Stopped at Zoka U-Village for the by now familiar order of a double Americano + a goodie, in this case, a Zoka Bar. Zoka is a quintessential Seattle coffee purveyor, fair trade, free range, line caught, organic, pure of heart coffee, sponsor of cycling team, plus maker of outrageous baked goods.
Once fired up, I continued past Husky Stadium, where the UW was in the process of valiantly losing to the Oregon Ducks. There had been plenty of action in the parking lot for the tailgaters, plus I witnessed the UW police arrest a young Husky fan who apparently had caused trouble on the BGT.
Today's short route took me over Interlaken, past REI, out to Seattle Center, back via the bridge to Myrtle Edwards park, and then return via the Ship Canal. The newly refurbished Bleriot rode and shifted like a dream after the TLC from Montlake Bike Shop.
More sunny fall weather on tap for tomorrow and the week time come!
