I have run across the I-90 bridge a couple of times, but today we were going to bike from Factoria along the I-90 bike trail across Mercer Island across the I-90 bridge and back (with a lunch stop on Mercer Island on the way back).
Here is a look at our route.
It was a 15 mile round trip bike ride. My favorite part was that you were never on a road with vehicles. It had more hills than I had expected. Hot huge hills, but to my friends who were on mountain bikes they were tough. I dusted off my road bike. I hadn’t ridden it since my last triathlon (5 years ago). It was amazing to see the difference that a road bike makes vs a mtn bike. I really enjoyed riding my bike (especially on down hills). Looking forward to getting out on the bike more this summer.
We had 8 women and we had a great time. The day was perfect – cool enough that we didn’t get hot, little wind and the sun came out as we headed back from Mercer Island.
Liked our bike locks (aka. bike helmets) as we parked them to eat lunch.
We even saw a guy doing a practice walk, leading up to his May 1st departure to walk from Seattle to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup all while kicking a soccer ball. Check his page if you want more info. https://www.facebook.com/BreakawayBrazil?ref=ts&fref=ts
