Terrific ride down Chuckanut Drive across the Skagit Flats into a headwind we knew would be a tailwind on our way back from L'town.
In LaConner, we got down to serious bidness: foofy espresso drinks, Gatorade, Three Musketeers bars--it was all good. The ride back was the aforementioned tailwind (22 mph w/ nary a pedal turned in anger), several hellatious town sign sprints, a two-mile stretch of gravel road at the top of Colony Mountain Road (suggested by me; I don't think it was popular) and a climb up out of the Lake Samish basin.
A super kickoff to fall with all matches burnt down to the end.
Every last one.
