Seattle Tarckup/ride - Vashon Island Sunday morning 8/28

Planning to catch the 8:20 ferry to Vashon from the Fauntleroy terminal (right by Lincoln Park in West Seattle). If we all make that one, roll out immediately after.

I want to do some variant of the Vashon/Maury Island loop and shoot for being done at a lunch-esque time, at which point lunch and beverages somewhere.

Pace-wise, whatever will enable us all to ride together, or we can split up if some want to go fast and some want to keep it more chill.

That's the extent of the plan so far. I am not the "organizer", so don't sue me or anything like that.

In, at least for the ferry ride and hang out times. Not sure how much riding I'm up for, but will grab coffee/putz around the island for a bit if I'm not up for a long ride. See you all bright and early Sunday.

Wanna hold hands?

What kind of roads is this going to be on? Rather than ride my Elephant, it might be nice to hop on my road bike for once.

I'm gonna be on 25s. Provided the issue discussed in the TMI thread heals in time.

Well I just woke up, so I'm not going to be able to make it to West Seattle in 40 minutes. You nerds have fun.

Doing it right when the shades match the tarckcap

And I think maybe you can see Marley's reflection if you zoom in.

I forgot i sold you those shades. They look good.

I logged into my paypal several months after that and was like, "whoa! free money!!"
