Cougar 10 | bike commute

Todd Morse Tucker and I met up at the Red Town Trail for our usual Wednesday morning 10-mile loop. Only problem is neither of us knows the route very well yet. Plus it was pitch black.

At least it wasn't foggy or raining too because we made more than one wrong turn.

The biggest detour was really only a few hundred meters but in the dark it felt much longer. The other detours were very short or just consisted of us standing at an intersection thinking about which way to go for a few seconds.

In the end it was a super fun run! The leaves are falling en masse and the ground is getting covered with all different colors. This week and next week should be the peak of this and it makes me want to get our here during the day as it's incredibly beautiful right now.

We got to the half way point about five minutes behind schedule and we reached '20-minute tree' about seven minutes behind schedule. But I managed to pick up the pace some from there and Todd didn't complain so we scooted home those last two miles. Nice.

My ride to work was - predictably - slow. :)

I think I have a new favorite route home, I head up Lake WA Blvd instead of staying down on Lakeshore and this way I get to avoid more cars. That's a plus in my book.
