I am fortunate to live near Lincoln park which has great views of Puget Sound and environs and nice network of gravel paths. So off to the park I rolled with my new Phat tired steed.

I'm not sure why but it seems every few years I go for a period of not riding for months on end and then when I get back on the bike I remember why I love it so much. Rediscovering the joy of spinning along on two wheels taking in the sights, sounds and smells at the speed of life and unencumbered by a steel cage. At that point I wonder why I have been such a dolt as to be off the bike for so long!
I have a number of bike projects in the queue that I intend to document on this blog, and quite a few that I completed this year, and last, that I plan to write up retroactively. For anyone reading this I hope you have happy holidays and get a chance to unwind as 2012 comes to a close.
