I say hopefully because the Goddess may need to rule on this one. It wasn’t until lunch was done and I (with my friends) were preparing to leave that I remembered I needed a photo.
I rode my bike along the trail to meet two non-biking friends for lunch at Universtiy Village. I am thinking that perhaps the photo with my helmet and the payment for lunch will suffice for proof of completing CLC #5.
We had lunch at Elements Wood Fired Pizza, but none of us had pizza ;’-). My bike was locked up around the back.
I took a few photos to enhance the proof of biking ;’-) Here is the trail I was riding.
A Wall at the Village.
My self-imposed rule for this challenge is that I will do them solo (or maybe one other person will be allowed to join me). No group rides will count. Riding with a group, or with a few friends, is incentive enough for a ride. CLC gives me a purpose for riding when there are no other rides to do or people to do them with. So it was today.
There was flora to be enjoyed. More of these will be seen on our Monday ride through the University of Washington. I will try to get some photos to post here.
It was while taking the photo of this forsythia that I met Monte. He stopped to chat about my Bike Friday. And his 4 (or 6, I don’t recall) Bike Fridays. He was not riding a BF, but he and his wife have done a lot of travel with them and he is a fan. He was intrigued by the pedal assist that I now have on mine and is thinking it is time to get one of his retrofitted as well. He is experiencing heart issues, and wants to keep riding as long as possible. I encouraged him to do it! We rode together for the last 4 miles of his ride (and he was never at a loss for words). I had about 2 more to my ending. Nice guy and he said he will watch out for me on the trail.
My final photo is what I call the Gnome Home. I may have posted this before, but oh well, it is one of my favorites ;’-)
An old downed tree trunk with a fine little wooded path to the gnome home is directly adjacent to the trail and makes a nice stop.
