Sunday Morning Ride

We were in Seattle for the weekend to celebrate my sister Lori's 50th birthday on Saturday night. Then, on Sunday morning, Lori, her two children (Emily and Martin), Bobbi (my other sister), and I rode 18 miles from Lori's house to Redmond Town Center where the rest of our families met us for breakfast.

I haven't done much biking lately, whereas both of my sisters are avid riders. But Lori promised that the trail was virtually level. Lori lives right on the Burke-Gilman Trail. So we rode the trail up through Lake Forest Park and then connected to the Sammamish River Trail in Bothell.

As promised, the trail was virtually flat, and it was an absolutely gorgeous morning. The trail took us right through Blyth Park, the park in Bothell where we had gone to see American Idol finalist Blake Lewis back in April (see "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles"). At that point, it becomes the Sammamish River Trail.

The trail then continued through Woodinville, Washington and on into Redmond. We made it to Redmond Town Center at 10am, a very enjoyable and easy 90-minute ride.
