Rain Camp Seattle Today: The Commute Starts Now

Home Builder with Retired

Rain Camp and the Active Rain 5th Anniversary Party starts today and ends Wednesday with a barbeque at headquarters.

I'm commuting today on my trusty Felt bike from Ride Bicycles in Roosevelt. This is not really a commuter bike, but I use it a whole lot more lately, especially when my destination can be reached on old rail beds converted to bike and walking trails.

Commute time - 50 minutes

Cost - $0,00

Parking cost $0.00

Rain Camp - Priceless.

Off I go

Mel - It is and then across the Fremont ridge and along the south side of the canal, over to Magnolia and along the tracks, and then Puget Sound into Seattle.

Hi Glenn,

What a treat to sit next to you at lunch today!

And to think I tried for years to get you to join Windermere Oak Tree!!

Look forward to tomorrow.

I am jealous about the bike, and the $15 I paid for parking!

Melissa - It was a super quite ride along waterways for all but two of the 10 miles. A little on the up hill side coming home.

Phil - Nice to meet you finally. I wasn't rejecting you at Oaktree. I was and am happy at Lake.

It was a great ride, Peter, and a very informational day at rain camp.

Glenn, I enjoy cycling very much, but I don't get the chance to go out as much as I like and my area isn't exactly bike friendly.

Todd - I'm surprised someone didn't catch me in the elevator with it on the way to the 3rd floor.
