Another Successful STP

Yes, another 200 mile bicycle ride from Seattle to Portland is in the books.  On the 12th and 13th of July 9500 cyclists got up early and started pedaling to Seattle.  I did the same routine as last year, stopping at the halfway point in Centralia for the night on Saturday, but with my new LeMond, my average speed was significantly faster.  My speedometer calculated an overall 16.4 mph for the trip, but I was told that was pessimistic since it included all of the 1 and 2 mph segments where I walked my bike from a rest stop back to the road.  Removing those, someone in my group calculated that we were running closer to 17.5 mph.  Pretty awesome.  The below picture shows the four of us that did this together — Edmund, Eric, me, and Malcolm.  Next year, perhaps we’ll think about doing it in one day instead of two :-)
