Quickie Bothell Ride - 26 miles

Woke up at 5:00am again, but I decided not to let that stop me from cycling today as it did yesterday. I set out at 10:00am on my road bike. I hadn’t really used it since the old seat got messed up (only rode my mtb for ~four months). At about 3.5 miles in I noticed I wasn’t putting out as much power as I should have been so I stopped and raised my seat 1/4″ and it made a world of difference. My cadence averaged 84rpm for 13 miles then I started to bonk since I skipped breakfast. On the way back to Marymoor my cadence bounced between 65 and 90 (90 when someone would pass me and I’d get mad). All in all not a bad ride, I guess. I won’t skip my cheerio’s tomorrow.

Wildlife: Heard the Roosters in Bothell, but they were in the woods, not near the trail.

    whats Bothell?? where on earth is Marymoor? are roosters considered wildlife? you never mention what happened to this five hour gap in your story. i assume its filled with thuggery and thievery.

    Bothell is a city north of here. Marymoor is a park located in Southern Redmond. These are feral roosters. In that five hour gap I gabbed on IRC and watched a couple shows about ancient India on the History Channel.
