When Cyclists Attack

Paths to Nowhere

Ever find yourself at the end of a bike path and riding right into traffic, railroad tracks, or sidewalks or car doors? It’s a definite problem and the Seattle Parks Foundation has announced Bands of Green, an effort to make create more loops from existing paths and trails.

Hopefully they’ll coordinate the bands with the Bicycle Master plan and such topics as wayfinding.

Fair Weather Riders

FFTF loop Pam and I were disappointed that no one showed up on Sunday for a team ride at Espresso World in Richland, WA. We guessed that the few dark rain clouds either kept the Chinook Cycling Club at home on trainers or they rode mountain bikes.

Undeterred (coming from Seattle, we were relieved by the weather), we joked that the Chinook were fair weather riders and rode the FFTF loop, which was the Rad Road Race back in the day. The Hanford roads were quiet and we saw only one car. We headed back on Highway 240 with a strong sidewind and tempo pace.

While the Tri-Cities has changed so much since I lived there, and there are new sprawling housing developments in nearly every desert field or old orchard, there are also new bike lanes, paths, and even some bike art!

Year to Date

Challenge.JPGSo it’s 40 days into the “Challenge”. I’m good so far. Minimum ride for me is 30 minutes with most days around 2 hours. My wife thinks I’m nuts, but you are all keeping me honest. “I can’t bail on the challenge!”.
