40 mile ride out to Alki and back for the last ride of 2012, or the first ride after the winter solstice. This was the first time out since the 'event' and the bike felt good, back to normal.
Several other firsts here, first coffeeneuring training ride of the new season, first time out with the Garmin 200, easy to operate bike computer with GPS, but mysteriously does not have a clock on the main page, a big time fail!
Met up with the several Cascade Bike Club events at the Alki Tully's, said my hellos and acknowledged Jake the Ride Leader, but went on my way as a solo. On the way up the Seattle Waterfront, had to thread through the many Seahawk fans as they stumbled into the Clink for the last home game of the football season. The Waterfront continues to be confusing as construction continues, and will do so for some time to come, but Spokane street is open and there's a new route up to the West Seattle Bridge that's somewhat easier.
All in all, a good start back.
