Winthrop ride this Friday, 6-23!

Yay, it is finally sunny! Lets ride to Winthrop! Meeting up at Starbucks next to REI in Bellingham at 9:45 am. Stands up at 10:30. Moderately paced ride to Winthrop for lunch, then off to bike night for dinner and more riding!

Doesn't look like anyone is up to this, so I am going to make other plans.

I wouldn't change plans, solo missions are awesome, did this last year the day after the pass opened. A little damp on the west side, but turned golden approaching Washington Pass, and was dry the whole way back. I hope to get over there once a summer, others or not. Once the thought is in place to go, I'd go, all the folks not going would be missing out, oh well on their part.

You're right, that is a good place. I will post up another Winthrop ride in a couple of weeks if no one else does. I just don't feel like a solo ride right now.

Some of the best advice ever given out on this (or any other) riding forum.

Like the OP, I too enjoy riding with friends. However, sometimes schedules don't always mesh. If I still really want to go, I've learned to embrace the joy of the solo ride. Though there is something to be said for the camaraderie of a group ride, there are benefits to going solo: setting your own pace and riding limits, following your own schedule, and the freedom to adjusting your plans at your own convenience. In short, you can do your own thing at your own leisure, and that is very nice at times.

Still, there is something about enjoying a fun experience with friends.
