Biking instead of driving

I added 12.59 lbs of CO2 that I saved this month. I also logged that into the number of miles I have biked. I only counted the number of miles riden instead of driving. If I had included all the miles I biked that number would be...drum roll please, I'm quite proud....106.14.

Here's to more miles in June!


First (successful) quilt without Grandma's help!

I made this for EJ and Rachel's wedding gift. I hope they liked it! It's only lap sized, abou 50"x70 maybe? I can't remember now. It was hard to give it away.

Ouchie rhymes with...something I'm sure

Hopped on the Burke-Gilman today and road about 24 miles.  Took a side trip to the Union Bay Natural Area to check out my old restoration site from college.  I couldn't find it.   Everything's over grown, but I think that's what was supposed to happen.  Here are a few pics....with just one of my poor knee.

I'd say they're doing pretty well

Lettuce looks all wilty but really I just watered it and so it got matted down.

Crikey! rhymes with Bikey!

I did it!  I went on a 17 mile bike ride with a silly group and stopped at 7 bars around Seattle.  I think I only drank at four of them so I wasn't feeling too bad until we left the Elysian and had to bike back to Belltown.  Thank goodness for bike paths and a place to crash!

I want to go with this group again, but today it looks like their route was 65 miles and hilly.  Silly boys.  I was pretty tired after a flat 17.  Not sore today, but tired.  

But now I want to ride more more more!
