Riding local, riding abroad. Doesn't matter. "One less car" bike commuting and "Bikes Belong" advocacy, plus "I ride solo" bicycle travel. Racing is fun, but there are so many equally great reasons to ride.
Brilliant sun today so time to drop everything and ride a 28.5 mile loop to West Seattle and the Duwamish Trail. Brunch at this longshoremen's cafe with all the seniors and babes in arms. Along with your eggs you enjoy the maritime decor, including this reminder of the 1930s, the Kalakala, which is a heap of scrap somewhere.
