I have been struggling to get to ride outside lately. I get home after dark and the roads have been too icy. Today however, I got up early! The rain hadn’t hit yet, so I jumped in the saddle and headed out. Today’s ride took me south from MLT along Meridian heading to Seattle. I intersected with Roosevelt which took me to the U District. NOT my favorite place being a WSU Coug. I picked up the Burke Gilman to Lake Forest park, then my uphill slog to home. 26 miles. DAMN it felt good to be outside!
