My morning commutes in the summer are beautiful and a great way to start the day. Hopefully this gives you an idea of why I like it.
DKW arrives at my house to start the ride. We head out from here N on Market. That route quickly gets us to Juanita Dr. Since there is a downhill section on Market I wait for DKW after the left turn on Juanita.
Here I am.
Here is DKW.
DKW snaps a picture of me as we start up the hill on Juanita. After the 2 or so miles uphill there is a long downhill section, I normally hit 38 mph in traffic, 43 mph if there is space. I generally lose DKW on the downhill. Today I made both lights and had a bit of time to wait.
Here I am.
Here is DKW (hiding in my helmet). We now get on the BG trail and take it to the Sammamish River trail.
Here is the river.
The headwinds give me the advantage on this part of the ride
DKW is a machine though and rides alone with me even when I push it on the SRT.
The trail always has such nice views.
Check out my entire photoset for more pictures of the commute. I love this ride. It always makes me feel good in the morning.
