Had a fun time this morning riding with four guys from the Chain Gang, an Atlanta-based group of riders who were finishing up an 800-mile, multi-day bike trip. The four riders, all between 60- and 73-years-old, started about 10 days ago by riding STP (Seattle to Portland), then headed east along the Gorge before turning north through Goldendale, Yakima, Ellensburg, Leavenworth, Chelan, Winthrop, Washington Pass, Marblemount and up our way. Today they were finishing up by riding from Bellingham to Lynden. Incroyable and inspirational as heck because these boys be strong! (Unfortunately, I only got one gentleman's name: Vern Zander.)
I was able to direct them around some of the B'ham construction on the north side of town as well as turn them on to wonderful Aldrich Road just north of Bakerview. They loved it and it felt great to showcase some of the terrific road riding we have out here!

Great job, Chain Gang!

Upcoming: Tour de Whatcom on Saturday and just a reminder that I'll be signing books right after in the Village Green. Come by and say "Hi!"
