Seattle is a pretty bicyclist friendly city with a variety of long and short routes and trails for its sporty citizens to explore. Sadly, my two-wheeled adventures have long been limited to a couple of quick excursions to the grocery store - until last weekend, that is. On Saturday, Isaac gave me a guided bike tour in the fair spring weather from Fremont to Alki Beach, and showed me a side of the city I had never seen before. Loved it!
The beautiful Seattle skyline seen from the West.
The beach may be man-made, but the blue sky is all natural. March or June? Hard to tell from this photo.
We didn't spot any whales but aircraft carriers are also big (and scary).
To my great delight, Mt Rainier emerged from the haze and honored us with its presence on our way back. Honestly, everytime I catch a glimpse of this massive stratovolcano my heart skips a beat. It's just such a powerful backdrop.
