Touch Public Art in Seattle
Sunday was a perfect day to join CAL and GVB on the long-awaited 'Touch Public Art in Seattle" ride I had purchased at the Learning Factory Foundation auction. Warm, brilliant sunshine. We started at Gas Works Park, pedaled over to check out the new J.P. Patches statue and Waiting for the Interurban, Taco Del Mar Lenin, and the Fremont Rocket.
Out to the Locks, and down Interbay led us to the Olympic Sculpture Park, Pioneer Square and a caffeine infusion at Zeitgeist. Then through Eastlake, where GVB remarked that this could have been a tour of historic bars of Seattle, and out to U of W.
Of course, we were hungry at this point, so CAL led us to a great venue for a Burrito Bravo in the Golden Oldies parking lot. Satisfying! More pictures of the ride here.
Topped the 1200 mile YTD mark with this ride.
Hope that the weather holds for Kitsap CC, but the outlook is wet and windy.
