Ok its time to break out the granola and tofu again, I am heading up to B'ham for the Padden Pedal. Its one of the oldest mtn bike races in Washington. The race itself seems like its all hill. Last year racing out of expert they started all the men at one so maybe 80 riders raced for the gate at one time. By the time I got to the top of the first hill I lost sight of all the riders. Anyway with the Seattle to Portland ride coming up Sat and Sunday this is a big biking weekend.
