You know your perspective about riding has changed when a 50-mile bike ride seems easy! This weekend I'm supposed to do a 50 and a 40.
At about the 18-mile mark in Bothell there's a funny little stretch of park where feral chickens (can chickens be feral?) strut along the trail. Pigeons, ducks and occasionally bunnies show up here too. It's a popular spot for people who like to feed the birds, so they congregate here, looking for the next handout.
