ahr:110 max:132 weight:146.2lbs shoes: SW MTB 2012

Issaquah trails, roads, and gravel: Glad I dressed for the weather, and ignored the forecast and road cams. The forecast was for sun, but the only place it was visible was on the road cams in certain areas, The air felt damp and chilly, so I layered up. Snug as a bug, I patted myself on the back for my wise choice:)

Grand Ridge RT-Duthie-Soaring Eagle: Bridge over troubled water. Almost every winter, high water from a creek washes out the Coal Mine Trail on GR. King County Parks is building a bridge worthy of the Army Corps of Engineers, complete with huge twin culverts, a high flow bypass route, and a beautiful wood railing. Thank you KCP!

DT Issy-Rainier Trail-Sycamore: Rainy morning followed by a beautiful (so far) sunny afternoon. First rain streak of the season: precip on 12 of the last 13 days. Stopped by the Cat Clinic for kitty food samples. Lightest since 12-19-19

Tuesday Oct 20 #

MTB 2:48:00 [4] 24.6 mi (8.8 mph) +5636ft
ahr:121 max:151 weight:146.4lbs shoes: SW MTB 2012

Olallie Ridge: Fartlek horsing around time. Loosely translated from Swedish, Fartlek means "speedplay," or sort of riding or running however you feel like at the time. This time of the year, I still have an objective for every ride, but I often don't decide on it until after I have started riding. Sometimes I don't even have a route in mind when I start. At the beginning of my ride, I stopped to talk to a woman who was riding a brown horse and walking a white horse on lead. Judging by the way she looked at the two horses in their mid-twenties as she spoke of them, I am betting that every day is a Fartlek day for her two friends. Sun low and high on the ridge, with thick fog in the middle. First snow tomorrow on the ridge.

Monday Oct 19 #

MTB 1:40:00 [3] 20.9 mi (12.5 mph) +1453ft
ahr:99 max:122 weight:147.2lbs shoes: SW MTB 2012

Local trails, roads, and gravel: One dirty bike is better than two. I wanted to do an easy, short, and flat ride. Even with its fenders, I would have had to clean up the road rain bike after a ride on wet roads. MAC was already dirty from yesterday afternoon's trail ride, so I went for that option. One bike cleanup is better than two.

Sunday Oct 18 #

MTB 2:35:00 [4] 24.9 mi (9.6 mph) +3332ft
ahr:115 max:146 weight:147lbs shoes: SW MTB 2012

PP-HP-Grand Ridge RT: More often than not, reality turns out better than forecasted. It was supposed to rain most of the day. After a bit of morning drizzle, the rest of the day was rain-free. Conditions were not ripe for PR's, but it was good to get reacquainted with wet roots and rocks. I got a quality ride in, and the sun even peeked out at times.
