This is part of our 100 Things in 2015 challenge. Here’s the full list.
Since getting new bikes earlier this year, we’ve been looking for an opportunity to take them out on a real bike ride. Our annual trip to Lake Sammamish was the perfect chance – there’s an 11-mile long bike trail that runs alongside the lake, and it’s just outside the front door!
We rode all the way down to Lake Sammamish State Park, about 5 miles south. It’s a nice, level ride, mostly gravel. We threw some rocks in, rested our legs a bit, then headed back. Turns out there’s a string of 20-ish geocaches along the trail! We managed to find about 5 of them (and got stumped by a few), then headed back to the house.
We all love these bike rides, and we’d like to spend more time on two wheels. Hopefully our new neighborhood will give us more opportunities!
