Seattle To Portland

Best of luck to all those crazy bicyclists, including my dad and my friend Rebecca, who out there that are zooming along on the STP today. Here is a blow-by-blow account from a Seattle Times Reporter who is making the trip. My dad is doing the 203 mile trip in a single day (and putting all those young guns to shame) so hopefully we'll be able to get an update tonight.

Update (2:50 pm): Just talked to my dad on his cell phone. They've got 140 miles under their belt, despite the overcast and muggy weather. Keep up the great work, papa!

    Thank you for the well-wishes, Sonja! I'm tempted to say I'm going to do it again next year, but at this point I should probably wait before being 100% committed. :)


  2. Hehe,perhaps you should wait until all the soreness has gone away before you make the decision for next year. I am so impressed at your incredible feat of bicycle riding! My dad greatly enjoyed reading your documentation of the ride, along with the pictures. I think his favorite part was the reference to the dead cat(s) since he noted them as well.
