Matt suggested the theme for today: Meeting Matt. I've known Matt through the internet and his great blog Front Door Adventures for a while but we never actually met in real life until today. Matt rode over to Issaquah from Seattle and met me at the shop shortly before closing. We then walked the four blocks to my home where I grabbed the Octocog and we rode a quick loop up the Issaquah-Preston Trail to Highpoint, under I-90, back west along the northern edge of Tradition Lake, along the trail under the powerline and then back past the high school to my place. Matt's a very cool guy, adventurous and philosophical and not nearly as blurry in real life as he appears in the pictures I hastily snapped. We're already plotting future adventures together.
7 miles for the day. Matt wound up with a lot more, he rode back to Seattle.
Keep 'em rolling,
