south end of Lake WA + Mercer Island on a single speed

I was debating whether or not to go running and since it sounded kind of laborious I opted for a bike ride. I think it was the right call.

My legs were not turning over that smoothly at first but the more I rode the faster my cadence got and by the end I was able to sustain 23 mph for short sections on the flat. That's not bad on my single speed all alone.

I had music along which rocked and when I jumped on my bike I realized that I had re-purposed the bottle cages on my cyclocross bike some time ago for a ride so went minimalist and just put the bottle in my jersey pocket.

There were SO MANY PEOPLE out picking blackberries, it must be the height of the season. Especially in the swamp between Bellevue and Mercer Island, this one guy had a ladder had put on/in a bush and he was going to town. Watching made me hungry...
