After watching the Mötley Crüe show at DeepRockDrive last night until 12:30 am, I got up at 6 to meet folks for a long bike ride in preparation for the RSVP which is less than two weeks away!
We started on Novelty Hill then rode down through Carnation, Falls City, then up to Snoqualmie Falls and around North Bend before heading back down through Carnation and finishing up with the grueling 8 mile climb-from-hell that is Novelty Hill. All in all, a ride of 72.5 miles.
Clint kept saying that "hills are your friends" but I'm pretty sure we have a different definition of friend. Friends don't make friends feel like they wanna puke.
But, we got back safely, after only two flat tires and 6 hours (flat tires take time to fix, and fortunately, Clint is very good at fixing them). I'm sure once I've recovered, I will think it was a great ride. It was certainly an accomplishment!
