Saturday Oct 3 #

Walking 48:00 [1] 2.7 mi (3.4 mph) +200ft
weight:148.2lbs shoes: Hoka Clifton 11

Confluence Park-Issaquah Streatery with Tracy. We didn't eat at the StrEATery today, but we did play with a beautiful Rhodesian Ridgeback 3 month old puppy.

Friday Oct 2 #

MTB 2:56:00 [4] 23.7 mi (8.1 mph) +3890ft
ahr:129 max:155 weight:147.4lbs shoes: SW MTB 2014 Bling

Tiger Mountain: Issaquah-North Bend Mountain Bike Mecca Sixsome. After road rides last Sat. and Sunday, I followed up Olallie on Monday with Grand Ridge, Duthie, Soaring Eagle, Raging River yesterday, and Tiger today. I can't imagine ever needing more mountain biking trails than what I have close to home. If I do, I could add Tokul and Black Diamond some week. I think Eight is Enough. Tired from all of the riding (16h/20,000'+), my AS was pretty low and I faded. The new climbing trail named Powerlink is a gem.

Thursday Oct 1 #

MTB 1:58:00 [4] 18.2 mi (9.3 mph) +3179ft
ahr:134 max:155 weight:147.8lbs shoes: SW MTB 2014 Bling

Raging River: Last (?) week of "summer' slightly spoiled. We've lost the deep blue skies and 80 degree temps of earlier in week, but it's still pretty darn nice. Issy had a little fog this morning, but NB was clear. Superb dirt conditions!

Wednesday Sep 30 #

Hiking 55:00 [2] 3.0 mi (3.3 mph) +700ft
weight:149lbs (rest day) shoes: Hoka Bondi 11

Squak Mountain backyard hike: Done and Dusted. No more dusty trails until at least June, thanks to last week's (and future winter) rains. I cancelled my planned road ride under blue skies when this morning's sunrise was filtered through dusty orange air. The AQI shows as good, but we have imported a little smoke from the CA fires.

Tuesday Sep 29 #

MTB 3:28:00 [4] 35.1 mi (10.1 mph) +3891ft
ahr:113 max:142 weight:149.2lbs shoes: SW MTB 2014 Bling

Grand Ridge RT-Duthie-Soaring Eagle: Preparing Augusta National for the November "Masters" The Masters is being held in November this year. We have our own November "Masters" test. It's called rain...lots of it. King County Parks takes care of Grand Ridge as meticulously as the Augusta greenskeeper. I stopped to talk with Rob and Chris from KCP at the site of a huge improvement for the creek crossing on the Coal Mine Trail. KCP has engineered a solution to prevent the creek from washing out the trail almost every winter. Thanks!!!

Monday Sep 28 #

MTB 2:45:00 [4] 24.4 mi (8.9 mph) +5749ft
ahr:124 max:157 weight:148.6lbs shoes: SW MTB 2014 Bling

Olallie Ridge: Extra cautious is alway better than extra foolhardy. I passed a rider on the climb who was wearing the typical XC style helmet that you normally see at Olallie. Strapped to his handlebar was a full face DH helmet. Most riders likely feel that a DH helmet is overkill for Olallie, at least until the moment before a face plant! While I've never seen a rider use two helmets on one ride, it's also been a really long time since I have seen a numbskull (no pun intended) not wearing a helmet at all while mountain biking.

Sunday Sep 27 #

Cycling 1:33:00 [3] 26.8 mi (17.3 mph) +910ft
ahr:117 max:136 weight:147.6lbs shoes: SW road 2013

Lake Sammamish CW: Still a few personal firsts left to bag. With 250,000+ miles on bikes, one would think that I have ridden clockwise around Lake Samm, but I had not. I've avoided riding northbound on WLSamm because of a narrow road in poor condition with no shoulder. There is a bike "path" on the southbound side that is technically two-way, but I think it's goofy to ride northbound facing traffic. Construction is under way to add a bike lane on the northbound lane, and there is a temporary shoulder in place. I used that, as well as a few other tricks to navigate my way though the mess. I'll ride around Lake Samm CW again, but probably not until the project is finished.
