30 miles or so, now that the bike gears are working properly and the ice has melted. Stopped at Zeitgeist for the now obligatory coffee and carbs, and then through the ID to Beacon Hill, over to Seward Park, and up through Leschi, where I stopped to admire the Mountain.
Even though it's only been two weeks, it seems I was off the bike for a longer time than that. The ride gave me some time to contemplate goals for 2014, including more miles, upping the commute frequency, maybe STP, definitely RSVP, GR2R series, CTS, maybe some randonneuring, who knows? The 2,600 miles this year seems paltry compared with where I want to be next year at this time. Let's see what time and schedule allows.
