Burke Gilman - Sammamish - Burke Gilman

65 miles from Golden Gardens to Marymoor Park and back. This is double what we did on the April 14th, but I'm training for a pretty long ride in July, so I need to work my way up.

Of course, at this distance, I intend to do this ride alone, but if any of you crazies want to join for a long ride, or for just part of the ride, feel free.

    This morning, Hank, Roy, and i set out on our ride. Hank made it just a little past 12 miles, then turned around, making a 25 mile ride for him today. Roy and i kept truckin' on for 101 km total (around 65 miles). It took us 7.5 hours, and we had perfect weather the whole way (cloudy skies with cool temperatures. And headwinds going both directions :) My knee started acting up around mile 12 or 15, but i kept on riding. It got a little better in the last quarter of the ride, but it still hurts. However, i can walk. I couldn't after last time we did a distance ride. I want to try a century next month. We'll see how that goes.

    Thanks for joining, Roy and Hank. I'm looking to get rolling as soon close to 9am as possible, and am hoping to keep the ride under 8 hours. I'm training for the STP, so I want the ride to be as close to STP conditions as possible. I'd like to keep stops to a minimum (1 every 15 miles), and no lunch stop, just "energy food" along the way. That being said, I'm not looking to push people really hard. I figure a comfortable cruising pace of 10mph would be fine.

    Looking forward to the good weather and good ride tomorrow!

      Understood.
      I am staying the night here near 85th and aurora, so I will be punctual.
      My wife will be hopscotching ahead of us to the parks along the trail, so If I need any water or food, I can grab and go.
      Were on the same page with keeping down time to a minimal...(kinda defeats the purpose)
      Ill be at the golden gardens early enough to be ready to go at 9am, barring any major obstacles...
      See ya then!

    Hi Roy, glad you're looking to join us! I figure the STP is happening rain or shine, so my training should be the same.

    My phone number (in netbot unfriendly format) is 2O6-NOW-1-GAY
