Riding Seattle to Portland

Two days. 204 miles. Ten thousand riders. Five friends. Seattle to Portland was an epic weekend!

The weather was perfect, the company was amazing, the route was gradual and beautiful, and chocolate milk, spaghetti, and meatballs never taste as good as when you have 114 miles of riding under your belt!

Day 1 - here we go!
"175 miles to go" wasn't exactly the most encouraging sign...

Day 1 of riding totaled 114 miles - a big day! A shower and sleeping bag have never felt so good.
Day 2 was a more manageable 92 miles - we were a little stiff, but still ready to hit the road at 7.
Tah dah! We arrive safe and sound in Portland!

STP was an amazing adventure. Well-supported, a beautiful and gradual route, and judging by our experience the weather must always be perfect for riding in the pacific northwest because we enjoyed dry-but-cloudy skies and temperatures in the 70s! ;)

Now to plan a family STP adventure... my kids are up for 200 miles a few years from now, right?
