I was up at 6:30 this morning for a loop ride around the island. It was dark when I started, but grew light enough by the time I finished that I could turn off the NightRider. I did a loop of Mercer Island and added on another round of the south end for a ride I'm calling "Double South." Unforunately, I do not know how far it really was because my cyclometer was belly up when I started. I hit a huge bump on the north end of the island by the Lid Park and it started working, but I didn't get a final mileage. I'm going to guess around 18 miles overall.
I felt great finishing up and the knee held together fine for the rest of the day. I need to build my commitment to riding on these nice days.
Highlight of the morning: Mount Ranier standing tall and white with snow in a bright salmon and coral morning light. Absolutely spectacular! I must start to bring a camera on these rides.
