Sunrise {Finally Some Sun}

Boeing Stretch {Mt. Rainier Sunrise}

Snow Rockstar & Brian

Well, this posting is about 6 days late. I guess that's what happens when you have a blue bird weekend in Seattle; sitting in front the computer doesn’t sounds as inviting as the ski slopes. So, here it is:

On Friday, Brian and I rode in on one of the coldest but sunniest days that Seattle has had in probably 3 years. With 2 to 4 inches of snow on the ground, we bundled our bodies and went for it, jibbing our way through troughs of ice and snow for 20 miles. By the end of the jaunt we had frozen toes and two massive smiles on our faces.

There is a longish strip we ride on occasion that starts around Georgetown and parallels Boeing field. Generally, on a long boring stretch such as this, we chat away. But on this day we were fairly silent, each of us thinking about which part of our body was the coldest, I guess. Brain chuckled and said, “It's amazing how temperature dictates conversation.”

We hope you enjoy the images; we enjoyed our time on the trail. Matt tagged along on the ride home and handled himself superbly, considering the fact that he was atop Diamondback's Podium 5 carbon race bike with zero traction on his tires; he encountered a couple bridges that begged for cyclocross dismounts and some sprinting.

Awesome times in Snowy Seattle.

Bikes: Brian & Carey – Rx 1.0 Matt – Podium 5.
Coffee: Zeitgeist & French Press
Rant: Put knobbies on and go for it!
