Sunshine and Magnificent Views for the Spring Equinox

We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to ride along the water south of Seattle.  After taking light rail to the southern end of the line at Angle Lake, we plunged down the paved Des Moines Creek Trail through the woods to the waterfront at Des Moines beach, a quick drop of almost 400’ of elevation.  Of course, who coasts down must then ride back up, and that was the theme of the first half of our ride.  After 20 miles of climbing and descending, and a break at Lincoln Park in W. Seattle, we enjoyed another 20 miles of coastal views from the pleasantly flat route around Alki, the Seattle waterfront, and the Ship Canal trail.  Our only disappointments were having one rider abandon the ride early because of bike issues, and finding that Bakery Nouveau in Burien is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
