Seattle to Portland 2013

The STP is a 200-mile bicycle ride & the largest multi-day bicycle event in the Northwest, with up to 10,000 participants riding from Seattle to Portland. The route takes you through the scenic valleys, forests, and farmlands of western Washington and Oregon. This was my 1st year participating!

  1. Friend's of my husband's family mentioned they were doing the STP. I told them they were INSANE to undertake such a long ride. They asked me if I would join them and I looked into it....
  2. Yep. My suspicions were confirmed. They were totally nuts. Still, after thinking about it long and hard.....
  3. .... I got ballsy and signed up! Then I started to get nervous as I watched others sign up and the quick countdown until all the spots were sold out!
