The Sky Fell Down in Seattle

I’m in Vegas and just now getting reports of the deluge and flooding in Seattle. Anyone ride in that?

Biggest chicken parm ever

In Vegas, off the strip and resorts, out where the locals eat you can get a chicken parm this big for like 8 bucks. Being the off season and all, I didn’t eat all of that, but did put a dent in it.

Eastside Trail in Jeopardy

The Seattle Times reported Saturday that King County Executive Ron Sims and the Port of Seattle no longer agree on the future of BNSF Railway’s Eastside rail line.

The original plan would have The Port purchasing the 42-mile rail line between Renton-to-Snohomish and leasing the southern portion to King County for a hiking and biking trail, in exchange for property on Harbor Island an input on the future of Boeing Field. But with support from citizen’s groups, The Port is now researching the feasibility of running diesel passenger trains on the line, seemingly abandoning the idea of a trail altogether.

The trail would have connected several others serving the area, to create a 125-mile network of recreational trail. Certainly this story is just beginning, and we can expect more information in weeks to come.

Being Evel

I spent a better part of my youth on a Sears bike trying to jump and crash like Evel Knievel – him and the Bionic man were my heroes, later it was rock n roll.

Reading about his death brings back all kinds of memories of why I even ride a bike.

Bike Hugger LDN

I’m in London next week for business and will ride all over the place. Any of our readers across the pond got some tips or want to meet up for some coffee and a ride?

In preparation for the trip, I’ve been reading the BBC, weird stuff and gossip on the Daily Mail, listening to LDN from Lily Allen, Goldie Looking Chain (You Knows It!), and reruns of Are You Being Served.
