issaquah (and almost twice as much as Seattle's annual 37"), so there are a lot of days where it rains in NB and nowhere else. It was dry all morning in Issy. It was supposed to stop raining at 10:30 in NB, and it had stopped when we arrived at the parking lot at 11. But it started raining steadily two minutes later and never stopped. Well, actually it did, because when I got back to Issy, the roads were dry, the sun was out, and it was 55 degrees as opposed to 43 when we left Olallie. Today was my shortest ride at O ever, and while it would have been more enjoyable to ride GR, Pat and I still had a good time. I felt a little guilty since I was the one who suggested riding O after detailed weather research.

Bicycle Adventures should be called Bicycle Misadventures. During the weekend, over twenty cherry trees were cut down in front of Bicycle Adventures in Preston. That's bad enough anytime, but especially when they are blooming. Judging by the evil eye the workers gave me as they were finishing up, I'm not the only one who noticed. I'm contacting the city to see if this was permitted. Perhaps BA doesn't own the building, but I suspect the motivation was to increase visibility of their sign from I-90. On a positive note, it started to rain 30 seconds after I finished my ride.

Olallie extra credit justifications for a triple play plus alternative ride titles. Original thinking: climb 4m to the snow line 3x to get in a solid ride before more bad weather. Bonus reasons: 1) Tracy is spending a week on Maui 2) Ride enough to amortize driving time (and bike cleaning) to make the trip worthwhile 3) bonk training since I didn't have quite enough food 4) First 2019 5k (and 6k) climbing day. Alt ride titles: 1) "You are my hero" from two different groups that I passed for the third time on my second trip up 2) Twin Peaks Day since I rode up into the fog and mist three times.
