Fish Lake Trail

A wonderful post-work ride. Beautiful sunny day, lots of things starting to bloom along the trail. The air smelled so good! What a great way to clear your head after a long day at the office!

Beautiful, sunny morning. We biked in, picnicked along the trail, then biked out as the storm clouds rolled in.

A gang of 10 badass bikers, striking dread into the hearts of children and small dogs! A lovely spring day, with occasional spatter of rain, a brief hail-storm, and warm sunshine! After the ride we met up at Huck's for brews, chatter, and laughter. A wonderful Sunday afternoon!

Jillian's "Surprise" Birthday Ride
Home to Manito Park

A chilly, partially-sunny morning. After the ride, we drank mimosas and ate eggs, apple crisp, star fruit and cheesy bread. Oh, and Gordon started a fire. Not sure what that was all about, really. : )

Mileage Unknown
Tour of SoLo Parks

We went up Adams to 17th, then went east. Stopped off at Red Panda Pottery, then on to Manito Park. From there we went to Cannon Hill park, down to Cliff Park, out to Pioneer Park then back down the hill home. A fun ride! Looked at lots of awesome houses. Chilly, partially cloudy, early spring day. Yay! Time to reinstate the Sunday Brunch & Bikes!

First bike ride of the New Year!

Jillian, Gordon, Amanda, & Sean
Route: Around lower SoLo, out to Polly Judd Park and back.

A beautiful, sunny, chilly day! We had a lovely ride! Gordon on his ridiculous new mountain bike, the rest of us on our reasonable, rational, reliable street bikes : ).

Can't wait to do it agian!


I'm really late posting this. Spokefest was, like, 5 months ago. Early September. I don't feel like looking up the exact date right now.

HOWEVER: It was totally awesome. You have your choice of rides (9 miles, 22 miles, 48 miles). Gordon and I did the 22 mile ride, although considering that we also rode down to the event and back, it ended up being more like 26 miles. The course goes west along the river, then east back up it. MY FIRST TIME EVER BIKING UP DOOMSDAY HILL-------and I made it!!! Thanks to Gordon's excellent coaching! We are very much looking forward to participating again next year!
