Finished the year with a 37 mile loop around Seattle, including visits to Golden Gardens, Magnolia Bluff and Leschi, all of which were dominated by the clear, cold, dry weather and views of Rainier.
During the year, I rode more times than the previous year, as well as more miles (about 2,750), 117K ft. elevation gain and 12.1 mph average speed. But, no century ride this year, as the longest ride was 97 miles on CTS #12 (the Flaming Geyser out and back). Greatest elevation gain was on the CTS #10, Renton-Black Diamond-Issaquah Loop, topping out at 3,757 ft.
And, I can count the 2014 Coffeeneuring Challenge as another significant accomplishment, for the 2nd year in a row!
2015 plans include GR2R, CTS again, STP, RSVP, weekly commutes, more coffeeneuring, and keeping the rubber side of the bicycle in contact with the planet while doing so.
