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.

Start of Centennial Trail in Snohomish
Today I started out in 75 degrees and highly anticipated sun at 2pm. Still, I swear that traffic on I-5 north seems much worse than May 2014 when I did a bunch of rides after my Friday class had ended. I wonder if this is a permanent change in a once quiet rural place. The last thing I want to do is drive 35 miles in city traffic to bike in Snohomish County. It destroys the relaxation I get. I'm going to have to go further out I suppose.
