Man it was cold this morning! The day turned out perfect, what a fun ride. Martin, Todd, Kurt, Jeff D all showed up fixed and it was so awesome.
Learned a few things today.
- Do not drink heavily the night before if you are planning on actually performing well on the ride
- Fixed gear rides should NOT be started from West Seattle.
- Martin is right sometimes.
I’ll explain some of these.
I spent a lot of last night wiring up my shop in the basement. Added a breaker and ran new romex to the room. 3 new 4′ strip lights and switch, 3 double duplex receptacles and some clean up. Nothing makes working with electricity more fun then draining beer and scotch into my gullet… so I did.
It’s a good 15 miles from my house to the Dog in front of Husky Stadium which is the Saturday meeting place. which means whatever route we take, I need to remember to mentally add another 30 miles before I leave the house. I should have parked at the U.
As we crossed I-90, Martin asked why I hadn’t gone through the tunnel to head home. He was right. In my state I should have headed that way instead I followed them up Madrona and headed to Nickerson.
