    Default Cedar River Trail Video

    I made a video of the ride I did along the Cedar River Trail back in January. The Cedar River Trail is a mostly paved trail running 17.6 miles from the southern tip of Lake Washington (next to the Boeing factory) through Renton and Maple Valley before changing to gravel as it heads toward Landsburg. The northern 13 miles are asphalt, and the southern 4.6 miles are gravel. I rode on it until it changed to gravel, then I rode onto the Cedar to Green River Trail (which is all gravel) to get to the Lake Wilderness Arboretum where I ended my video.

    I saw some interesting things along the way, including a photo shoot for newlyweds who were using the beautiful trail as a backdrop! I still have plenty more to explore here in Washington State.

ID:	17716 Also from this morning on Thomasweg. This forest road is badly rutted from the heavy equipment being used in forest management (logging). It wasn't like that in the fall. I wonder if they'll restore it?

    A mostly sunny Ostermontag to enjoy a ride! it was a little strange for me. After stopping to take the photos in Burg-Gräfenrode I had a rider pass me in town, then when we were on the open L3351 highway I caught up with him and passed because I did not want to draft him. I got about 100 meters ahead and he accelerated to start wheelsucking for about a kilometer. I decided enough of that and turned off on a side road (Klingelwiesenweg towards Okarben) back to the Niddaradweg. I'm a little surprised I don't have a Strava flyby of the guy 'cause he was kitted out on a nice road bike. Maybe he's still out riding.

    Greenbelt came to the meeting, and he graciously led us all the way to Sarah Bee's. The route I had mapped out would have been much less pleasant he said.
    Here he is leading us

    Default Let's Bike 2nd Ave (Seattle Center to the Stadiums) Video

    I finished a new video detailing the 2nd Ave 2-way protected bike lane here in Seattle. I rode the entire length of the bike lane and a bit before and after to show what it's like to ride the recently completed infrastructure (early improvements started back in 2014, remainder finished earlier this year). This is the analogue to the 15th St NW cycletrack in DC, so think of that as you watch the various improvements that have been made in this PBL. You will also notice one block (at Stewart St) where construction detours the PBL, and this has been a major gripe for cyclists here as it affords no protection, but it will get better once construction is complete.

    A couple of things that the Seattle 2nd Ave PBL has that DC 15th St doesn't (but should add IMO): concrete curbs and planters, stop bars for cyclists to rest their feet on (makes it easier to start again), concrete aprons at driveways.

    I ride part of this PBL during my morning and evening bike commutes (my building is between Seneca and Spring Streets), and it's a pretty nice ride save for some bumpiness in a few of the older sections.



    P.S. - you can see the naming convention used for some of the streets, as many streets come in opposite-direction pairs having the same first letter (Bell is SB/Blanchard is NB, Seneca is SB/Spring is NB, Union/University, Pine/Pike, etc.).

    Default Easter Tuesday in the Spessart

    East of Frankfurt spanning the Hesse-Bavaria border is the Naturpark Spessart a region of hills and forests with farms and vineyards. This was my third ride in the area.

    Another beautiful day for a ride. Headed to Hanau along the Main River then back via the Kurpark Wilhelmsbad and the Hohe Straße. The Wikipedia article says the Kurhaus building was financed by "renting" Hessians to the Brits at the time of the American Revolution.
