Two words: weather window

Two more: great company

I met Aaron S, Greg and Suzie K, Ryan G and Dean J at the Leschi Starbucks and was blown away by the number of people gathered there today! It must have been at least 50. A group of 8+ Garage riders rolled out, there were about 20 Hagens Berman riders, some Starbucks riders, etc. Kinda nuts.

One hour before the start it was pouring rain at my house so I sent a text to Aaron asking if he was still; riding. He replied, "Yup". Okay then.

And we were rewarded handsomely. I was never cold; in fact I took my rain jacket off for the majority of the ride and my gloves off for about half of the ride.

At 405 Suzie, Dean and Greg turned left and went home and Ryan, Aaron and I continued east. At these speeds you have plenty of wind to chat and chat we did; constantly. Blah, blah, Subaru WRX, blah, blah Ken Block Racing, blah, blah, budding team romance, blah, blah. You get the idea. Good times; for a guy.
