  2. (The thin red line is the one Google Maps says I can take, but legally cannot since the green area is private property.)
  3. I found out that some update to the Twitter app I use when I want location actually got API 1.1 working again, so the all of the tweets have mostly-accurate locations on them.  (I use another app for general Twitter, but it isn't smart enough to force my phone to do a GPS location lookup.)
  4. I started at 05:00, with heavy winds from the south hindering me.
  5. I couldn't take my planned route across the José Rizal bridge, so I had to take Jackson to 23rd instead.

  7. The route I took from the I-90 Trail to Issaquah was the same one I took back on my first Metric century (100 km).

  13. I came across another cyclist on the shoulder while he was eating an apple.  Since we were both headed for North Bend, we rode together for a bit and stopped in North Bend for a chat.
  14. His touring bike had the same tires as those on my Dutch bike.  Since the thin tires on my bike aren't much fun on gravel, I wondered if perhaps I should go for something a bit thicker too.  I'd also have to learn how to handle gravel.

  17. We parted ways as he was headed for Snoqualmie Pass.  Oddly enough, I did end up at the Cedar Falls trailhead for the trail he was taking to Snoqualmie Pass later.
