High noon, near Bow. Sky with blue mountains.
My riding buddy, Steve Fox on his beloved Easy Racer.
During breakfast in Bow Steve called Pat and Don, old riding friends. A half hour later they joined us for our first twenty miles. Everyone in our little group was over 70--and looking good! You don't see fatties on bikes. Health tip: if you want to lose weight, skip the diets--they don't work anyway. Eat whatever the hell you want and get yourself a bike!
Deception Pass. The "rapids" are caused by the Pacific Ocean rushing into Puget Sound. We stopped at a roadside view spot several hundred feet above the water. Even there you could feel it. The sense of immense power here is tangible.
It's been a long and beautiful day. Rest time. more soon.
