When the Seattle weather is forecast to be good, I bring along the bike for after work rides. With sunny skies and temperatures in the upper 70s F (for my European friends, I must stick to Fahrenheit since Celsius just does not quite connect), the bike and gear were packed for the journey.
Often the post-work ride includes routes around Lake Washington. The main bike route around the lake comes in at about 55 miles. Monday and Tuesday rides did not fully circumnavigate the lake but I logged about 35 miles each day over different routes. Monday's route included crossing Lake Washington via the I-90 bridge. Luckily, there is a separate and dedicated bike lane crossing the lake. Is there any place more beautiful when it is sunny and warm?
While the photos were captured using my old iTouch, I hope you enjoy a sample of the lakeside scenery.
