I had a three day conference to attend in Seattle so I took my bike and rode up on the Amtrak. I really liked bike commuting in Seattle.
It's mid-winter and my thoughts are on the season to come and long rides in warm weather. I thought I'd write down some audacious goals for this year. Why not?
Yesterday's ride put me at exactly a thousand miles on my Soma Grand Randonneur. I've had the bike a little over four months now and have had some great rides over varied terrain and conditions. I certainly went out on a limb with the decision to get this bike, as I had no experience riding one like it. I was basically buying in to Jan Heine's kool aid about low trail, 650b, wide tire bikes.
