MTB 1:05:00 [3] 10.3 mi (9.5 mph) +1360ft
ahr:106 max:149 weight:148.8lbs shoes: SW MTB 2012

Grand Ridge: Ten years to the day of Issaquah mountain biking. Facebook alerted me to the fact that it was ten years ago that I did my first Issaquah mountain bike ride at Grand Ridge. At the time, I was riding my road bikes around 10,000 miles a year. I would never have believed that I was destined to ride over 1000 times at Grand Ridge and Duthie, close to that at Soaring Eagle, 160 times at Olallie and 75 times at Raging River since these areas opened a few years ago, and 50+ times at Tiger Mountain. It seemed unfair that I had to cut my anniversary ride short today due to a broken RD spring, preventing me from shifting and forcing me to coast most of the time.

MTB 3:50:00 [4] 37.8 mi (9.9 mph) +4189ft
ahr:125 max:154 weight:149lbs shoes: SW MTB 2012

Grand Ridge RT-Duthie-Soaring Eagle: Not "following the science" paid off. In advance of tonight's rain, both forecasts I use called for steadily thickening overcast skies. I selected my clear lenses for the deep dark forest. Just as I left the garage, the sun burst forth from the heavens, so I swapped to photochromic lenses. The sun vanished before I was at the bottom of the driveway, not to be seen for the next 2+ hours of my ride. Much to my surprise, the sun did reappear. I expected it to last about 15 seconds, but I rode in sunny skies for the rest of the ride. The darkened lenses came in handy, because the return trip south to Issaquah is straight into the low winter afternoon sun. Cha-ching!

Local trails and gravel: Tweener. As in, an easy cruise in between yesterdays hard ride and tomorrows hard ride!

Tuesday Jan 26 #

MTB 3:45:00 [4] 37.5 mi (10.0 mph) +4298ft
ahr:126 max:156 weight:149.8lbs shoes: SW MTB 2012

Grand Ridge RT-Duthie-Soaring Eagle: Aggressiveness can be bred, but not meanness. "I can put her on a leash if you like," offered the pit bull owner as I rode by. The dog was 30' ahead of us, and I could tell there was no chance of the dog coming when called. Based on that, as well as the word "her," a wagging tail and no barking, I rode on. She was a nice, friendly dog, and she started to run after me. Not willing to chance it, I yelled "No!" and stopped her in her tracks. She was probably the sweetest dog in the world, but a pit bull should always be on leash and/or under control.

Monday Jan 25 #

Hiking 57:00 [2] 2.8 mi (2.9 mph) +729ft
weight:149lbs (rest day) shoes: Altra Lone Peak 4 11

Squak backyard hike: Changing up the diet. I decided that another DOB made sense in advance of more tough rides this week. I could tell it was a good idea on my easy hike, as a steady diet of hard riding has worn me out a little.

Sunday Jan 24 #

Walking 37:00 [1] 2.7 mi (4.4 mph) +300ft
weight:148lbs (rest day) shoes: Hoka Bondi 11
