I’m not entirely sure how I missed this, though as I mentioned previously my bike hasn’t seen much love recently. And at five weeks post-partum, I’m still not quite ready for any big rides. This afternoon though, I laced up my shoes for a quick six-mile run down along Shilshole.
You can imagine my surprise when I turned left off the Burke-Gilman, only to see all the bikes headed straight ahead, continuing on the newly completed extension to Golden Gardens. The cyclists enjoyed a nice wide lane, beautiful landscaping and a route well-protected from the adjacent road.
I’m excited to take a quick spin across The Locks this summer and test out the new road. Though, I’m certainly turning around at Golden Gardens and bypassing the hill climb to the top of the park and into Crown Hill.
