    Ah, good catch! I didn't realize that the "B" actually meant that. Thanks for the info on the aircraft nomenclature.

    Papillon's Monuments at Night Ride Redux. We came. We saw. We had a chill time. The best one of these I've led. Thank you all.

    Sharp eyes will recognize representation of two bike shops (and a nonprofit that is Harrisburg, PA's version of Phoenix Bikes).

    Some on our ride had not been through our monuments after dark. FDR's Memorial and the WW II Memorial had special resonance.

    Default Seattle's Rainier Valley N-S Greenway Video

    I finished a new video on one of the longest neighborhood greenways here in Seattle that has seen a lot of improvements this year (including one that has been added since I gathered my footage), the Rainier Valley N-S neighborhood greenway. The Rainier Valley is a collection of neighborhoods in southeastern Seattle that is one of the most demographically diverse areas in the state of Washington and the Pacific Northwest and has a big history of immigration from many communities. It also doesn't get a lot of love when it comes to putting in good and safe pedestrian/bicycle infrastructure, so it's nice to have a greenway like this for people to use.

    My video for the Rainier Valley N-S greenway took some time to make since there were so many intersections (I made labels for each and every one) and places of interest (schools, transit stations, parks, libraries, etc.).

    I know I've said this before in previous greenway videos, but pay attention at some of the major street crossings and you will see that curb-side buttons were installed that are much more convenient for cyclists so they do not have to go onto the sidewalk just to cross a busier street. I wish the DC area could get some of this goodness, as it really makes a difference on bike rides (works a LOT better than the stoplight sensors that may or may not detect a cyclist).

    Enjoy the video!

    Had a great ride on a beautiful afternoon yesterday with delightful company, Nadine Beck, out and back on the WOD to the Reston Lakes and Rollers. I really appreciate the wide shoulders, bike lanes & most of all, courteous motorists in Reston VA!

    Default Kitsap Color Classic 2018

    Now that I've been in the Seattle area for a full year, I decided to do this bike event that I had missed due to initially moving in and getting used to my new home. The Kitsap Color Classic is a group ride hosted by Cascade Bicycle Club that takes folks around the northern parts of the Kitsap Peninsula. The ride start is in Kingston, WA, at the ferry dock.

    In order to get there from my apartment in Tukwila, I rode the light rail as far north as I could into Seattle, then rode my bike 14 miles north along the Interurban Trail (North section) to Lynnwood (near Edmonds) through pouring rain and stayed the night before in a motel. The morning of the ride, I rode to the ride registration in Edmonds, ate some breakfast, and took the ferry from Edmonds to Kingston to start the ride. As I was putting my bike down on the ferry, I looked up and happened to see a friend who had gotten on the same ferry (there were 3 that people could take for the event), so we rode together with his friend for some time (he peeled off after we did the first loop because his knees weren't feeling great).

    The ride was split into 2 loops (25 miles and 39 miles which overlap and can be combined for a 57 mile ride), and while the hill climbs weren't very challenging, per se, I was loaded with all of my stuff that I had brought for my stay at the motel. I made it, but my legs were giving out by the end of the ride, and my friend graciously waited at the top of each hill during the final grueling 15 miles of the ride. Plus, after we finished the ride, we had to take the ferry back to Edmonds and bike back to Seattle (another 15 miles). My legs have never felt so tired before!

    The ride was fun, though, and I saw some beautiful autumnal colors in the trees (there are mostly evergreens here, by comparison). I look forward to doing it again (albeit with less stuff in my panniers!).
