It’s also a uniquely Seattle experience with thousands of cyclist queued on a ferry.
- Chilly Hilly had 3,858 riders
- Riders came from 16 states, including Alaska, Iowa, Nevada and New York - plus British Columbia and France
- 25% of riders were female; 75% were male
- The oldest registered rider was 83 years old. The youngest was two years old.
Also don’t let the recreational riders fool you, there is a finish line to this ride and many cyclists consider it their personal mission to beat you to it. Most are just there for the fun.

Yesterday it was the Seattle Bike Swap.
Stopped by the Seattle Bike Swap during a Saturday afternoon ride. Shot with an iPhone.
Our plans today were to head out to the North American Handmade Bicycle Show in Virginia, but a small BLIZZARD got in our way. Crap.
The website Commute By Bike is covering the show, so head on over there if you’d like to see some drool-worthy bikes. Or if your’e in the area drop on by. They probably have low attendance because the whole east coast transportation system is pretty much locked up.
If you’re at the show, drop a line in the comments to let us know what’s good looking there.
